Where DO you find those gems, Tillerman? To shave or not to shave. Is that the question?

Tillerman said...

I cannot possibly reveal my sources.

But I do have a few more gems of a similar nature for future "Morans on Sundays" posts.

I love these people.

After five years in Japan I don't miss my homeland's insecurity. Spare no expense for war, but health? Oh, no!

word verif: "polimica" - coincidence? you decide.

It's discriminatory and an true outrage if this means bikini waxes won't be covered under the new plan.

sorry a not an

So, who would be Pubic Enemy No. 1 these days?

Baydog said...

Give me puberty or give me death!

Tillerman said...

These misspelled signs intrigue me - not because someone made a spelling mistake as we all do that from time to time - but because I can't quite figure how someone gets to the point of standing in public with a sign like that.

Didn't she ever notice the mistake? Didn't any of her fellow protesters notice and tell her? Doesn't she care?

Baydog said...

Funny. I'm fairly obsessed with spelling but I read the title to your post yesterday and didn't catch the mistake until I read her sign.

Tillerman said...

Yeah. It's the kind of mistake that's easy to miss, especially when the correct version has been so much part of the public discourse in the US over the last few months.

But didn't anyone in this crowd notice and have the decency to point it out to this young lady? Are they all morans?

Baydog said...

What do you have against the Irish, Tillerman?

Tillerman said...

Uh oh. I'm not going there. Some of my favorite little people are (half) Irish.

O'Docker said...

I'm glad you cleared that up.

Here's my modest proposal: That we re-brand our public education system as a socialist education. We should clearly leave it up to the free market and competition to drive prices down, as evidenced by the excellent value for money and stringent cost controls at our nation's glorious and imminently affordable private colleges and universities.

Pat said...

Aren't some of our favorite tugboats Morans? And, with modern electronic control systems, how do they compare with some of the sign caddies?

Doc Häagen-Dazs said...

Are the misspellings on these signs a deliberate ploy to suggest pseudo-populism, to disguise corporate sponsorship of the Tea Party?

Tillerman said...

It has also occurred to me Doc that all these people with the misspelled signs may not be as dumb as they look. Possible theories for why they might be deliberate misspellings include...

a) your theory. Pretending to be real people as opposed to tools of the corporations funding their "movement".

b) distancing themselves from the "liberal elite" aka as people who can spell properly and pronounce "nuclear" properly.

c) a subtle way to get people to notice and/or remember their sign. If you spot the misspelling you register it more strongly.

d) a deliberate ploy to have their signs re-published on the Internet by pedants like me who think bad spelling is funny.

You're deeper thinker than I am,, Tillerman.
