Discouraging Sign


Playground sign

The Web is replete with pictures of illiterate signs and documents. Often it is easy to identify the confusion or misconception that must have been in the mind of the writer. Today, I came upon the sign pictured above, but I have no idea what the person responsible for it was thinking. The missing periods are understandable, I suppose, but the apostrophe in AGE’S is odd in the extreme. The author had to go out of the way to create this abomination, as the apostrophe isn’t even a real apostrophe. (You can click on the image for a bigger one.)

Education in America is surely in serious trouble.

  1. I suppose you could also caption this one "earnest but ignorant."
