Soulless Killing Machines

Stephen Colbert calls bears "soulless killing machines." This cardboard one, spotted by Sarah at Blair Drummond Safari Park in Scotland, is kinda cute, but the sign he's holding contains two apostrophe catastrophes!

There's an extra apostrophe in says, and don't is missing one.

Today's word: illiteracy

Thanks, Sarah!



This sign confused the hell out of me at first. Aside from the obvious apostrophe errors, I think the sign would be more clear if it said "Passengers *mustn't*." I saw "Passengers dont" and was like "don't WHAT?", and then I was like, "don't *must be*"? Ugh!

Also, with a name like Huggy, you'd think that bear would, like, SMILE or something, right? Instead he just looks rather perplexed.

@ Grammarphile: Huggy is probably just worried that people will blame him for the sign.
