the au bon pain of grammatical errors.


(click image for closer look)
Line is: "Definitely Not For The Feint Of Lunch."
As tipster and photo snapper Jane Leibrock points out, it should read "...The Faint Of Lunch." Right now, it reads as, "Definitely Not For The Deceptive Or Pretended Blow Of Lunch." Looking at that sandwich, I believe it would deliver quite the direct blow to my intestines. Ha, see what I did there!!! (sigh) Is this worse than Reebok's subway typo? ING's informal window poster? It's definitely not as bad as this horrific, error-filled Labiaplasty ad. Proofreaders? YOUR (I'm mean, "you're") UNDERPAID!

I more confused why they thought putting a backwards "GameStop" neon sign in the middle of their banner was a good idea:).

Kevin, it's a great idea to put that sign backwards...because it's just a reflection of the window. :)

Remind me again why I, an incredibly anal word nerd who actually enjoys proofreading, can't get a job?
