Jersey Shore T-Shirt Apostrophe Catastrophe

My friend Jodi spotted this t-shirt on a recent family vacation to the Jersey Shore.

Two catastrophes in one! This t-shirt is especially close to my heart because my dad, whose birthday was earlier this week, has the patience of a saint. At least I'm not Snooki, but there have been a few truly horrific guys over the years. And that's all I'm saying about that topic....

Thanks, Jodi!

A Van Down by the River

This apostrophe catastrophe-laden van was parked outside my office a couple of days ago.

Making the Same Mistake Twice

Heather sent me this logo from the local newsletter in Chatham, Illinois, which makes the same error twice in a row.

Thanks, Heather!

Weekend Is

Spotted at a bar in Watertown, Mass., which shall remain nameless.

Unlike Larry David, I don't want to sh*t where I eat.

Is it Friday yet?

Bluffin' with My Muffin's

Judy spotted this ad that has catastrophes in muffin's and jam's. Somehow, sandwiches and cookies escaped unscathed.

I guess it's better than cooky's.

Thanks, Judy!

And She Was with Some Kid Called David from the Garage Up the Road

Here's a somewhat subtle one:

Becca in Montpelier, Vermont, writes, "I'm not sure how perfect something needs to be to be babies perfect."

Maybe as perfect as the song that my LastFM was playing while posting this. Jarvis is a genius.
