"Fiction is the purest art. Commercial fiction is the butter, the darkest chocolate, and the finest malt. That's why we are so addicted to it."--Angie Brooksby-Arcangioli
Death is coming after my mine? Damn! It was supposed to be a secret!Stupid Death. Now I've got to move all that gold out of the country, before Revenue Canada gets wind. I'm sure they're close personal friends of Death...
that doesn't top the "Anachy" (sic) tattoo that I've seen.
Hang on a sec - does life imitate art, or is it the other way around? You may recall that a certain manuscript you're about to see again has a character with the following tattooed on his shaved head: IF YOU CAN READ THIS YOUR ABOUT TO GET YOUR ASS KICKED.
Can tattoo artists get sued for such errors, I wonder? I'm such a big fusser about spelling and grammar, that I can't help worrying about a spelling error being made on my gravestone. It would be tragic and admittedly hilarious at the same time, but what could I do about it but spin? AGH!
Susan, what you do is leave very clear instructions as to what goes on your tombstone, and mention that the estate is to make sure everything is spelled correctly --or else you'll come back and haunt them from the unworthy grave.If you're anything like me, I'm sure they'll be very, very diligent about the spelling. (I can be very... annoying... in case you haven't noticed.)
That guy needs a dicitionary!
I'd demand a refund.The best one I've come across as a teacher was a curricular guide to prepare students for a literacy test that referred to the children as studnets .
Yes! Fail Blog rulez! :-)
That made me laugh so loud it made both my husband and cat jump. My favorite misspelling: in the parking lot of the K-12 school where I used to teach, they paint "sotp" at the end of my parking lot row.
