    longer review later for now booooooo that is an assessment not a ghostokay review proper it might surprise some of you to know that poor grammar bothers me too despite the way i comport myself here i might be a lazy typist here on goodreadscom but this is me at parade rest i just type so poorly already like some kind of animal at the keyboard that it is easier for me to just go zooooom and not bother with punctuation and capitals this is casual to me were i writing a paper or making a nice sign or something formal i would tidy it up grammatically speaking this book seems to spring from a genuine revulsion towards the misuse of the apostrophe but she is such a shit writer and i am writing this at school far from my book so i have to double check if she is just the editor or the writer but it seemed to have a consistent tone throughout so i think she was the author that it loses all humor yes people misuse the apostrophe all the time and it is upsetting but a number of things piss me off about this book one her targets several times it is clear that the sign that have the apostrophe in the wrong place are not signs where english is the first language many times the information will be in spanish or some other language and underneath there will be a close approximation in english with a misplaced apostrophe this doesnt bother me if i am in another country where i do not speak the language i would be pleased as punch to see that an effort was being made to help me figure out what signs meant and i wouldnt be so churlish as to criticize the grammar jeez particularly if i was anywhere in asia i mean really the translations into english from any language of the whole continent is so charming that apostrophes are the least interesting thing to observe i have a mug from japan that says peekaboo all smiles and no frowns thats what i want and it is the best you cant hate something that is cute i have tried two her comments are not funny connor has this pet peeve about people who instead of saying something clever as a retort just say oh its too easy i could say something but it would be too easy he maintains that it is actually not easy but that it is easy to say its too easy rather than coming up with something funny comprennez vous? so but this book doesnt even take that escape route this is supposed to be a humor book captions should be humorous not just abusive so many of her comments are just its not possessive you are using the apostrophe wrong 'towel's' means the towel owns it jeez etc this isnt funny this is just an instructional manual on how to use the apostrophe and it gets old its just page after page of the same old shit i thought it would be funny a la cake wrecks but these are just picky little stupid bullshits who takes time out of their life to complain about a yard sale sign?? i mean really whats funny on a cake is not funny everywhere i hate this book

    What a letdown I wasn't expecting rolling on the ground laughter or anything but I was hoping for a few chuckles in the 'ha ha auto correct says the darndest things' kind of way There were no chuckles to be had Not A OneYou know what's annoying than a grammar slip up the person who is continuously pointing out grammar slip upsSome people just don't get apostrophes they add them where they shouldn't be and then sometimes don't use them when they need to isn't that just hilarious?I would say that at least 90% of the pictures have to do with the misuse of an apostrophe It got old very uickly like immediately The only thing that could save the content would be if Nichols' commentscaptions were actually witty or clever Surely this grammatical mastermind must also be a comedy geniusThis humorless book was incredibly boring and the 'author' came off as incredibly pretentious There are no redeeming ualities I'm just thankful that I got this at the library so that I didn't have to spend any money on itWould I recommend

    Seriously? What is wrong with Americahow could they're teachers let them graduate from high school with out nowing how too use the proper spelling?My paragraph above is annoying isn't it? Then please for once use proper English spelling for God's sakeThe book displays a plethora of spelling and pronunciation which are commonly found in USA and elsewhere Not surprisingly the spelling mistakes are commonplace in USA than in other English speaking countries such as Australia Canada or BritainSome would assume that this is due to the fact that the author hails from Alabama I would argue otherwiseMost Americans students simply graduate from high school without knowing how to spell 'em rightIt's true

    I was looking for something entertaining and light to read over lunch and grabbed this from the local library thinking it would be clever and fun Nope About a third of the book is nothing but misplaced apostrophes Most of the rest are common spelling errors and other misplaced punctuation A small chunk is devoted to laughing at those for whom the English language is not their primary language None of the mistakes are particularly funny Except one on the Acknowledgement page the word acknowledge is misspelled It's always funny when people who are strict about the language skills of others feel that the same rules do not apply to themThe captions were pointless Imagine this a photo shows a door to a restroom The sign upon the door says boy's restroom and the caption that follows says so the restroom is for one boy? Hardy har har It's as if the author doesn't trust the reader to spot the mistake themselves she has to point it out Instead of clever and funny captions her captions read like hey did you see that mistake? How stupid I see the mistake Do you?For a book written by such a smug perfectionist the photos were terrible Some blurry some tiny most amateurish If you are looking for true comedy along this vein I recommend something like Cake Wrecks or Awkward Family Photos This book could only be useful to the ultra smug grammar Nazi looking for another excuse to feel superior to human beings who make minor mistakes once in a while

    Bad signs are ubiuitous because people can't spell Sometimes they're funny sometimes embarrassing most often they're just sad There are at least four different groups on Flickr dedicated to misspellings typos and bad signs I know because I belong to themFor a book like this it's not enough to simply collect various misspellings you need to have a goodly dose of humor in the captions If not a goodly dose at least a dash A sprinkle ANYthing There's no snark here no wit It's just mean spirited judgement I've never heard of this woman before but based on what she's written here she seems to be a humorless stupid witch Oops typo Correct that last word yourselfThe other problem is that some of the signs aren't incorrect Car Park Valeting isn't an error you dumb cow it's British In Britland they call parking lots car parks and valeting is an actual word Similarly colouring is how the UKians spell it So do Canadians and Australians and Indians from India and residents of Hong Kong Yes it's stupid to add random Us after random Os because the English were once upon a time trying to be French but that's actually how they do itAlso at least two of the signs were clearly Photoshopped You can't make fun of fake signs as if they're real You just look like an idiotSkip this book Go to Flickr and see some genuinely funny bad signs with actual snarky comments about them

    Hilarious collection of the misuse of grammar typical of today I was rolling with laughter reading this book in our bookstore and had to put it on my staff pick shelf Though not included I still cringe when I see parking in rear seriously?? It's AT the rear of the storenot IN Anyway I highly recommend this as a light read bathroom read or coffee table book Any English major such as myself would both laugh and cringe with each turn of the page

    Kind of boring after awhile You can only stretch the joke of the inadvertent apostrophe so far

    There is an awesome web site called that for a long time has been capitalizing on hilarious errors like the ones presented in this book The thing is on Engrish the guy who writes the site adds pithy comments to many of the pictures that for me take the pictures from amusing to hilariousThis book is a collection of similar pictures only in this case the commentary is flat and sometimes downright stupid which basically ruins the whole effectThis is the sort of book that is mildly entertaining in someone's bathroom but I wouldn't suggest anyone spend money on it
