In generaral need of spell check

In generaral, I hope his concrete work is better than his spelling.

And by the way—are you in the market for a new “dryway”?

Masters of punctuation

I am hoping “Everything Go” is a title or business, but I think the more likely explanation is yet another misused apostrophe by these great masters.

And is that supposed to be a “dot” com? Or maybe the “com” is in the middle of a giant “dot”? Punctuation isn’t supposed to be this complicated!

A man, a plan, and a Sharpie

If you follow this blog at all, you know how much I love to find a good typo: a misplaced apostrophe, crazy spelling error, or grammar faux pas. Just take a little stroll down Bad Signage Lane for some great examples of English language abuse.

So imagine my delight at discovering this little gem of an article: A Man, a Plan, and a Sharpie. I’ll admit that Jeff Deck actually did what I would LOVE to be able to do—correct mispunctuated or illogical signs. I’m just not as bold.

I applaud his gumption!

Thanks to my friend and fellow communications buff JoJo for the link.

Punctuation deliverys needed

Deliverys? Seriously?

The spelling is bad enough, but could you please deliver some punctuation marks? Just ring bell thanks. Or just ring. Bell thanks. Bell thanks kitchen? I’m so confused.

I’ll have the nuchos, please

I’ll have the nuchos, please.

On second thought, make that brusheta.

Oh, never mind. Just give me the chicken fingers and some french fried.

Translation error

Perhaps the Google translator is not the best source for public sign translations. Work in progress, execution in progress… it’s all the same, right?

The reality

Businessman typing

“You will be judged, for your entire life, on the basis of how well you write. If you write well, people will think you are smart. If you write poorly, they will think you are dumb. That is perhaps unfair, but it is the reality, and you might as well face it now.”

–Robert Pasnau

Street signs don’t have spell check

Does anyone else have the urge to pull out a bottle of white-out?
