A not-so-hot grammar mistake.


I'm so excited that I've gotten my first Red Pen, Inc. submission from Hawaii! How cool!

Call me crazy, but you'd think that if this bar's slogan stated that they're the "Volcano's Hot Spot," you'd think they'd have made an effort beforehand to make sure that the slogan was grammatically correct. Or not... SARA K. writes: "Believe it or not, their first sign read 'Volcanos' Hot Spot.' I guess somebody complained and they 'corrected' it." Apparently these guys just can't get it right no matter how many times they try...

Thanks to SARA K. for sending in this one!

Making an ignorant mistake on a bar sign is no big deal, but realizing it's wrong and writing it up incorrectly AGAIN? Wow.

I'm hoping that maybe, just maybe, these guys kept screwing up this sign not because they're just that retarded, but because they were drunk when they made it (since they work at a bar, I don't think this is totally outside the realm of possibility). There are definitely some people whose grammar doesn't suffer much, if at all, when they drink, but I'm betting these sign creators don't fall into that category. :)

Y'know, I'm not even sure they realized it was wrong; the sign was just outdated, and they changed it. Also, in case it's not obvious, Volcano is the name of the town.
