More from the search request files

Someone stumbled across the Proofreader’s Hall of Shame by searching for bad grammar in advertisements.

Now this wouldn’t be so bad (hey, it’s even on topic!), except for the fact that my site was only found after Google corrected this person’s spelling. The original search, you see, was bad grammer in adversitments

And that’s not all. Within hours of one another, I received two searches on a common theme: one for TRIGGER HAPPY TV RINGTONE, another for trigger happy ringtone. Let’s just hope they also want it to poke fun at annoying mobile phone users, rather than to earnestly become annoying mobile phone users.

Last but not least, someone did an image search for “your stupid”. What image did this person find? This typographical error from an IHOP ad, which I doubt helped him to correct his grammar.
