One of my favorite sites is Cake Wrecks. I found this on that page and am sharing it here. Spelling matters! Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
While I understand that some cities are difficult to pronounce and/or to spell, Tucson is the second largest populated city in Arizona, so our Phoenix news station should certainly know how to spell it. Pronounced “two saun,” if someone has problems remembering how to spell it, you could pronounce it “tuck sun” (but only in your head please) to help spell it right.
I saw this goof in a Walgreen’s recently. This is an example of a product that has been around long enough that retailers should have no problem spelling it.
It just isn’t Valentine’s Day without a couple of Grammar Giggles.
I pulled this out of my mailbox this weekend and noticed three errors before I even got back to my house. When the part of an advertisement intended to catch your eye has a glaring error, it really makes the company look bad. While they were consistent with their mistake, there was another anonymous placement of a comma.
I recently went to a painting party. I had a great time and ended up with a beautiful picture, which I’m still not convinced I actually painted. While on a break, I noticed their scrolling information about future classes on monitors throughout the facility. I saw these two errors. Even if your business is not grammar, you have people reading everything you have there and, perhaps, making judgments about your business based on that. A review of these slides should have caught the mistakes.
I saw this on a news story last week. The name of the location they are talking about is Bearizona, but that sure got butchered in this story.
I’m hoping this is his last name and not the grammar disaster it appears to be.
I have seen this sign every day for several weeks at a local car wash but had the opportunity at a stoplight to snap a quick (although nowhere near professional) picture. Yes, this sign–misspelled “holiday” and all–has been up for weeks.
I saw this notification on my phone while traveling recently during the “bushy” holiday season.
