The thing I’m running out of

…is goodwill.  With Goodwill.  Which has, apparently, embraced something akin to the Verizon school of math.  GIANT SIGH.

I don’t get credit for this one, which was pointed out to me with glee by my husband.

One row over, we found that we weren’t the only ones who had noticed…

Anthropomorphism? Illogical? BOTH?

Al sent this.  Take a look.

So.  Here we have a thinking, ambulatory sidewalk that blocks the fire exit occasionally, at which time smokers are advised not to stand on it.  Alternatively, we have the suggestion that smokers might be likely to idly hang about on the sidewalk in the case of a fire.

“Hey, look, the building’s on fire!  And I think there are people trying to get out of that door behind you, dude.”

“Eh.  I really need a cigarette.  Got a light?”

GMO WTH? Wk! Day 5!

Our final day of lovely submissions from the genetically-modified organisms protest takes us to the horrifying world of fruit.  Mutated fruit, misused gerunds, and missing punctuation, oh my!

Thus endeth the fascinating series of errors Colleen spotted at a genetically-modified organisms (GMO) protest.  Mutant vegetable thanks to you, Colleen!

I’d like to beat YOUR GRAMMAR up!

Reporter #1 sends this lovely picture of a gratuitous hyphen (and a gorgeous kid!).

Please note that I have no issue with the quotation marks around the word “body.”  They’re perfectly appropriate here.  But that doesn’t give us license to just throw punctuation around willy-nilly, people!

Holy ellipsis, Batman!

Okay, let me clear this right up for y’all.

“Three shall be the number thou shalt count, and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither count thou two, excepting that thou then proceed to three. Five is right out.”

AN ELLIPSIS HAS THREE DOTS.  Got it??

Also, this would probably have been better served with a question mark.  Just sayin’.

50% right is 50% wrong.

Lisa feels sorry for “poor Mia and her excess apostrophe.”  But I think that’s missing the point.  Clearly the salon belongs to Mia’s getaway.  Of course, then we have some random spaces going on, so…  I don’t know.

…because it’s tough to imagine that the Federal Government doesn’t know the difference between “effect” and “affect.”

Also, we should note that the question on the left (which is sufficient unto itself) doesn’t combine properly with the phrases on the right, so we have punctuation and logic issues going on here too.

So easy to fix, so easy to mock.

Not to be nitpicky, but does this mean I can feed wildlife if the wildlife in question isn’t picking plants?

Where to start, mate?

Check this.

Apostrophe abuse… ellipsis elongation… a general lack of punctuation where such punctuation might make this sign actually legible.  Nice!

Am I confused, or are you?

Oh, Kroger.  Are you asking me a question or are you just really excited?

Also, there’s an apostrophe in “Hershey’s.”
