New York Public Transportation Catastrophe

I don't tend to post photos that have been posted elsewhere, but this one, originally posted on Gothamist, was too good not to share.

L.e.s.t.e.r. took this photo and Gothamist used it in its piece about MTA typos.

Thanks to L.e.s.t.e.r., Gothamist, and my friend Marisa for making me aware of New York's typo problem. If New York was able to clean up Times Square, it ought to be able to fix a few pesky grammatical errors.

A Doctor Is Parking

This sign, which Katie spotted at Sutter Memorial Hospital, implies that the hospital employs only one doctor.

You guys should fix that, stat!

Thanks, Katie!

County Council Catastrophe

Bradley sent me this catastrophic image from a Utah county councilman's website:

I guess our tax's [sic] aren't going toward English classes at school.

Thanks, Bradley!

Apostrophe Catastrophe on TV

Kathleen spotted this one watching The First 48.

She writes, "This sign appeared in the Crime Stoppers division of the Selby County office in Memphis, TN." Crime stopper is what?

Good catch with the DVR!

Thanks, Kathleen!

Nate couldn't believe his eyes when he found this apostrophe catastrophe at a video store in Parma, Ohio:

This movie looks so bad that I don't even know where to begin mocking it.

Nate found another cover without the apostrophe catastrophe, but apparently the $1.99 version was never fixed. I looked at IMDB and found that the movie is also called A Cat's Tale, but I guess they decided to shorten it to Cat's for the DVD. This is bizarre and horrendous!

Thanks, Nate!
