Apostrophe catastrophes

I confess that my quest for bad signage is far too easy. This one absolutely makes me want to weep. . . . . . Stop by every 1st and 3rd Wednesday for a peek into the world...

    Didja notice the “s” is also backwards on the first picture?

    I did, but it just didn’t fit in with the “hole” homophone thing today. :)

    While skimming my news feed on Fb, I had to click on this link because I was curious why homophobes were at risk. I guess their at risk of seeing two many of hour signs with the wrong words.

    That last sign has sort of a “Twilight Zone” feel to it. (Wonder what kind of weird grammar-related episode might have come from Rod Sterling’s pen?)

    You’re right, Janet! It sure does have that “Twilight Zone” look.

    Did you take these photos yourself, or did you find them online? Love this stuff!

    Hi, Brian! Nice to see you here.

    The photos come from a variety of sources. Some I take myself as I come across unusual signs or fliers. If I find a particularly excellent offering on another website, I ask permission to use it. So far, everyone’s been happy to share.

    But most of my photos, including these three delights, come from Flickr (each photo links back to the original). I look for pix that have a Creative Commons 2.0 license, which generally give me the most flexibility for use without asking for special permission.

    Thanks for stopping by!
