Money raised will be used for spelling lessons

It’s one thing if a kid had written up this sign, but the fact that it was actually printed up like this … for a school fundraiser … well, that’s pretty bad.

Rumage: does that rhyme with plumage?

Thanks to Karl for the photo!

    Chalk one up for Karl!

    In honor of Karl, I’m proposing counting the number of dogloos seen at yardsales. Last weekend I saw a total of 1.

    Maybe next year they should assign someone in the English department to order up the banners!

    I believe “all school” takes a hyphen as well…

  4. Too funny! And thanks for posting this. I’m soooo sick of bad spelling all over the place, but this takes the KAKE.

    Funny and quite sad, isn’t it? I think of the most common mistakes is subtituting “your” when the writer really means “you’re”. I see that all of the time! But to have such a blantant error on a school banner–is just plan sad. Love your blog! I visit all the time!

    How funny! Any idea where this is? What school it’s for? Thanks for the laugh this morning.

  7. Oh that is bad. I am suprised its not Hugh’s sale, example: Hugh All School Rumage sale.
