odd error at VT

Today's Visual Thesaurus Word of the Day is collaborate, about which they say:
The pronunciation of this word and also of its cousin, elaborate, might through you off the scent of their relationship to labor -- but not if you have your eyes open!
That through is an odd error, because although it eye-rhymes with though, it doesn't rhyme at all with throw.

(not bothering with the link because they caught it on the website, and it's not free anyway.)
