Machine Machine

This is a classic mistake I've seen before in front of various convenience stores. It's not as common anymore because old signs are being replaced by new signs, but I caught this one at a rundown, ghetto, deli-mart in the town next to mine. 

Correction: If you haven't already caught onto what is wrong with this, allow me to explain. "ATM" stands for "Automated Teller Machine." Understanding this, the sign would be read "Automated Teller Machine Machine Available." New sign creators have realized this and have dropped the second machine. Took them a while though to figure it out and they were able to get away with it, too. Apparently, what "ATM" stands for isn't common knowledge, hmmm...


"Flipping" Out On Facebook

This guy totally set himself up with this one. I can imagine that us girls would seem complicated to a slow guy like yourself. And don't add the little "lol" to soften up your rage. You're not even laughing. No one's ever laughing when they write "lol."

I wonder what happened to piss this guy off and then lead him to post it all over Facebook. I bet you it was one of those situations where this guy and girl are friends and the guy is only friends with the girl because he wants her. The girl, however, is friends with the guy because she wants to be his friend. The guy then asks the girl out and she declines because she's not interested in dating him. He then is confused because he thought that she was interested since she was his friend. He doesn't get it that girls can be friends with guys and not be sexually attracted to them. Therefore, he writes her off as "complicated" and expresses his frustration on Facebook. Sound possible?

Correction. What is with the random "are"? Take that out. Then stop making yourself look like an idiot posting statuses like this. Do Facebook statuses annoy anyone else, or is it just me? I could write a whole blog about it. *light bulb*

I'm a Sucker for a "Sard" Item

Okay, so I can't take credit for finding this one because I found it on failimages.com. But I just had to share it because I laugh almost every time I look at this. This is funny to me for a couple of reasons:

1). I've totally done things like this. I always twist my words around and come out saying ridiculous things. This one time I wanted to tell my friend to tuck in her pant pockets but it came out "Puck your tockets in!"

2). Even though I am also guilty of word twists, if I had written this, I totally would have noticed it and tried to fix it. I really just don't know how people could miss this mistake. Perhaps they were in a rush and didn't have time to fix it, figuring that people would know what they meant to say. Or maybe they thought it was so funny that they had to leave it as it was. Or maybe they're just dumb, who knows?

Correction: Well this is an easy one. "Sard" obviously should read "Sale." If I had done this, I would have simply covered up the writing with a piece of paper and started over. Also, as a side note, it would be helpful if they added an address or something. An arrow really isn't saying much.


This Fortune Came From One Smart Cookie.

I love fortune cookies. I also love word fails, so this was a good day for me. My boyfriend actually got this one but of course I took it for the purpose of this blog. Kid you not, I had to read this at least 3 times to figure out what the heck it was trying to say. At first I thought it was just the result of a foreign Chinese guy's bad English, but then I remembered reading in Time Magazine that some old American man in Utah writes all the fortunes for fortune cookies. Guess it's just a bad typo.

Correction: I think this is supposed to say, "What is contained in everything?" Nothing anyone can do to change it at this point. It's probably in a million different cookies distributed randomly all over the country. Hopefully everyone who gets this fortune will at least get a good laugh out of it since they were jipped of a legit fortune.
