This shirt has been sent to me from several people, including readers Melissa, Ariana and Ryan.
I was in disbelief when I first saw it. I still am, to a degree. How could this American Eagle shirt ever have been sold? How did it even get through quality assurance?
Take a look:
Love the one your with.
Allow me to repeat:
LOVE THE ONE YOUR WITH!!!!!!
This one actually made me upset. Is this the direction in which we’re trending? Should we expect to see more and more shirts like these in the future?
I hope not, but I wouldn’t be surpised.
American Eagle, you really should have known better. I can’t imagine how many mistakes were made at so many levels within the company for this shirt to have been put on shelves and sold.
If you have the money to do so, now is a GREAT time to travel. Rates are so low due to the economy, and you won’t believe the travel deals you can find. My friends and I just booked our third trip to Vegas and we’re staying at the five-star Palazzo, the Venetian’s upscale sister resort, for a ridiculously low rate.
In fact, some hotels are actually giving away tons of freebies, from meals to show tickets.
But nobody takes the cake like this Days Inn sent to me by reader Laura:
HBO. CNN. Spouse. It’s ALLLLLLLL free!
I have received so many emails over the past few days, most of them with submissions. You guys are hilarious.
This one comes courtesy of reader Eli, who found it on this site:
I bet Ann’s also sorry she’s selling so much Barq’s Root Beer. With her incontinent customers, that can’t lead to anything good!
Last night, my friend Andy sent me a picture of the cake that his parents picked up for his grandparents’ anniversary:
The cake decorator asked his mother how to spell anniversary.
She spelled it out, but he got it wrong. He corrected it, as you can see by the smudged frosting in the middle, but forgot about the rogue I.
Still, though, this isn’t as funny as the greatest cake error of all time.
And don’t forget the error-covered birthday cake that my friends from work got for me this year!
I received this submission from reader Joanna:
Do you accept submissions? If so, please accept mine. Note not only the obvious “Your” but also the mysterious lowercaseness of the lone pronoun. Oh, how I wished I had a Sharpie in my pocket, but at least I had my trusty camera phone.
This sign amuses me on two different levels. First of all, there’s the obvious error.
But beyond that…what does a fish eating a worm have to do with walking and/or driving across a property?!
Odd. (It does remind me of a sign my sister and I begged our parents to get for the backyard. It had an angry cartoon fish on it yelling, “Hey! Who peed in the pool?” We thought it was hilarious. They wouldn’t oblige.)
For the record, I always love submissions — so send them in!
Also, I’m off to Vegas this weekend. I’ll be back on Tuesday, which is sure to be a wonderful, wonderful day here in America!
I received this recent submission from reader Elizabeth. She and her husband went to Alabama for a wedding and encountered the following sign in a restaurant:
The best part? This message, with this exact wording, was reprinted verbatim on placards on each table.
Thanks, Elizabeth — I live for signs like these!
The following image is courtesy of my former boss, Paula, who was in the North End of Boston the other day and saw two incredible signs:
Which is also listed as Thacher St.
How can people do that?! Look at that! The signs are RIGHT NEXT TO EACH OTHER!
