Queen 'lays 2,000 eggs a day'
"A round of applause, then, to Reuters, who manged to take the typo to new levels today, with an online article about the genetics of honey bees which claimed that Queen Elizabeth lays up to 2,000 eggs a day.

Somehow, every time they meant to refer to the queen bee, the phrase 'Queen Elizabeth' was substituted instead.

This led to the article informing us that 'Queen Elizabeth has 10 times the lifespan of workers and lays up to 2,000 eggs a day.'"
