The Grauniad nickname is quite common as they used to be known for their typos, which I think one time included the "Grauniad" typo

I love a good survey of a lunchtime...maybe afterwards I will do the BBC 7-days quiz. Losergeek!

Re: Grainiad ask who are you?

their online website was called www.grauniad.co.uk for a while, but it looks like they now redirect to the normal spelling.
