Grammar Giggle – We Got Tatoos!

I saw this sign at a charity walk I participated in. While I hesitate to use it because (a) it was a charity thing and (b) a child could have prepared the sign since the charity was geared to children, I decided to use it anyway as a teaching tool–and TWO mistakes in the same sign cannot possibly get by without becoming a Grammar Giggle. Not only is “tatoo” misspelled (it should be “tattoo”), but “We got cute ones” should be “We have got cute ones” or “We‘ve got cute ones.” I’m sure it was probably an early morning not enough coffee thing, but it is incorrect and is a bad example–particularly when it is an event geared toward children.
