Editor’s Corner: April/May Contest!

April has just begun and it seems like a good time for another Editor’s Corner contest. In the past few weeks, I’ve received (and used) some funny photos you’ve submitted. Rather than having you write Tom Swifties or mondegreens for me, how about we switch it up a little and have you send photos?

What I’m looking for is poor punctuation, bad spelling, and atrocious advertising. I’d also settle for some fun and proper uses of English if you can find any. Just remember, the language should be tame enough for me to publish these photos at work.

Who is eligible? All recipients of Editor’s Corner who reside in the United States. If you get someone new to sign up for Editor’s Corner, I will enter your name twice! (Once for your photo and once for the new reader.)

What do you have to do? Take a photo as decribed or shown above that will make us laugh, and send it to kchurch.

What do I win? We have two prizes: t-shirts with the messages pictured below.

When do I have to turn in my photos? Well, I’m going to give you a nice long entry period since I’ll be out of the office for parts of April and May. How about Friday, May 13 at noon (PT)? That gives you over a month to keep your eyes open and your cameras (or phones) ready for all sorts of situations. During my vacation in Greece, I’m hoping to get a few of my own poorly translated Greek menu photos to share with you!

Why should I do this? Because it is fun! Because a few of you out there do it anyway! Because you might win a t-shirt!
