#ProofingMatters, No. 004

 In this week’s edition of #ProofingMatters, I present not one but THREE errors, all from the Kansas City Star. 

First, there was this omission of the word “the.”  

Luckily, I was able to find the missing “the” a few paragraphs later…it was hiding in a sentence that should have included the word “to” instead. 😣  

Finally, nobody was filled with joy after reading this sentence. 

And, as a special bonus, I give you this:

During the CNN GOP Town Hall earlier this week, Donald Trump  continued saying he was self-funding his own campaign. Anderson Cooper called him out saying “you solicit donations on your website,” Trump responded, “No, I don’t.”

Well, Mr. Trump, I checked your website. Maybe YOU should check your website.

 

#ProofingMatters, No. 003

From business marquees, to presidential candidates’ tweets, the last few weeks had some struggles.

First, there was this sign spotted by a friend in Oklahoma. I don’t want to say that Oklahoma has an education problem, after all, that’s where I earned my education, but the state is drastically cutting funding for education. Maybe they should rethink that strategy.

You’re doing it wrong Mazzio’s. Also, this is why Oklahoma should be spending MORE on education, not less. H/T to Katy Jones for the image.

Then, there was this gaffe from KMBC in Kansas City. THE Iowa State? The Iowa State what?!

THE Iowa State? The Iowa State what?

 
This one from ESPN might be one of my favorites, though. Instant awesome: ESPN sends an update about a spelling bee…misspells spelling bee.
#ProofingMatters

That’s the wrong “bee.”

 

 And then there’s this. There are so many things wrong with it, I don’t know where to start. First, that’s not how you spell Wichita. Second, I’m assuming the Pachyderm Club is a Republican thing, but your friend lives at the club? Why? If he’s such a great businessman, why doesn’t he live in a house?

So. Many. Questions. 

#ProofingMatters

So. Many. Questions.

 
Finally, there’s this. This was sent to me by a friend. Color bowels, huh? Uh, you might wanna get that checked out by a doctor. Shout out to Melissa Davis for the find. 

#ProofingMatters

I’m not a doctor, but you might want to get that checked.

Keep proofing, Friends. It matters.
