Large Hard-On Collider

There's an alarming article in today's New York Times about the possibility that the Large Hadron Collider, a massive physics experiment being constructed in Switzerland, could very well create mini black holes that would swallow the Earth. Still, there was a bit of levity in the article—at least for my inner 12-year old—when, in the print version (it's been corrected online), they misspelled "Hadron", giving us the "Large Hardon Collider". This should make for a nice "Corrections" entry in the paper.
