Well, this is a different sort of senior discount...


Just what I've always wanted--my very own senior citizen*!  And at a 10% discount, too!  Woo-hoo!

Although the funniest aspect of this sign is that it makes it appear that this business actually has senior citizens for sale, my inner grammar/spelling geek needs to point out that "cigarettes" is misspelled and that "citizen" should be plural.  And I'm sure it goes without saying that "10% off senior citizen 65 or older" should be reworded so that it sounds less awkward...but of course I'll say it anyway.  ;)

Thanks to MICHAEL for spotting this sign!

Also, I'm starting to get a bit low on funny grammar pictures...if you've got any that you'd like to share with me, please email them to thegrammarphile@yahoo.com

* Actually, what I really want is my very own hot baseball player, but I hear they're pretty busy now through October.

That whole section feels awkward even if the cancer sticks were spelled correctly.
