Anyone want to buy a vowel?

Hoping someone will buy that extra “e” so we can fix this thing.

Household Tip #47: Wash in coleslaw

Lately, I’ve seen lots of tips for using common household products such as baking soda, car wax, baby oil, and dryer sheets. Vinegar makes a great window cleaner. Mayonnaise can remove water rings from furniture. But I’ll admit it never occurred to me to use coleslaw as a laundry aid. So glad I saw this “qualifcation”!

Awsome decorating

Unfortunately, your spelling is not! Thanks!

[And perhaps it's just me, but $1.00 off  just isn't going to cut it. As a matter of fact, you may not be able to GIVE this baby away.]

On being a “women”

If they think being a “women” is expensive, wait till they have to have 5000 new licence-plate frames printed!

(Thanks to my friend Courtney for snapping a photo of this gem.)

Where’s the beaf?

On a recent trip to the UK and Belgium to visit our son and daughter-in-law, I came across some nifty signs for Wordless Wednesday’s “Bad Signage” posts. Really, I do understand that translation from one language to another can be challenging, but an apostrophe is an apostrophe. Plus, some of these are just too humorous to pass up!

Before we head across the English Channel to the Continent, let’s start off with a poster spotted in a British restaurant.

“Excuse me, waiter?”
“Yes?”
“I’d like to order an apostrophe.”

Next stop: The train station in Brussels. I’m sure they meant “Scarpino Bag’s Kiosk,” but evidently the signmaker ran out of room.

And continuing on to Bruges, here’s another apostrophe alert at a sidewalk cafe . . .

Here’s some spelling whimsy on a Bruges side street:

Where’s the beef? Apparently, once it’s been “sauted” it turns into “beaf.”

And finally, the pièce de résistance . . .

I’m cuckoo for coockies . . . um, cookies . . . any time. However, I have to tell you that the chocolates and baked goods in Belgium are exquisite—regardless of translations or misspellings. We enjoyed a wonderful visit with our kids, met many lovely people, and had a fantastic time eating our way through two beautiful countries.

Sping is here!

This bunny just doesn’t seem to have that sping in his step anymore. I think he needs to buy an “R.”

Homophones at risk

Another batch of homophone fails. Read at “you’re” own risk.

 

sorry lincoln

But apparently it has no trouble “excepting” multiple exclamation points!!!!!!!!

…as is the sign.
