Here’s My Beef

There is a serious grammatical pet peeve of mine in this poster.

Of course I’m not going to come right out and say it…what’s the fun in that?

    Is it the abbreviation of “and” as ‘n?

    The journalism grad in me doesn’t like the “Made to order, just the way you like it” – that’s two sentences, put a period in there.

    Needs a comma after frozen. Or set “never frozen” between m-dashes.

  3. Matt Forbeck Says:

    The conjunctive letter between hot and juicy should have an apostrophe on both sides to show the missing letters. Also, there should be a comma after frozen to properly set the appositive.

  4. Princess Alethea Says:

    Matt & Phillip are right — the ‘n snagged me first.

    Diana picked up what bothered me later…that stupid lacking comma after frozen.

    But yeah. Kind of horrible all around, right? And people get paid for this??

    Great, now I’m hungry.

  6. Madeleine Robins Says:

    And shouldn’t the apostrophe before the “n” face the other way? (Blanking on the correct term.)

    Duncan, I think you subconsciously inserted the final “it” in the last statement (I can’t really justify calling it a sentence.) Like requires an object, as it is a transitive verb.
