TO/TOO/TWO TUESDAY for July 28, 2009

Hmmm. I'm torn between letting out the biggest *sigh* ever or the loudest scream I can manage. This is truly appalling:


I'm glad that somebody corrected this sign in the store. Perhaps if people see the corrected sign, they'll realize it might not be such a good idea to buy the product--after all, if its marketing materials are this bad, there's a good chance that the software itself might be as bad or worse. Yikes!

Thanks to AJ and LadyStyx for finding this picture on FAILblog and sending it to me!

This makes me want to cry. Ugh.

Okay, "much" not being in there, that's forgivable; there are differences between proper English and advertising copy.

"Their" though? Ouch.

@ Bridgete: It makes me wanna cry/scream/sigh. Repeatedly.

@ EVula: I agree! The missing "much" doesn't really bother me in this context, but that homonym error is pathetic.

Gotta love when the Fail-mail shows up in the inbox!

The FAIL-mail rocks my socks off!

OK, I was wearing stilettos,and therefore I wasn't wearing socks, but still. You get the point. :) FAIL-mail = awesome!

I never trusted those Power Puff Girls...

Definitely an advertising fail. Although I probably would trust this software slightly more than a learning center named Kumon Kids.....Jeeesuss.
