HAPPY BLACK FRIDAY FROM RED PEN, INC.

So this year I haven't decided whether or not I want to go out and brave the Black Friday sales. On the one hand, there are always some good deals. On the other hand, it's effin' cold out there, and I'm a scrawny little thing who gets cold easily. And I'm kind of afraid of the apostrophe catastrophes I might encounter at the stores...


This was taken at Macy's. When I took this picture, a few people were eyeing me up like I was either insane or retarded. Clearly they didn't care about crazy apostrophe mistakes on large signs in department stores...

But the malls aren't the only places to find apostrophe errors. If you like to shop online, beware--apostrophe errors are lurking at some of your favorite sites! The above error comes from the Bath and Body Works website, where evidently only one customer rates the products...



Shopping can be a stressful affair sometimes, so whether you've done your shopping in the mall or online, you should probably indulge in a nice, calming cup of tea afterwards. I have a feeling this place's tea is spiked with a shot of Engrish, though!

Thanks to PAT at FanIQ.com for this picture!

Happy shopping, everyone...and if you get any great Black Friday deals, tell me all about them in the Comments section below!

Oh, what a sad world we live in that those of us with a proper grasp of the language are looked at oddly for our knowledge. :)

I hear ya! That happens to me all the time. Sigh.

You just might have the classiest blog on the whole internets.

Ha! Classiest? If that's the case, then we're all doomed! :)
