Saw an ad yesterday that showed a photo of a device, and overlaid on the photo was the word Qtoscope.

I assumed that was the device’s brand name, and I was amused; I kinda thought that a Qtoscope should be what you use to look for cuteness. “I pointed my Qtoscope at this kitten; it was off the charts!”

But it turns out that the label in the ad was a typo. The ad was really for a new high-tech brand of otoscope, used for looking into ears. And I guess someone accidentally added a tail to the first letter.

But I like the word Qtoscope better.
