A Very Funny Typo

More than four years ago Project Gutenberg introduced a glaring but very funny mistake into the first paragraph of their digital edition of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book, adding the word "tush" instead of "tusk" to the poem that opens the chapter "Mowgli's Brothers". More than four years later, Google now finds over 2,500 sites quoting the "tush" version of Kipling's poem, including several universities and even the Encyclopedia Britannica!
