TO/TOO/TWO TUESDAY for January 6, 2009


OTHER MOTHER spotted this little gem from our friends at AO-Hell. The affect/effect mistake is one of my pet peeves because this should be a really tough thing to screw up. One's a noun and one's a verb, and yet people still find ways to confuse the two. This sort of ignorance never fails to amaze me. And by "amaze me", I mean "piss me off".

Thanks to OTHER MOTHER for spotting this one!

Maybe the shopping scam will 'bring into existence' your buys (whatever that means) - effect is a verb too, you know.

True--I forgot that "effect" can also be a verb. But here, it's still the wrong word. Damn those AO-Hellraisers! They're not so good with their homonyms...
