I saw this ad at the grocery store today, but it’s missing something. Could it…could it be the rest of the letters in “Pepperidge”?
Sheesh! First “Wensday,” now this? (By the way, The Quarter Barrel updated the other side of their sign and they STILL spelled “Wednesday” wrong). What’s with all the shortcuts in the English language lately?
The word “rotisserie” already has French roots, so I’ll never know why Walmart felt the need to make it sound so extra-French. Just because you have low prices doesn’t mean you can spell things any way you please!
I’d like to start this post off by saying I hope everyone had a fantastic Mother’s Day. I spent mine eating my body weight in fattening food and giving bunny ears to my mom in a sentimental mother-daughter photo shoot.
Mother’s Day just wouldn’t be complete without some bad grammar, so here’s an ad I found that is missing–count them–FOUR apostrophes:
This is just one picture, but the whole pamphlet was FULL of unnecessary apostrophes. Punctuation abuse is one of my biggest grammar-related pet peeves, so I had to post this if only to let off some steam. Since the picture is so busy, I’ll save you some trouble and point out that the offending words are “racer’s” and “toddler’s.”
Dollar stores have some great bargains, but I was much more excited to stumble across these signs:
Sorry for the blurriness. (I’ll save you the headache: it reads, “Please not opened drinks or food in the store please thank you.”) I won’t even explain the various problems with this sign; if you can’t figure out what’s wrong with it, this whole blog is probably going to confuse the snot out of you.
The dollar store sells iodized salt, but they’d like you to believe it’s iodizes salt.
