MISSPELLING MONDAY for February 16, 2009


Monday morning, back to the daily grind...ugh. But here's a fabulous Misspelling Monday post to make you giggle as you sit at your desk, sipping your coffee, trying to wake up for the work week...

This mistake was sent in by BECKY, the reigning queen of proper apostrophization. She says: I actually laughed out loud on the "T" this morning when I saw this misspelling of "money." I picture Jerry Maguire going into an art museum and yelling, "Show me the MONET!" Or how about this -- "I get the *impression* that the Metro needs a new copyeditor." The possibilities for puns are endless...

Love it! Thanks, BECKY, for sharing this amusing mistake! If you haven't checked out BECKY's fabulous blog, Apostrophe Catastrophes, you really should. Like, now. Go!

I thought so, too! LOL.

Thanks. ;)

Good post...nothing like a nice little morning L-O-L to start my day. Of course, also not being at work contributes greatly as well. Very clever puns on Becky's part.

I'm SO jealous you're not at work! It's so much more fun to LOL at home than at work...

Don't be bitching about having to work. After being laid off for so long I can hardly wait until I Van Gogh back to work.

"Watch were you're going, you almost stepped on that little girls Dali."

"Hey, at least I didn't Leonardo against that Da Vinci."

"I don't know dude, she's been around the block a few times. Lotta guys have been in her Warhole."

"I can't believe how much it cost for a funeral, and dad didn't have any insurance."

It was the same story with our dad so we split it. Jack and I paid for the headstone and my brother and his wife paid for the Hirst.

"Honey, I wish you'd told me we were having steak. Now I have to go all the way back upstairs and get Matisse."

----------------------------------------------------------------

"Hey bro. How'd your date with that chick from accounting go? Did she Lichtenstien?"

"Lichtenstien... Hell, she licked everything."

Cezanne. Cezoff.

Too funny, Brian! Thanks for making me laugh. (Now my co-workers probably think I'm nuts for having random giggle fits. Oh well.)

Bridgete said...

Ha! When was this? I must have missed the Metro that day.

ChicagoLady said...

Brian definitely has too much free time on his hands.

Total Jerry MaGuire moment!

Becky said...

Thanks for the shoutouts! Not to make you jealous, but I have the day off from work today. I am still in my pajamas. It's gorgeous outide, though, so I might have to get dressed and go running or something.

Becky said...

Wow, Brian is very punny today. :)

Becky said...

@ Bridgete: It was one day last week. I can't remember which day. Do you read the Boston Metro?

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ Bridgete: I think Becky sent this to me this past Friday, so perhaps that was the day the mistake was published. :)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ ChicagoLady: I'm sooooo jealous of Brian's time. If I had that kind of time, my novel would be done by now and I wouldn't have to be scrambling to write it every night after coming home from the J-O-B. Sigh.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ Becky: You're quite welcome! :) And I'm jealous of your day off, too... Have fun running! Enjoy some sunshine for me!

Bridgete said...

@Becky Sometimes I grab it for something to read on the T. If I don't have a book with me.
