so many errors, so little time

I felt compelled to submit the attached image from some actual printed promotional material. Five examples of poor grammar / command of English, one typographical error, and a stray Grocer’s apostrophe! All of this in a few short statements, like it had never been through any proof reading stage.

Sorry We Closed McDonald’s Sign 1

sorry-we-closed-sign

Couldn’t they have used the apostrophe from McDonald’s and the “r” and the “e” from “drive-thru” to make a correct sentence?

I think the big dirt lot would have been a clue this restaurant was closed without the poorly written sign.

Another misuse of apostrophes. The poor thing needs to be put out of its misery, at least on this van.

Because once just wasn’t enough 2

What makes this such an amazing picture is that not only is their error posted once in huge bold letters, but it is everywhere else! How was this possible? They couldn’t even reach an agreement either, what with pie’s beingĀ possessiveĀ and burgers being pluralized. Again, the repetitive nature of this picture just screams out “Look! We’re incorrect grammar and we’re here forever!”

On a second thought, who thought pies and burgers?

Smile Your On Camera – No Apostrophe 1

Smile Your On Camera - No Apostrophe

This could be read two ways and both ways are still wrong.

  1. Smile. Your own camera <– Could be a good sales tactic for selling camera.
  2. Smile, You’re On Camera <– This lets you know that customers are being watched, so no shoplifting!

I’m going to go with option number two. Maybe somebody stole the apostrophe while they were changing the film in camera?

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?

Can’t we just say we give up and let people use apostrophes however they wish. Or should I say let them use apostrophe’s however they wish.

Employee's Must Wash There Hands

Employee’s Must wash there hands before returning to work!

Wow, a double score found at a Burger King in Florida. We get the wrong use for an apostrophe and the wrong “there”.

Jack of all traits

Where do I begin with this one?

Jack of all traits… traits? Is that how the saying goes?

“Though I cant hang any fancy diploma on my wall…” or even hang a fancy apostrophe on a contraction…

Can a person even be a self-proclaimed muse? My brain hurts just thinking about that one.

There are lots more. You can find the site here: http://www.jaqx.net/
