Grammar Giggles – Splash ‘N Dash

I made my friend Tara turn around during our trip to Seattle so I could get a picture of this one!  The difference between Your and You are (You’re) is important!  This would be so much funnier if it was correct!

Grammar Giggles – Legal Document

A real example of how important proofreading is.  This was sent to me by a friend who caught it before the document left her office, but both she and her boss missed it in the first few rounds.  This is a mistake I make a lot.  Can you find the error?

Grammar Giggles – The Biebs

I was originally interested in this Justin Bieber story days ago just because I was actually there (and didn’t realize that’s what was happening).  But today’s headline teaser … again … caught my attention for a different reason.  Seriously local Fox News.  “Loosing his lunch”?  As opposed to “tighting his lunch”?  Losing and Loosing are different — learn it!

Grammar Giggles – Apostrophes

Since the subject was apostrophes this week (or, more appropriately, apostrophe fails), I thought it was timely to share this picture taken and shared by Daddy Doin’ Work, a page I follow on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/daddydoinwork) by a guy who talks about his first time daddy experiences and is hard at work achieving happy.  DDW gave me permission to share this with you.  I guess if you think an apostrophe belongs, put it everywhere you can — except where it really belongs!

Grammar Giggles – Nail’s

Time for a grammar giggle.  I took this picture at a local grocery store shopping center.  I’ve passed it multiple times and I notice it every time.  Apparently, the Club belongs to the Nail … or the owner’s name is Nail … or they don’t understand possessives.

Please share pictures of your own “grammar giggles” so we can all enjoy them.  Email your favorites to proofthatblog@gmail.com.
