Answers & Winner

Here are the answers from yesterday's "Errors In Advertising Post".

1) The word Equipment in misspelled.

2) The word should be "than" not "then". Unless they were trying to explain that the Pilgrims are worth more, and then it is time to eat our Turkey Dinner. hmmm. And although "pilgrim" is acceptable when speaking about someone who has made a journey or pilgrimage, the dictionary points out that it should be capitalized when referring to the group of early American Settlers.

3) Should read "Accepting" not "excepting". It should also be Valentine's Day.

4) Physicians is misspelled. Though perhaps the "Doctrs" don't care. tee hee.

5) Improper use of quotations (unless they are trying to warn the public that the "meat" in these hotdogs is something other than meat - ugh)

6) Heath Insurance? If I am paying Heath's insurance for him, then I AM paying too much! Should be "health". Also Insurance no isurance. Qualified not qualifiend. Your area not yourareae. Thousands not thosands. Accuracy not accurancy. Savings instead of saving.

7) Improper placement of apostrophe. "You're" not "Your'e"

Bonus: Microdermabrasion is one word. An alternate acceptable answer would be microderm abrasion.

The winner of the Blockbuster Card is Rhondalue!!! (Could it have anything to do with the fact that she "entered" 4 times?) Email me your contact info and I will get it to you. emmapanti@gmail.com

Congrats on being SITS FB! How cool!

paestar said...

You're blog is so refreshing. I love it!!! Speaking of mispelled words, have you ever watched the show, Intervention? They use words in the wrong context, misspell words, it's so annoying. I tried to email them but they don't have an email listed on their website. They spelled Xanax (Xenex) wrong, and they are a show about drug addiction!!!!

Ginny said...

Congrats on your SITS Day! I had to go back, I got all the mis-spellings. However without looking to look, I glossed right over the then/thank & the except/accept. After you mentioned it, I saw it right away, lol.

Congrats on your SITS day! I'm always excited to see someone I know being featured. Enjoy all the comments!

Oh, and thanks for looking up pilgrims in the "dicitonary." Sorry, you probably didn't expect us to find errors in your own post! I wouldn't normally point it out, except (or should I put "accept?" hehe) for the subject of this post. Not that having an error in a blog post is ANYTHING like having an error in an ad!
