Over the weekend I was watching the very end of Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights while I was waiting for West Side Story to start. I don’t typically watch movie credits but happened to catch this as it was scrolling by:
And since I’m not involved in the movie industry, I even Googled that position to make sure it wasn’t a real thing. It isn’t.
I may have to start paying more attention to movie credits. They do have some very unusual titles there and apparently, they don’t think anyone reads them.
A Proof That reader sent this to me. They got it right in one place, wrong in two places, and we should take bets on how the one behind her is spelled. It really doesn’t take long to take a second look at something and will make you look better in the long run. Slow down and check spelling.
A lot of high schools are turning to social media to showcase their 2020 graduating class since they are foregoing the traditional graduation ceremony. I am super proud of my grandson and super disappointed that he doesn’t get the pomp and circumstance of graduation but was happy that his school put together a slideshow of all the seniors. They had special recognition for the Valedictorian, Salutatorian, and the male and female Athletes of the Year, EXCEPT while they spelled the hard ones right, they misspelled Athletes of the Year as “Atheletes of the Year.” I know that is how some people pronounce it, but it is not correct. Oh, and my smart and handsome grandson is the male ATHLETE of the Year!
A recent online news story caught my eye. Although “fentanyl” is spelled correctly in the first paragraph, the spelling in the quote from our Pinal County Sheriff is misspelled. I highly doubt Sheriff Lamb mispronounced it, so I’m thinking the news outlet misspelled it.
More material from “Breaking News” stories from my local news station. When you’re talking about something that is very different from something else, it should be in stark contrast to. They just got that all wrong and it was how the story started.
In celebration of my wedding anniversary today, I found this gem on the internet. It was one of many examples of cake decorators who get the instructions wrong or just plain can’t spell or, worse yet, both!
