Oh, Crapitalization!

Grading research paper before 3rd Marking Period papers. I've proofread, a buddy has proofread (even made the buddies read the second drafts backwards), Microsoft Word has spell-checked, the 6th grader writer has proofread (a very big assumption), but still sooooooo many mistakes.
So, I hand back the papers, covered in red ink, and a student who sits in the back looks over my comment, grade and proofreading marks and exclaims, "Oh, crapitalization!"
That sums up the day perfectly.
