Unstoppably Bad Grammar

My friend/former co-worker Fiona sent me a link from one of the most poorly written web sites I've ever seen. Are you ready to be horrified?


Two apostrophe catastrophes (three if you count "TV's" as a catastrophe -- depends on your style guide), random capitalization, subject verb disagreement, spacing problems, a spelling mistake, no periods, missing hyphens, run-on sentences ... this web site has it all. My brain hurts.

Thanks, Fiona! Way to carpe diem! (She's a Latin teacher.)

So one of my students is now writing websites. . .

Seriously though, I've seen worse than that!

Wow. That's astonishing! I went to the restaurant's web site and sent them a note about the horrific grammar ;-)

Me again. I spent but a few minutes at the restaurant's web site and my head exploded. fortunately I touch-type, so I don't need a head (or eyes) to comment.

I'll include a link to the restaurant's site in a brief post today. It's awful. I wonder if the owner let his/her sixteen-year-old son or daughter author the site. Yikes!

Carlos, did you really write to them to complain? That's hilarious. Let me know if they write back.

Carlos said...

I did...and I'll make sure I post the response...if I get one!

The link is dead. Go to http://amrheinsboston.com
The site is still bad but I couldn't find the minuet on the menu, but I'll bet they still serve it.
