We had to be especially careful typing documents dictated by Dr. Thomas Curd.

Saw this headline in a newspaper for medical records professionals, believe it or not.   I don't remember the exact wording but do remember the typo:

RECORDS INCIDENT AT NAVEL HOSPITAL

They specialize in belly buttons!

I once heard a perfectly legitimate sentence in a dictation that cracked me up:

"The patient's umbilical hernia was repaired by naval surgeons in Korea." 

Mr. Sirius said they must have been specialists.  What can I say?  It was late.

For some reason, I have difficulty when typing words that contain double letters. For instance, school often turns into scholl, or room into romm.

I once typed up a list of names that were to appear in a publication, and submitted it for approval. My editor couldn't stop laughing when she got to:

Bobby Paston (but with my quirky typo on the first name, and another misspelling on the last)

I get bobby/booby, but what does Paston become???

My guess:  pasteon (paste on)  or pastie/pasty.  The little tassel things that strippers use.

That's exactly it; I was trying to not be explicit, but I guess I erred and was not very clear. Sorry for the confusion!

I thought it perhaps had become Booby Patton...

The one I've seen a number of times, often done by vandals outside schools:  dropping the L in public.
I have CDO.  It is like OCD but with the letters in alphabetical order, as they should be.

Most of www.damnyouautocorrect.com would fit here, but this one made me CRY, had to find it on it's own.
