MISSPELLING MONDAY for August 24, 2009

Yeah, so I'm a little late with today's post. That's because I'm still tired/reeling from yesterday's crazy/amazing baseball game--you know, the one with the game-ending unassisted triple play? I was there to see it. (It was my second Phillies game of the weekend...thankfully, Sunday's exciting win was a lot more fun than Friday's not-so-exciting loss.) And then after the game, I tired myself out by wandering New York City...and even after a good night's sleep, my legs are still sore. And so, somehow, is my brain, although I'm going to blame that on being back at work on a Monday morning.

Anyway, for today's post, I have not one but three amusing misspellings for you...

This one's from
LadyStyx, who says: "If they were attempting to write the word English in Spanish, they wanted the word Ingles (with an accent over the e). If they were going to do that, they should have also translated Spanish to the same language (Espanol...with the ~ over the n) so there was an agreement of sorts. Bad enough they misspelled English, but they added a period as well..."


This one, also from LadyStyx, is quite the FAIL. Shouldn't people who are snobby enough to think that the only language spoken in America is English also be smart enough to not screw up the spelling of a relatively simple word? I mean, really--hypocritical much?



And in case you thought bad spelling was just a national problem here in America, I'm letting you know that apparently there are also international problems with spelling... One of those problems is that "international" is too tricky for people to spell properly. (And now I'm biting my tongue so that I don't make any NASCAR jokes just in case some of you fine folks reading this happen to enjoy NASCAR...)


Happy Monday, everyone! :)

Note: Thank goodness I proofread what I write here; I was about to hit the "publish post" button, and I realized I'd misspelled a word in the title of the post. What was that word, you ask? "Misspelling." D'oh! Yeah, I really must still be tired...

Good to see it's not just the U.S.

I'm pretty sure spellingitis is a worldwide epidemic. ;)
