Never Trust a Film That Can’t Spell Cannot

The trailers for the upcoming film about the English literary legend of Beowulf not only make it smack too much of 300 for my taste, but they can’t even spell cannot right. 

This is not too surprising.  I’m actually shocked when I find a student who actually uses cannot correctly rather than ignorantly writing can not.

I’m sure there are many of you out there who will find some ridiculous reference saying that both spellings are correct, but sorry, both you and your references are being silly.
