I’ve never understood the tendency to write in all-caps except for the letter L, the one letter whose lower case looks exactly like another letter’s upper-case. But it’s surprisingly common.
Fortunately I don’t think anyone’s going to pull a “Cancel that, it says HELF” on this warning sign!
I saw this sign in a coffee shop the other day. Honestly, the misspelling of Dr. Seuss’ name is more painful than the misspelling of nonsense, which you could at least look at as a stylistic choice.
I figured it was only kind to blot out the name of the shop at the lower left.
Maybe “Sent from my iPhone/Droid/whatever” is worth including…as a spelling disclaimer. (Sent from my G2)
I’ve never understood why people will use a lower-case L in the middle of an otherwise all-caps phrase. It’s the only lower-case letter that happens to look exactly like another letter entirely when mixed with capitals.
Free raffie? for a waik-in tub?
