Over the weekend, I watched "Crash" on iTunes (good movie!). Each section of the movie had a subtitle. One was this:
"A really good cload"
At first I jumped at the opportunity to learn a new word, but when it wasn't in the dictionary, I said, "Oh! I should have known. A typo!"
They meant "cloak."
The "K" isn't anywhere near the "D," so I don't know how they made this error!
