No, that’s not a typo

This cliché should be used only when the preceding sentence contains no typo.

He spent $500 on the ticket. No, that’s not a typo. (Update: That should be $50.) He spent $50 on the ticket. No, that’s not a typo.

The spoken equivalent “You heard that right” should never be used, since the audience is made responsible for the communication.

— It was a show of lightning and thunder. You heard that right.

— What does a show of lighting and wonder have to do with our discussion of beauty in nature?
