Nitpickers anonymous


And not so anonymous, it would seem. Web “Perthonality” Miles Burke has a site – WrongWrite – showcasing snapshots of bad spelling, grammar and incorrect punctuation on signs. I submitted a picture of a display stand that had been bugging me in the local video library for a long time – check it out, it’s hard to believe that a) someone employed to design a sign like that would think an apostrophe should actually go there; b) that it managed to get all the way to the printers without anyone saying “ummm… about that apostrophe…”; and c) no one works at the store who cares enough to colour in, cover up or otherwise disguise the offending puntuative imprint (yes, I’m making words up).
