For Sale?

NYC vulture Cyndi captured this intriguing use of spacing and punctuation while visiting a shop in the Pacific Northwest:

More contemplating than admonishing, it's no wonder this sign is posted beneath a ponderous chocolate likeness!

I think I'm gonna Ralph.


...there's no apostrophe in...

... ya morons.

They must be punctuation-happy because the hyphen in "50-Years" is also completely useless. Also, the whole thing reads like a ten year-old's book report.

We are but lowly bloggers. You write for a living. You bring shame to KABC-TV, ABC News, The Walt Disney Company, Kroger, and the late George and Walter Ralphs.

(Furthermore, dear readers, aren't you amazed at how I managed to acquire this article from the future in order to post it here on July 19th?!)

Urination Station

Okay, the glaring error here - as echoed in supermarkets across the country - is "less" rather than "fewer."

The bigger issue, though? It was posted in one of these restaurants above a urinal in the men's room. Gross!

Paris or Burbank?

Milles, we're told, means thousand in French. This lube center in Burbank must offer countless service options!

Nina's Grocerie's Store's

What is it about apostrophes? Correct usage of the little buggers manages to elude what seems like a majority of English speaking people.

Let's face it - this sign (spotted in Philadelphia by Liza) has a lot working against it: a horribly unnecessary apostrophe, a street address that's nearly falling off, and who knows what further infringement is hiding behind the slapped-on "sundries"?!
