This epic Guardian headline may be the typo of the year

(No, the main issue isn’t “more scratchier”.)

Postcript: The mistake has now been fixed. A Guardian moderator wrote in the comments:

No, we wouldn’t have had a catastrophic typo like that on the front page, that would have required monumental stupidity resulting in someone being laughed out of the office and forced to hide in the toilets weeping for 30 minutes.
