For this, I deserve a free pizza

I found this Domino’s coupon in the newspaper last week. It contains not one, not two, but (drumroll, please) THREE errors!

Let’s break this down, shall we? Domino’s should contain an apostrophe. Pizzas must be borrowing said missing apostrophe, since it shouldn’t have one. And lastly, I don’t know what a viggie is, but it sounds like the dimwitted cousin of a veggie.

I’d like my free pizza now, please.

  1. And once again, some professional copy editor has reared his/her ugly head! I find the greatest source of incorrect usage, spelling, grammar, and punctuation to be the daily newspaper. Good catch on this one.

  2. Poor grammar bugs me to no end. I’m pretty sure it’s one of the reasons I decided I wanted to be an English teacher. Not only would I educate kids on proper grammar and proper English, but I love languages and English is on the top of my list.
    I loved this post–it was funny! You wouldn’t believe the amount of grammatical mistakes you can find in a published piece if you look really closely– it’s incredible.

  3. I don’t know if you consider it an error, but I feel there should be a comma between “Tuscan Salami” and “& Roasted Veggie”, merely to maintain consistency. Otherwise, given the trend of combining topping in that list, it sounds like it is going to be Tuscan Salami with Roasted Veggie. At least that’s the impression I get… Who decided to phase out the Oxford comma!?
