Bruce Arthurs:

Not from the press, but I must admit a fondness for an online comment I came across that said:

The name "Grauniad" was invented by the satirical weekly Private Eye in an era when the Guardian had a deserved reputation for lax typo control. Like The Daily Telegraph became the Daily Torygraph.
