Keeping up with the grammar screw-ups...

Trouble comes in threes. Kardashian sisters also come in threes. And today I present to you three recent Kardashian-related grammar/spelling snafus...

All of the Kardashian sisters but Kim have really screwily-spelled names. Here, somebody screws up the spelling of Kourtney's name even more...


I hate looking at the name Khloe because it totally looks misspelled even though, in this case, it isn't. Sigh. But this picture's not error-free, either...it's got a homonym error! (Also--is it just me, or does the sister on the left look totally fug?)



Last but not least is an error that MAGGIE found for us... (Thanks, Maggie, for spotting this one...)

Ugh, a whose/who's error! The writer should really have known better...

On a related note, I hope that when Kourtney pops out her spawn, she does not follow family tradition and instead names the child something that doesn't look like an annoying misspelling at first glance.

Hey at least the name spelling error is appropriate. A Korny Kardashian.... :)

Hahaha! So true! :)

A magnificent Kardashian trifecta of errors.

Maybe the goal with their names is that no one knows what is right or what is wrong?

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Ha! Good thought, David. It wouldn't surprise me if the rationale was something like, "If we make sure it begins with a K, and its spelling looks sorta screwy, then we're probably spelling it right..."

Ugh...this family makes me angry!

The mother's name is Kris, so I'm sure she had a say in naming all of her krappy offspring. ;)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

"Krappy"...I love it! :D

"...since we broken up"???

I'm SO glad I don't keep up with the Kardashians!

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Ha! Same here, ChicagoLady! :)

Maybe the next unfortunate addition to the Kardashian clan will be Kleyopotrra....the only thing more awful than that is trying to figure out why anyone would want to watch a reality show starring these silly bitches...

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

LOL! Yeah, I don't really understand what's to like about that show... There aren't any baseball players or vampires on that show, so how can it possibly be any good? ;)
