Trouble in the cone zone

What’s wrong with this picture?

  1. The sign makers misspelled “within.”
  2. They capitalized the “P” in “Prohibited.”
  3. Next, “WAIT CONES” is unnecessarily shouted out in all caps.
  4. Afterward, we find the appalling misspelling of the word “enforced.”
  5. Finally, from a purely logical perspective, shouldn’t they be prohibiting parking in areas with wait cones, not in areas with no wait cones?

Why didn’t I think of this?

I can’t tell you how often I come across grammar and punctuation errors on flyers, store signs, marquees, banners, church bulletins, menus—which is why I never run out of material for Wordless Wednesday!  A few gems:

  • Secretary’s Love Our Cakes! (spotted at DQ)
  • Education at It’s Best! (ad for North Carolina A&T State Univ.)
  • There back – Buffalo nuggets $2.99 (sign at Popeye’s Chicken & Biscuits)

So imagine my joy at discovering that the Grammar Nerd Corrective Label Pack is now available as a peel-and-stick remedy for grammar faux pas everywhere.  This cracked me up!

I’m pathetic, I know. Maybe I should buy myself one of these T-shirts.

No smoking food

That’s right, people!  Take your smoking food, your drinks photography, and your pets elsewhere!

Wordless Wednesday – A flower grows in Brooklyn

This is what happens when poor spelling collides with a New York accent.

Spelling suop

If you’re like me, the atrocious spelling in this ad might take a few seconds to fully sink in.  First I noticed the obviously misspelled “suop,” then “shtimp,” then “lobter,” then… yikes!  There are only two properly spelled words in the whole ad!  Perhaps they actually serve their ramen with the meat of the dread “Lobter-Beef-Shtimp” monster along with some “chiken,” but I doubt it.

Please do not distrub

I find this sign rather distrubbing, don’t you?

Another apostrophe blunder

Yet another apostrophe catastrophe; that is, unless the company name is “Fight”—as in “Why don’t you give Fight’s Cold & Flu a try?”

Or not.

Will this madness never end?

How much is a silde?

Wow—free access to the sildes on Level 2.  Wonder what it normally costs?
