A whole mess of misspellings...


This picture comes to us from one of my favorite newly-discovered bloggers, J. Alfred Proofreader. I'm gonna ignore the fact that the person who wrote this steaming pile of poo clearly has never heard of capital letters. Or apostrophes. I'm just gonna focus on the spelling. Or the misspellings, as the case may be. I didn't even underline them all. My pen got tired, and my brain was quite close to exploding. This goober couldn't even spell Christmas correctly! But my favorite misspelling is scandle. I don't know why, but seeing scandal misspelled like that makes me giggle.

This dude also misspelled that Blagojevich dude's last name. If you find this sort of mistake amusing and want to see some other instances where Blagojevich's name has been butchered, make sure to visit J. Alfred Proofreader's site--he did an entire week-long feature on this!

Thanks, J. Alfred Proofreader, for sending in this picture!

They're also missing a space between the 'it,' and 'now' at the end. Is a scandle like a candle with an s?
I think I like 'chistmas' best. It's something a small child missing front teeth might say. Or some idiot online.

Haha! I was thinking "scandle" was a candle that you can wave over bar codes to scan items...

The difference is, when a toothless child says "Chistmas," it's cute and endearing...not so when it's an idiot online saying it! :)

We just call him Blago, to avoid having to remember the full spelling of his name.

Ooh, that's smart! :)
