Wordless Wednesday – A flower grows in Brooklyn

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

. . . . .

Stop by every 1st and 3rd Wednesday for a peek into the world of spelling, punctuation, or grammar gone wrong!

LOL! Makes you really want to buy those flowers, huh?

I really and truly laughed out loud at this sign, as I do when I see most of your Bad Signage posts. Without the commentary, I might have only laughed inside my head.

This one I owe to my daughter Janel, dry and witty as she is. She will be helping with Wordless Wednesdays, and her commentary is usually way funnier than mine! LOL!

This doesn’t sound like it should have come from a New Yorker. It smacks of a backwoods redneck! Believe me, I should know, hailing from Southeast Texas.

My stepdad is from Brooklyn. If he were using the word in a sentence, he’d say, “Is that a hydranger in front of your house?”

But I can totally hear that drawlin’ hah-drain-ger too! Thanks for the chuckle, Leanne!
