Resistance through typos

[Norwegian newspaper] Ringerikeblad's editor... found typographical “errors” particularly suitable for defying the Nazis. When his paper was compelled to carry a lead article declaring that “in this war the Germans are utterly senior in men and cannons (menn og kanoner)”, the printed copy read: “menn og kaniner” (men and rabbits).
