HUMP DAY GRAMMAR for November 4, 2009


There are so many things wrong with this sign that I really don't know where to begin.

First of all, who the hell buys panties out of a random laundry basket?

What if bad grammar-itis can be transmitted through panties? Then you're so seriously screwed (not in the good way, either). I have a feeling this should say Ladies' Panties, not Lady's Panties.

And seriously, if somebody's only charging a buck for panties, I can't help but suspect they've gotta be pre-worn (that's way too cheap to sell new panties). And buying used panties...well, that's just gross.

Thanks to JOHN Z. for this picture. Happy Hump Day, you wild and crazy kids!

A person selling used underwear could be a woman but I'm pretty darned sure she's no lady.

@ Bridgete: Ew, indeed!

@ David: You are so right about that!

I'm wondering why it says "cash only" - who buys $1 panties with a credit card?

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

Haha...good point, Erika!

Someone's a copycat. Folks, this is an OLD story. This is EXACTLY how Sam Walton/Wal-Mart got started...even the part about selling the panties from a bin. He sold them in front of the store, out on the sidewalk.

He bought panties for $2 a dozen and sold them at 4 pair for a dollar.

You may want to read his biography, "Made in America" for more details.

@ LadyStyx: LOL! Whatcha doin' selling your laundry, hmmm? :)

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ Carlos: I second that "Ewwwww."

Ha! Gay, I had no idea. Perhaps this person selling panties is looking to be the next big entrepreneur... :)
