For those Aussies indignant at me calling Vegemite the world's worst food, here's a piece I once wrote about it:…
Boko Haram militants reportedly planning to attack and take over the major Nigerian city of Maiduguri…
.@lscott1967 Stinky tofu is fermented tofu, chou doufu in Chinese, meaning "stinky tofu"
On balance, stinky tofu is even worse than Vegemite. Vegemite is disgusting only to ingest; stinky tofu is lethal at 50 feet.
Worst food ever, along with stinky tofu RT @mashable: American kids eat Vegemite and react with absolute disgust.

I'm feeling deflated. After asking readers to find the mistake in the column (esp over on Facebook), readers are claiming lots of errors!
Copy editors often save us writers! RT @Amynishiki: @NickKristof I'm a copy editor; that was a piece of cake!
You win. Now you have to take over my column RT @Amynishiki: @NickKristof it should be forgoes, not foregoes
No, my mistake is worse than that RT @mll404_miller: @NickKristof I was taught never to start a sentence with the word "And"

The biggest Presidential whopper was that sanctions on Russia are working. Huh? They were supposed to improve Russian behavior.
@NickKristof Wow. And making speeches is the Presidenting thing he's done best. Doesn't bode well...
