What an epitaph

We've seen engraved apostrophe abuse before but this is something else.

 

A tip of my hat goes to Apostrophe Abuse for such a startling find.

 

I really like these more permanent errors. As funny as it is to see illiterate, amateur scrawling on cardboard, there's something unsettling about knowing prolonged effort and significant expense has been poured into an error-strewn monstrosity.

 

Take this example:

Sign commemorating racist movie features inappropriate apostrophe

My glee was increased when I discovered that the film commemorated by this monument to stupidity courted controversy for its endorsement of white supremacy - in particular the KKK. A poorly educated racist: who'd have thought it?

Illy Italian espresso paired with an old west feel. Great sandwiches and of course wifi make sitting down on our couch a comfy and productive experience just about any time of day! And for those of you without a laptop, no need to worry we've got you covered with a couple of free access computers too!
