No matter how bastardized the English language becomes in the age of the internet, there will always be a place for spelling and grammar. After all, a simple comma can make the difference between “Let’s eat, grandpa” and “Let’s eat grandpa.” And basic spelling errors or missed letters can completely change the meaning of a sentence. Alas, these photos prove that not everyone has a perfect grasp on grammar.
This is just all over the place, if you’ll forgive the horrible visual that conjures up alongside the error in this sign. Yes, not only is that definitely not how you spell “incompetent,” but this notice is also effectively demanding its customers apologize to it. Great job, McDonald’s.
This sure seems like a juice brand you can trust. Or should that be, these seem like three juice brands you can trust? After all, they may be completely different companies that just happen to have used very similar logos. Surely nobody can mess up this badly, right?
Spelling is never more important than when writing about spelling. You’d think, then, that the editor would have quadruple-checked this story before it went to print. Either way, we know one writer who definitely isn’t going to be up for that coveted trophy.
Is it just us, or is that sign giving everyone permission to park illegally? Sometimes, terrible spelling and grammar can just be amusing – but in instances such as this one, it can lead to disastrous consequences. After all, disputes between the land owners and would-be illegal parkers could get hairy.
School may be simple for kids, but it was apparently difficult for the producers of this news segment. Indeed, the irony here is absolutely delicious, though it does nothing for the poor newscaster’s reputation, even if she isn’t the one responsible for the gaffe.
If you didn’t know any better, you might be worried about cannibals operating in the vicinity of this sign. Fortunately, most of us are savvy enough to realize that these are two separate warnings for people eating, and children, in the area. But that doesn’t make it any less hilarious.
Either these kids have done this intentionally to a teacher they dislike, crushing the poor educator’s willpower just that little bit further, or they’re really not a great teacher after all. Indeed, the difference between your and you’re is basically English 101.
Imagine trying to close down your computer for the day and getting this message. Depending on how wary of artificial intelligence you are, you’d likely either panic and throw your laptop in the bin, or just add another entry to your list of ongoing existential crises. Because everyone else has those too, right?
Clearly, this store isn’t as impressed with Ugg boots as everybody else was in the early 2000s. Either that, or whoever was behind this sign was unable to type the same letter twice, instead accidentally hitting the “h” key, despite their finger already being on the “g” key. And really, which of those scenarios is more likely?
Who’s in the mood for some tasty dognuts? That would be a grand total of zero people, we imagine. Yeah, we’ve never seen a more disastrous misspelling of “donuts” than this. Even if you go for the proper dictionary spelling, “doughnuts,” there are some really essential letters missed out here.
Hey, at least they’re honest enough to come out and admit their mistake. And then, rather than continue to charge full price for it, slap on a discount to make amends. Really, anyone with equally poor attention to their spelling could be coming away with a great bargain here.
Well, those sure are some high standards. Let’s just hope the Commission holds all its pupils to the same lofty ideals. After all, if that’s the case, we can be sure that future generations have nothing to worry about. Their education, clearly, is in safe hands.
Wow, this actually seems like a pretty good deal. After all, usually the person getting towed has to pay up, rather than get paid. Yes, it’s surprising how much difference one tiny, missed “e” can make. But in this case, it makes absolutely all the difference.
Who knew Adolf Hitler was so great at baseball that his name has become synonymous with sporting achievements? Well, nobody, because he wasn’t. This is just one of the most unfortunate typos of all time. Really, we can’t believe nobody caught this before it went to print.
On one hand, this looks like the worst advertisement of all time. But on the other, perhaps it’s actually a clever ploy to reach people whose English isn’t exactly perfect. After all, it may make the most sense to them. Except for the bit about a 15-minute day. Yeah, we’ve no idea what’s going on there.
That sounds a bit ominous. Is it trying to insinuate that the meds are going to kill you? Or are they just to ease the passing for a terminal patient? Either way, based on the fact it’s probably supposed to say “bed,” we imagine the recipient was more than a little shocked at first.
We guess this was probably meant to say “Satan.” Instead, it actually comes across as an invite to curl up in some lovely satin sheets. To be fair, religion has never sounded more comfortable, so it’s still doing its job – even if it’s not in the way intended.
Scuba divers aren’t generally known for their diva-like tendencies, but we guess this guy must be the exception to the rule. Either that, or the producer responsible for this caption has made a monumental mistake. Yeah, it’s probably the second one…
To be fair, the wait staff working the breakfast shift probably deserve a shout-out. But we don’t think that’s what Days Inn was going for when it put up this sign. Maybe the line break should have come in between the two statements, rather than before them?
Well, if there’s one way to put people off shoplifting, this is it. Indeed, being forced into prostitution sure seems like a far more severe punishment than a slap on the wrist, a fine or even jail time. Clearly, this shop has had a real issue with thieves, and this is their solution.
