Taking a little trip with the FAILboat...

Here's a little something different for you guys. These have nothing to do with bad grammar, but they're pretty funny anyway. :)

I was wandering around Target the other day and noticed a product label that looked pretty funny. I submitted it to FAILblog...I'm hoping they feature it on their site.


Look, it's a desperate ho...and it's even on sale!

And this one was spotted by STEVE. I know it's been about 3 weeks since the Super Bowl happened, but I'm sure that many of you at least remember which two teams were playing. It was the Steelers vs. the Cardinals--although you'd never know it by looking at this newspaper...


Unfortunately, the Eagles were not in the Super Bowl this time around. I guess this picture illustrates the danger of placing team-specific ads before said teams have actually made it into the Super Bowl...

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! I'll be back with more grammar snafus for you manana...

Weird part is, it isn't even a problem of posting early. The Eagles and the Cards met in the NFC championship - it would be impossible for them to play in the Super Bowl!

Dave said...

Haha Desperate Ho...it's sort of a fitting show related misspelling isn't it?

@ LadyStyx: Yeah, I got a good chuckle outta this one too... :)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ Michael: Wow, that's a really good point. You're totally right!

@ Dave: Hey, now! I like the Housewives. :) (Not as much as I like the Losties, though.)

It's amazing how someone can fail on something so simple.

Obviously it's "Desperate Hos'."

How do you screw up Desperate Hos'?

From b...

Never mind.

You have to let us know if it makes it as a fail post. LOL

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

I definitely will! :) Hasn't made it onto their site yet, though...

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Hmmm...Brian, what are the "Desperate Hos'" you mentioned (and apostrophized) possessing?

Do I even want to know?

Brian said...

Can you really have incorrect punctuation on something that isn't a real word?

I had to cheat on this one because no matter how many times I looked at it, "Hos" just didn't look right to me.

I kept getting pictures in my head of Hoss from the TV show Bonanza.

So nail me to a cross but there was no way I was going to bed with images of Dan Blocker in a thong doing a poll dance.

Excuses, excuses... :)
