Still Laughing!

As many of you know, misspellings in public drive me nuts!  I may not have blogged about it, but it truly gets to me.  In fact, recently I ordered a cookie bouquet for a dear friend who just had a baby.  On the bakery’s web site, the picture showed a cookie that said, “Its a Boy!” I was hoping it was just a mistake on the picture, but no, when I went to pick up the cookies, there it was… “Its.”  I asked the girl behind to counter if she could add an apostrophe.  Of course, she looked at me like I had two heads, but too bad, sister.  I’m a teacher.  I’m giving these to a teacher.  And, IT WAS WRONG!  (Usually apostrophes are over-used and incorrectly.  I’ve supported a tax on apostrophes. Hasn’t been approved yet, but think of the revenue!)  Oh, and by the way, the grammar check on this post picked up the incorrect use of  “its.” Anyway, I digress. 

I’ve mentioned the Cake Wrecks site before, but today’s was just too good not to pass along.  It made me laugh for quite a while, and was funny enough to go back and read it again!

If you enjoy misspellings, cakes, and laughing, today’s post is for you!  It is well-written as well as appalling!  (The candles are my favorite.)
