“Speed is subsittute fo accurancy”

‚ÄúSpeed is subsittute fo accurancy” ("speed is a/no substitute for accuracy” intentionally misspelled) is a jocular misspelling showing that, indeed, speed is no substitute for accuracy. “Speed is n substitue fo accurancy” has been cited in print since at least 1993 and is of unknown authorship.
