The death of former U.K. Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher led one anti-Thatcher site to ask its fans to tweet about the ways they'd celebrate, using the hashtag #nowthatchersdead. Only one problem: Some Twitter users read the tag not as "Now Thatcher's Dead" but rather as "Now That Cher's Dead." The resultant outburst of mourning for the singer led comedian Ricky Gervais to intervene with a tweet telling Cher's fans that their idol was still alive and kicking.
