T-Pain Tattoo Catastrophe

Signature9 reports that T-Pain recently got a tattoo of the Facebook "Like" button.

This both fascinates and horrifies me for many reasons. But let's just ignore the fact that the tattoo is hideous and will be relevant for a maximum of two years and instead focus on its punctuation error.

A little piece of advice for you readers out there: If you can use the word "zeitgeist" in regards to your tattoo, don't go under the needle. I am confident that whoever invents a cheaper and more effective tattoo-removal technology in the next few years will be rolling in money. And when it happens, I'll say, "I knew it was T-Pain."

This blog posting is dedicated to my friend Jeremy. He was about to send me a link to a news story about T-Pain's tattoo, but I sent it to him first.

World Series / AT&T Catastrophe

Many of us are suffering from a bit of winter malaise, so I thought it might be nice to post a baseball-related apostrophe catastrophe. Pitchers and catchers report to spring training just one month from today!

In this context, its should not have an apostrophe in it. Shame on AT&T.

Thanks to Katie for sending me this apostrophe catastrophe way back in October!

Highway Blizzard Catastrophe

Based on the latest weather predictions, we might see a lot of signs like this in Boston tomorrow.

Thanks to my friend Stephanie for sending in this triple error that she spotted on her commute on I-93. Apostrophe catastrophe plus spelling error plus random plural? This may be one of the worst ones ever!

Readers, please be careful driving!

That's the Breaks

Happy New Year, everyone! Leah spotted this apostrophe catastrophe/spelling error at a body shop in Evanston, Illinois:

The Break Inn could be a lovely name for a B&B.

Thanks, Leah!
