Technically a typographical error is one that effects print based texts, and publications and is caused by mechanical rather than human error.

What people refer to as a typo is really a typing error.

I love 'Christ.' That's brilliant, that full stop makes a huge difference. Turns the name from another word for messiah to a quietly-expressed exasperated profanity.

Ah the power of punctuation.

Althogh technically (and to frustrate the pedants) the last one is not punctuation, but rather a typographical symbol.

It was *NSync actually. The * was an alternative apostrophe (they were originally 'NSync and is "In Sync" but with the I missing). 90s pop is the only thing worth getting pedantic about.

Also - it's made up the last letter of each band member's first names (Justin, Chris, Joey, Jason, JC). it works on many levels.
