Spelin' 101








I'm sure you Hudsonites have seen these signs, they are all over town, and not one (ok, maybe one) of them is spelled correctly or the same as the others. Most of them have apostrophes, and you know how I love apostrophes on plural words, right? As Charlie Brown would say, "AUUGGGHHHH!"

The'se signs actually make me feel angry. At this point, I just choose not to look.

Kelli said...

Unca John could probably fix em up with larger pieces of scrap wood. Large enough for ies.

Hilarious again Kristi! I see these all the time and wonder.....if they can't spell can they make change? No. That's terible. I mean terrible.

Do you think it's part of their schtick? Maybe they're a lot smarter than we think. I mean, we're all talking about them...

kristi noser said...

True. They don't have a shortage of people buying their strawbery's.

Kelli said...

Think of how many people must tell them that their signs are spelled wrong in the course of a summer.

Kelli, I never thought of that. I've been thinking they really don't know they misspelled everything. Maybe it really is just clever marketing...nah.
