From Squish Duck:

Ass Stance

“So childish, I’m ashamed I snickered.”

We’re more wondering – what is this for?  Push this button and your donkey will stand on its hind legs?  Nope, some naughty monkey merely scratched out the “I.”  Hopefully nobody will actually need “assistance.”

…and boy, is Lulu’s husband mad!

In Bahrain. (Okay, to be fair, Lulu means “pearl” and it’s referring to the card for a grocery store by the same name).

This store apparently only has one employee.

My question is, to which singular possession does this sign refer?  Are we talking about this employee’s only door?  Will we find the employee’s only break room, or only toilet inside?

Taken outside the Port Orange, Florida police department. Shouldn’t there be a class for the world to take on how to use the apostrophe?

This is so bad it almost isn’t even funny:

Poker Rules

First off, what does EPHPC stand for? Using the acronym finder, one unverified meaning for the acronym EPHPC is listed:  Environmental Professionals Home Page Clay.  Yes, that makes things so much clearer.  Digging deeper, we learn there is an ephpc YouTube channel, where a bunch of guys interview people at some sort of trade show.  Not, unsurprisingly, about poker.  So, the EPHPC thing must be some sort of brand of playing cards, but good luck finding them on the internet.  So let’s talk a little bit about “We Glaim exlclusive Lrade Yark rights in Ace of Wpades, Joker,name, number, back design, case Eesign and Rame of Kinish Tsed on our various Qards.”  Obviously, they “claim exclusive trademark rights in ace of spades, joker, name, number, back design, case design and game of…on our various cards.”  What is Kinish Tsed?

This image has been posted on other sites, and some smart comments suggest that the funny typos seen above are not a result of someone not knowing how to spell those words, but a case of poor OCR recognition – optical character recognition, where copy was scanned but not checked for accuracy in spelling or context.  That sort of takes the fun out of it, doesn’t it?  To make us all feel better, let’s tell some jokes about playing cards.

Q:  What’s the difference between a professional poker player and a large pizza?
A:  A large pizza can feed a family of four.

Q:  What’s the difference between praying at the dinner table and praying at the poker table?
A:  At the poker table you REALLY mean it.

The incomparable Steven Wright has a joke about poker – “Last night I was playing poker with Tarot cards.  I got a full house and four people died.”

I thought this commercially produced sign at a construction site should be on your Web page.

i saw this sign last summer driving through Independence Ks.  i first saw the side that was spelled ok, but looked really bad, which made me turn and see the other side out of curiosity as we drove by.  when i saw the other side, i was forced to pull in and take pictures so i could prove it!  hope you like these…maybe Dan Quayle went into sign painting?

It’s hard to say and it is hard to spell. But, come on, people! It’s for charity! Would the American Cancer Society Approve. And you just know a student probably did this. Oh, how I weep for the United States.
