Typo of the day

I will not name the contributor to the N/T book who managed this singularly but inadvertently gruesome image:'the harvesting of skin from the woman who, in a highly apt case of symbolism, is noted a universal doner.'

NB For some US readers, in Turkish Cypriot food shops, the meat carved off a skewer is a doner kebab, aka shawarma or Gyros in Lebanese and Greek restaurants. As in the response of Vivien in The Young Ones when asked by the Wicked White Queen of Narnia ' Son of Adam, would you like some Turkish delight?'-'Nah, but if you've got a doner kebab...'
