Not To Be Trusted With Knives











{August 7, 2008}   Unpossible

Kalev and I were going for a post-dinner walk around English Bay, eating our post-dinner ice cream from Marble Slab1, when we saw this2:

Me fail English? Thats unpossible!

Me fail English? That's unpossible!

Alternative captions for this photo include:

  • Is it unhumble of me to correct your grammar?
  • This cardboard’s unperfection is its lack of spellcheck.

1Mine, I will hasten to add, was misleadingly called “Double Dark Chocolate” when it really should have been called “regular ol’ chocolate with some bits o’ chocolate in it.” If it had just been called “chocolate,” I would have been fine with it, but the name wrote a cheque that its flavour couldn’t cash.

Kalev says:

You failed to mention we did go looking for a felt pen to correct the unperfection that was the grammar of the sign.

Also, one generally humbles oneself before some imaginary flesh-eating zombie lordJesus, although I suppose with all the archaic phrasings in the Bible we could let that one go. Although like, zomg, humble 2 Jesus FTW!!!11
