Grammar Police on Patrol

I have never been to Toasties in Union Square. In general, I don’t usually trust an establishment that uses the Comic Sans font in their logo. But mainly, I don’t patronize Toasties because of the grammar crime it commits on the sidewalk of Union Square West. This banner has been hanging by Toasties’ outdoor seating for nearly a year:

A Brooklyn Lager sounds mighty tempting… especially when accompanied by a lovely view of Union Square Park. But until that God-awful banner is taken down or corrected, Toasties is on my list.

Toasties, YOU’RE in New York. Stop embarassing us.

    i hate it when people say “X and I” indiscriminately, such as “send it to X and I.” yuck!

  3. Reminds me of Port 41 where they advertise DARTS on their awning… right next to BIKINI, one of which I have never seen that bar.

  4. That is terrible. But it’s still a step up from “Ur.”

    It makes my eyes bleed.

  6. We thank you for standing up for grammar. But the stance agains Comic Sans is truly the stance of a hero. Comic Sans is crime against humanity.

    I’m on the other side of the world and I wish I could fly over just to rip that damn thing up. The misuse of apostrophes in society is a much bigger crime than the rampant use of Comic Sans.

    Someone has since written an “e” on the sign.

    Good grammar sir,

    It is not supposed to say [You’re]. It is supposed to say [Yours].
