Catching Up

Life happens, you pay taxes, and then you die.

I just rediscovered the joy I used to get while posting here, so I'm back and ready to catch up. So I present a few gems that have been holed up in my computer for a while, waiting for their turn in the spotlight.

As usual, when you use the incorrect word, your meaning is lost. Although, sadly, probably not lost on most people these days, as most won't notice the error. Obviously this real estate listing has something to do with fonts:

I don't remember where this came from, and I also don't remember whether or not I tried the chilli lotto:

Most instructions seem to be written in a foreign country, so this is not an unusual mistake to see. But they are always funny. Make your way out the door, NOW! The inflatable is loosing air!

This is truly sad. Obviously this car belongs to a REALTOR. And just as obviously, this REALTOR is STUPID. There is no excuse for this.

Taken from a menu at a very nice dinner one night. I can report that the Rhubarb Pie was delicious. No barbs at all, thank goodness.

Our local pest control (a necessity in the South) sent this lovely reminder about bed bugs. Hopefully they are better at pest control than they are with spelling. Although I have to agree that hosting guests could be travailing in some ways.

That's all for now. I promise to keep my eyes open and report on more when I find them. Which isn't too hard these days. Have some examples that drive you crazy? Send them on to me and I'll gladly post them.

The Truck of The Car

On a more recent note, this is from the debacle called the Casey Anthony Trial - better known as OJ #2 Trial. The media is so bent on being the first to show this and that and to overdramatize every bit of information that they forget to check what they've written. Or they are too dumb to even notice that something's wrong.

I do remember way back when there was a car/truck vehicle that featured the front of a sedan and the back was a sort of pick-up truck. Truly ugly. Maybe that's what Casey was driving. If so, I stand corrected and there is nothing to see here. Move along.

(The DirecTV note is so that I can call them each and every time I have an issue - their phone number is on the note - which is often. And I will continue to harass them with calls until they agree to replace my bad DVR. So there.)

Missississippissip - Aw Forget It.

Wondering if the headline was actually written by someone from Mississippi. That would be SO perfect!

This Keeps Up and They'll Soon Be Endangered

This is hard to see, but a classic moose/mousse typo. From a very nice restaurant menu. Wonder if Natasha and Boris are behind this?

News Channels Run By Spelling (Oxy)Morons?

I haven't been able to figure out exactly what they're trying to say here. Either it's gotten extremely windy across the midwest, or air travel just got a little dicier.

Either way it's spelled wrong. Again, this is from a national 24 hour news channel. Do they not even care anymore?

And this is why South Carolina has been stereotyped:

This is from a local news channel. Perhaps their budget issues have caused them to cut back on education?

I'm From Calio - You Know - As In Caliofornia

Haha! This is from a morning news show. We can take comfort in the fact that the hand is actually pointing out the error. ("Stupid interns! I would like everyone to know that I had NOTHING to do with this!")

Oh, OK, it's Good Morning America. Get your sh** together GMA!

Alumni Won't Be Happy Coming Home To This

It's so sad to keep getting these images from college campuses. Thanks again to Kristilyn again for this one.
Perhaps we should go with the idea that the local businesses aren't run by students or graduates of the university. Sigh.
