Having finished WIP#1, I am Knee-deep in (final) edicts right know, which is existing.
However, I'm al slow funding so many grandmar mistakes that Grammarly.com gave me a full refund -- and my own hashtag on Twitter: #LostClause.
This made me think back to many years ago, when I worked for a local newspaper in Melbourne, Fla. During my orientation, my old editor told me the horror story about the headline in our newspaper that made it past the Editorial Board, management AND the printers, resulting in thousands and thousands of newspapers that proudly announced (above the fold!!!) an upcoming City Council gathering:
"Pubic Meeting Set For Friday"
(The headline apparently made it on the David Letteman Show, and the segment where he highlights media grammar/typo errors.)
For a bit of fun, I went out and found a few howlers... some you've probably seen, some not, but all should be a warning that we all knead too dribble chick hour wok.
Apparently with the one above, the husband asked the Wal-Mart cake maker to write "Best Wishes Suzanne" and underneath that "We will Miss you" :)
This one from Days Inn was arranged for Memorial Day earlier this year :) I was once a server and I appreciate the sentiment :)
Above, we have a pure Classic :)
These two come from The Grammar Vandal Blog!
(Their tagline: Taking it to the streets and correcting America, one comma at a time." :)
