Introducing: Guess That Typo!

Allow me to introduce you to a new series we'll be running from time to time; "Guess That Typo!".

Each game will consist of a picture depicting a "literal" visual representation of a typo made in a sentence or phrase. The typos illustrated are actual use-able words in their own right and will never include words that do not exist in modern lexicons (so no abbreviations or swopped vowels etc).

A clue to help with the association between the typo and intended meaning, is given in the uploaded graphic's filename.

In order to claim smart-ass points for the correct answer, send me an email that includes:
a) the typo and
b) the intended meaning of the original sentence or phrase.

Ten smart-ass points will be given to respondents with the correct answer and five smart-ass points will be awarded for half-answers.

The person with the highest tally of smart-ass points after five games will win a book voucher (value to be determined).

If you have a visual idea for 'Guess That Typo!', email me and if it's blogged, you'll get two smart-ass points (for obvious reasons, a successful submission forfeits your chance to play in that session).

Got it?
Let's play Guess That Typo!

As this is the first in the series, I'll give you extra clue to kick this off and make a cake-walk out of it.
"Dr Frank-N-Furter is a featured character here."
