More Debacles of the English Language

As with my previous post on this topic, the following requires a sense of humor. A little levity can be a good thing. I also extend my thanks to the creators of these debacles as they have helped me show my students what not to do.

Oh, the humanity! What did the English language do to deserve such brutality?


If one is going to abuse apostrophes and spell recklessly all over a restaurant, at least be consistent.

I don’t know which end is up!

Okay. Seriously, who writes these headlines? Apparently the Pope is talking to cats … and more!

Apostrophes still do not form plurals, not even at a college cafeteria.

In the highly unlikely event of an emergency, please offer constructive criticism about the building.
