Now that you've smiled at least once, it's your turn to spread the stupidity and send this to someone you want to bring a smile to (maybe even a chuckle). We all need a good laugh, at least once a day!

Oh man.. this is hilarious!! But in general,i agree that the level of the language we meet in the papers is a tad below the level we meet on blogs. Ditto for content.

That's a good one, sometimes they do that on TV.

Hope you have a good day. It is 60 degrees here right now, I can hardly believe it!

Hugs~~~leslie

These add a chuckle. I used to be a proofreader, way before spell check. I like the picture on the side of you and Abe in 1955. Great looking family pictures also! Have a great day!

You would think they would proofread.
Or maybe they write it that way just to be funny or memorable.
Who knows?

Winifred said...

Proof reading is very difficult! You usually see what you expect to see.

Love your pictures.

Gramma Ann said...

I enjoyed reading those. It's funny sometimes when you read headlines, you wonder what they were thinking. Probably toward the end of the day and they just wanted to go home. ;)

Margaret Cloud said...

Very nice post, I liked them especially the battery charge, I always like to come here and Merles, you two make me smile. Thanks for coming by.

Femin Susan said...

Hi....
That's a good one.. I really enjoyed.....

Renie Burghardt said...

These are funny. As a writer, I have to do a great deal of proof reading.

You had a dog that lived to be 22? Wow, that has to be a record.

We have been in the low 70s since Friday. Nature has been kind to us for a change!

Have a good night.

Thanks for the smiles, Patty ~~ and your family photos are wonderful! :)

I was at the beach all afternoon today, busy all morning! Did'nt even have time to be in Blogger.

((hugs))

Your blog is stunning. I really like it.

I also really thought your post was fun to read and reminds me of some of those posts I have seen where the Japanese spell things out in an odd way. Nice post.

Merle said...

Dear Patty ~~ Your blog looks wonderful. Clever lady to do that. The photos are great. Thank you so very much for your comments about the awful fires in Victoria. I think they are getting on top of them now, thank God. Over 1000 homes destroyed at least, and near 200 dead, that they expect to rise as they get to them.
I am enoying having the little doggies. John won't be near any fires.
Take care, my dear friend and thank you for caring. Love, Merle.
