It’s just a jump to the left…

As today is January 31st, we can safely assume the mailroom is not in.  In fact, there’s probably a Brigadoon-like foggy marsh in the place where the mailroom was, for those five hours last month.

EARWORM’d!  Thank you, Al!

GMO WTH? Wk! Day 4!

More lovely mutated-vegetable imagery today, folks!  Today, please picture your vegetables skipping to the store, will you?  Also: DID ANYBODY PROOFREAD THIS STUFF?

The fascinating series of errors Colleen spotted at a genetically-modified organisms (GMO) protest continues tomorrow!

GMO WTH? Wk! Day 3!

Written By: admin - Jan• 26•11

This one’s perfect for a Wednesday, because honestly, how can you *not* giggle at the image of mutated vegetables?  I mean, yes, there’s a spelling error in here, and some issues with the parallel construction, and I think they’d have better gone with “vegetableS” than the singular, but really — mutated vegetables are funny, totally aside from grammar.  Samuel L. Jackson needs to make a movie about this!

GMO WTH? Wk! Day 2!

For those of you who don’t like being made nauseous by photographs, transcript below.

Dolly was the first successfully clones animal.

Safier meat and milk has been approved for consumption by the FDA.  Labeling is not requiring, but the Center for Food Safety is fighting that.  Cloned meat and milk may be in your local grocery in 2 to 3 years.

To be completely honest, I’m not even sure what “Safier” means here.  Are they saying that cloned meat and milk are safer than non-cloned?  I’m confused, and the weird verb conjugation choices don’t help!

These people… will buy your broken laptop?  Or only laptops that are working and not broken?

…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.

Maybe they’re made of magic?

Dave gives us the rundown on this spectacular Newsweek oops.

Unless I miss my mark, it should be “With fewer than 2,000 students—whom the college describes as intellectually curious.” “Which”  implies that the low number of students itself is an intellectually curious fact. I’m “intellectually curious” about why Newsweek can’t hire better copy editors!

I dunno, that sentence kind of makes me giggle.

Cutesy barf.

Nope, sorry, that’s the sum total of my reaction to this.

Lovely newlywed Veronica says “I get that this is supposed to be cute, but it just makes me sad.”

Yeah, let’s work on instilling those values of sloppy grammar really early, shall we?

Reporter #1 has sent you an Errors! Send them one back!

Reporter #1 is back with this troubling submission.

She quips, “I suppose grammatical errors go along with writing an application that only works as intended half the time.”

Now that’s where I draw the line, Reporter #1.  Nobody insults FarmVille on this blog.  Just because I have cut myself off in order to get some sleep doesn’t mean I’m going to let you knock that sweet, sweet harvesting, opening all those thrilling gifts, or struggling to build buildings that subsequently serve no redeemable purpose.  In fact — [WHOA THERE, FARMER!
