I wonder how much they wanted for the larger potatoes. I'm a fan of russets myself - it's a good thing - I couldn't afford those baby reds!
As Chris, who sent this to me, said - "At $2.99 each they had better be the best veggies I have ever tasted!" I'll say.

Oh my. Here's another one that is too much to show in a small photo - click on the picture to see a larger view.

I'm guessing that the create-a-card machine lacks spell check. Which must also be lacking in the worker bees in the photo store.
I'll admit, I make mistakes like this a lot. Even when writing longhand - which is really scary. But usually, when I proof what I've written, I catch the error. Ah, there's the rub. Proof our work must we to errors catch thee. (Sorry Yoda.) (And yes, I spelled it 'thee' on purpose - to rhyme - otherwise it would sound even more stupid than it already does.)

Not bad (although I would have stated it differently). I especially love the ironic background.
BUT - when you explore further into the Alabama road system, they like to remind you of their original statement. Keep Alabama beautiful - right? Wrong. Enter the bright individual who stamped a big OK on the final proof for these signs:
Um - what? Maybe Alabama has a super secret campaign to rename the state 'Alabama the Beautiful'? And maybe that new state is about to be purchased by another country? But how would littering affect the buyout? Hmmm.
No, I'm afraid it's just Alabama showing their ignorance. You can argue against the stereotypes all you want, Alabama the Beautiful, but it's not going to help having evidence like this every few miles across the state.
Bless their hearts. They just can't help it.
Thank you to Lauren, who is serving as a temporary scout (deep undercover) in Alabama (the beautiful).
I'm not partial to southern states - show me what you've got in your home state - except you northerners - I know you're all perfect ;-)
Note - I am not criticizing the owners of the wonderful home behind the sign above. I'm sure it's a wonderful home and in no way do I mean to trash them. It's just damn funny that their home appears behind the sign.
