Ruffled Feathers and Spilled Milk

Farming with ducks and dairy goats, chickens and children.

Which is better….

Posted on | May 30, 2012 | 5 Comments

…when you write a post for your blog…or when your friends simply hand you the material to write a post for your blog?

I think we all know the answer to that one.

The following text was written by me.  But the photos were provided by Lisa and Brook.  Because I don’t get off the farm often enough to find pictures like these ones.  Which leads us to another question….

Which is worse….

accidental misspelling:

or purposeful misspelling?

I really cannot decide.

We don’t see those kind of signs around here.  Primarily because the goats and tomatoes cannot spell (and the kids leave the caps off the markers so they are always dried up).  Of course, I don’t think these people can spell either.  Perhaps someone should take their markers away.

    While the purposeful misspellings are clever and I appreciate clever, I enjoy the accidental ones more because they give me a giggle.

    I’m flattered. Let’s hope they are not permanent markers! The question for me continues to be: Did they really mean severing? Based on the location of the sign, we decided no – they just weren’t paying attention. I showed the sign to my “gifted” daughter who replied, “Big Deal – Thank you for serving our country.” Let’s hope she was a little more alert for her EOGs.

    The ones I find funny, but cashiers do not are:
    .5 cents each! Heck, a dollar would get you 20! Also I hate it when news “reporters” read “readers” don’t say numbers right. 10,050 becomes ten thousand and fifty rather than ten thousand fifty. How are our children supposed to learn if what they hear is hogwash…? Nice entry Stevie!

    I thought about that too! If it had been right after the amendment vote and in Carrboro I would have thought they really meant “severing.” Since it was Memorial Day and in the country, I figured there was no sarcasm intended 😉

    That’s hilarious. I love when I find signs like that–problem is, I rarely have the camera with me when I see that stuff.
