Funny English Signs

We all make mistakes. There really is nothing wrong with that as long as we can take constructive feedback.

Sometimes, though, the mistakes can be subtle, forcing even seasoned writers to think a little bit. Here are some signs that make me chuckle. Photo courtesy of Funny Typos. The happiness and pride of whoever wrote the sign is quite apparent, but I am pretty sure that the “gradute” isn’t that proud about it. (Unless he/she wrote the sign – I certainly hope [Read more…]
