Today I am celebrating my many freedoms as a citizen of the United States of America. Included in these freedoms is my right to criticize poor grammar. After all, Independence Day is more than history, stars and stripes, and colorful explosives; it’s also a day that has not failed to provide me with some good blogging material for three years in a row. (See: 2010 and 2011).
This year, my 4th of July post comes to you courtesy of a local veterinary clinic.
I passed this sign today while I was driving and did a U-turn so I could pull over and take a picture (contrary to what I implied in my last post, I do not photograph anything while the car is moving). Once I’d turned around, I saw that the other side of the sign contained a second grammar error. Oh happy day!
Stipe (n.): a stalk in plants that bears reproductive structures. Oh yes, I've always found those very patriotic.
Sorry, but I'll be too busy having a great FOURTH of July.
