With great appropriation of somebody else's catchphrase comes great misspelling of the source material

A good cause, but they spelled Spider-Man wrong

Now don't get me wrong—I'm a socially conscious and responsible little stuffed bull and I am horrified by what's going on in Darfur (educate yourself here), and I'm pleased some organizations have been set up to provide relief aid.

Therefore I honestly don't mean any disrespect over what is, in the end, a small piddling matter that pales before mass human starvation, disease, and genocide, but...

Would people in the general public please learn how to spell "Spider-Man"?:

Ahem. Sorry. That's a tiny and unworthy pedantic rant compared to the grave situation at hand. Sorry 'bout that.

So by all means, get the truth and get involved: please support the good work that organizations such as Dine for Darfur do. If you own or manage a restaurant, find out at their site how you can participate in fund-raising. If you just enjoy eating at restaurants, find out which and support those restaurants running the Dine for Darfur program. Or, do without that doughnut this time around and send the money as a contribution to Dine to Darfur.

Just tell 'em Spider-Man, capital S-P-I-D-E-R-HYPHEN, capital M-A-N, sent ya.
