Mixed Messages

A couple things seen in the last month or so.

False advertising?

Are those "wireless margaritas" free, or do they cost $1.99? Either way, it is a bargain for such a high-tech innovation.

High class town?

From one of those homemade small-town billboards:

Homes of Xyzzy
Buy * Sell * Free Delivery

Something tells me that the housing in this town is more mobile than the population.

He is risen!

Sign in front of a rural church:

Jesus is WAZ UP!

Funny ads, it really gets weirder than this. If you have been to India you will know people actually make spelling mistakes in ad boards.

free or 1.99 still a good deal.

Have you read Eats Shoots and Leaves. It is a book all about puntucation and how it should be used, and what happens when it is used incorrectly. The book is one of the funniest I have read!

They make spelling mistakes on big billboards in the US also. Our newspaper has published articles about "wreckless drivers".

We share (with Canada, Australia, India, Scotland, and others) something that was once the Queen's English. I can only imagine what it will look like when the txtrs are in charge.

Thanks, Sarah. Saw that charming book just the other day. Even cuter than The Elements of Style Illustrated.
