A certain downtown lunch spot has this sign posted in the window:
try a hot stuffed potatoe*
Is Dan Quayle creating signs now?
I know we've had grammar debates on this blog, but what do you think about such silly mistakes? I'm amazed at the number of spelling errors or grammar errors in signs, on menus and in other promotional literature. Sometimes mistakes are understandable. We know the difference between its and it's, but how many of us have -- when exhausted, distracted or just rushed -- substituted the wrong homonym?
This sign has been there for months. I noticed it right away, but I never remember to say something to the owner/manager/employees.
Do you get annoyed by poorly worded signs? Any memorable ones out there?
*I'm paraphrasing. I'll get the exact wording when I venture out for lunch.
