Last one for now...

I have nothing against the Episcopalians. I was just trying to find out why they wouldn't allow the Wedding March (you know, "here comes the bride...") to be played at weddings. So, I did a google search and ended up at the website of some little church in New England. I got my answer, but I also found a new typo every time I looked at the site. I was so distracted by the errors, I almost forgot why I was looking at that site in the first place. Oh yeah, no secular music in the church. Okay.

Grab bag.

Liz found this one. It's either request-like, or they just didn't want to attribute it to someone.

Holly found this one. Then vs. than. You may think you sound like a dufus, but really, read it out loud before you publish it and everybody sees that you're a dufus.

Zeke found this one. Another troubled menu, or not, this beef was pretty well grounded. (Can I just say, mmm, tripe! The pizza toppings in the last post also included soy chunks. Equally appetizing.)

Possesive food.

So when did food start owning stuff?

Turkey's. Ugh. I'll tell you who the turkeys are...

So, how come the peperoncinis and anchovies are the only topping in the list to get apostrophes? Red onions somehow don't qualify? I really want to know what goes through a person's head when he or she decides to put an apostrophe in a plural word.

Brought to you by the same folks who bring us those hilarious captioned kittehs. Love them. Here are two pics that deserve to be re-posted here.

Missing letters, etc.

How do typos happen on 100-year old hand-drawn blueprints? (It's a little hard to read; it says "West Elevtion.")

Yeah, so the word contains all five vowels. It's still a good idea to get them in the right order.

The part that hurts most about this one is that I know the folks that designed the poster.

Zeke found this one on the UC Santa Cruz campus. No spelling majors apparently.

I found this on the Web after my curiosity got the better of me. Some nut with a hand-painted sign on one of the major streets in town urged people to look up the alternative presidential candidates. I did, and found that Chuck Baldwin and his peeps can't proofread, nor can they design attractive websites.

Another Zeke find... he's a big mushroom fan, so I'm sure this one jumped right out at him.

This one was hiding in plain sight at Mike's office. He said he had passed it by for years before a visitor noticed it and drew it to his attention.

And the coup de grace: a poster by "Accurate Productions." Accurate, my a$$. Comunity. Securety. Latonville. Willets. Gaberville. And that's just the bottom half.

2009. Now with more blog posts.

The holidays are over, and I don't have to make any more Christmas presents! No more excuses, here's a post or two.

People do actually read my blog! For some reason, I had things set up so that I wasn't receiving e-mail notifications when people left comments. That was not a good idea. I fixed it though, and may feel obligated to post more often now that I know you're out there.

I have a pretty good sized backlog of stuff to post... I need to put all of my crafting on hold and get back to blogging. (See for some of my other adventures.)

Here's a good one from the mega-post to come. I nearly gave my husband whiplash when I slammed on the brakes and pulled over to snap a photo of this sign.
