In NPR's quiz show Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me this week's Bluff the Listener segment had a story that would definitely appeal to ELF's grammar police.

During the hockey off-season, maybe you can volunteer to help The Typo Eradication Advancement League. ;-)

P.S. They didn't stump me, I figured that this had to be the true story in this segment.B-]

Whew. When I saw this headline, I was afraid that one of our own had been pinched!

You shouldn't deface government property. But still, doesn't anybody in government think about proofreading before casting a $3,000 bronzed sign? (Is the sign really worth $3,000, or is that just what the government claims? I think bronzed house signs are about $150 and this defaced sign didn't seem a whole lot larger.)

Somewhere on the highway between Hobart and Cornell last week, we passed through a small town whose signmaker shop had a typo on the freakin' sign. I almost turned around and went back for a photo ... but didn't, figuring I'd never have a use for the photo.

You can always send a photo like that to Failblog.
