Courtney C. sends this along from the North Carolina state fair. Though we can't read all the text, we're impressed with the two visible goofs. She scores in the spelling and punctuation categories.
If the food won't give you a heart attack, the sign will. Bon appetit!
Update: A reader wrote asking SPOGG to include an explanation of the errors. We will do so starting now. In this photo, "chili" is spelled wrong. And they should have written 'n' instead of "n."
Use apostrophes to indicate a missing letter or letters. This is how we make contractions.
Put quotation marks around a letter or a word if you're referring to it as a letter or word itself.
For example: "Buttery" is the sort of word that sounds like what it means; "pulchritude" is not.
But you wouldn't say "Try our 'buttery' biscuits" unless you were using fake butter, which would be all kinds of wrong.
Quotation marks are widely used for emphasis, of course, but SPOGG does not care for this. It can get "annoying." And it can look "silly." See the "Blog" of "Unnecessary" Quotation Marks for more.
