Why Do You <3 Bad Punctuation?

This photo has been making the rounds on the Internet, but I thought it was worth posting anyway. I received it from a reader named Doc. For those of you who haven't seen the Why Do You <3 the Devil sign, be prepared. This may be the catastrophe to end all catastrophes.



The sign-maker (I believe it's from New Orleans) is preaching fire and brimstone. He needs to repent and believe in punctuation. Of all the people he hates, the only one he didn't punctuate with an unnecessary apostrophe is druggies. Also, what is high fullutent? However, I do share his dislike for freeloader's and wifebeater's.

Lord, have mercy!

I think he also needs to go on English Language fail, because I'm guessing it means "highfalutin sophisticated swine" -- i.e. people who know where to put their apostrophes and each arugula.

OMG ... that is an English professor's NIGHTMARE

Is it possible to go to hell for being stupid? If so, the maker of this horribly offensive sign should watch out.

Sport's Nut's are evil?

When'd that happen?

I think I need to burn my eyeballs out after reading that mess.

Apparently druggies, government recipients (hard to see if the apostrophe is there)and effeminate men deserve/merit correct spelling and punctuation, however.

My personal favorite is "Sport's Nut's".

This sign is just awful! Wow.

HorribleLicensePlates said...

This is great. I think sophistocated swine is my fav. That, and loud mouth women. LOL

I'm sure the Druggies are very happy that they are safe from this catastrophe.

<= Loud Mouth Woman :-)

We'll agree with him/her on the racists, emos and sports nuts, but highfalutin sophisticated swine? We take umbrage!

TEKY said...

No Jews? COME ON! That's such a basic one. I'm offended at being left off his list. Hate me too, damnit!

One of the only moments I was proud of my school was when Westboro Baptist Church sent us an angry letter. Their grammar was fine, by the way.

Bahi's -- If we're talking about a religion that originated in Persia, I think there's also a spelling catastrophe going on here.

Becky said...

Teky, wow, good point! I am surprised at that omission, too!

The Sophisticate's Diary said...

I'm struggling to see which section of the poulation this person is aiming for.
By excluding racists he really has shot himself in the foot as the majority of people irrationally fearful of the other categories would likely be racist too.

A very niche category of lunatic.

Jesus was a gangster, a feminist new ager, and an emo, liberal, high fullutent, sophisticated freeloader. He should repent and believe in himself.

everyone on the list should get together for one helluva party!

Are sport's nut's like beer nut's?

This sign's making me sick to my stomach.
