They Were Doomed From the Start

                                            Honeyman took this picture where he works.

They have these signs all over the outside of the building.
An old lady that worked there came in and started going on and on about it. Honeyman hadn't seen it since he works nights, but sure enough- there it was.

I have said it time and time again.
Spell check only goes so far. You do need to know how to spell what you are trying to spell. Or at least somewhat.
Because, if it is a word, it is going to say everything is fine.

Paring is a word.
It's a type of knife.

Somehow I don't think they care about No Paring.
The prep cooks could be in trouble otherwise.
They care about No Parking.

Honeyman says because of the way this place is run, a minimum of 3-4 people would have had to have seen it and OKed it.
The boss looked right at it and said it was fine.

I don't know if bad spelling is a good way to get hired here.
It does fit with the whole stupid people being the ones at the top theory.

See, Honeyman is a good speller and and that's why he'll never make it at that place.

Oh, and why were they doomed from the start?
The place was destined to have many stupid people working there because of their name.

Prairie Meadows- meaning grassy field, grassy field.


By the way, I would like to thank Al from Penwasser Place for selection in the Underwear Meme.
I will get to it in the next few days.


  1. Hi there, I'm picking you up from Al's panty blog. Glad to meet you. :)

  2. LOL. I can't believe no one has noticed. I would've been right on that.

  3. Hahah! That's really horrible. And the name of the place is just too much.

  4. Laila, Thanks for stopping by. Nice to meet you too I'll be over to check out your blog.
    I know, Honeyman told her to come back and tell the department heads, but it was still up all weekend.

    Mama, It is. But, I know there is still somebody out there that still thinks it's a great name.

  5. Oh, the stupidity. It's hilarious and embarrassing. I'd be tempted to use liquid paper to add a "K".

  6. Oh, very funny! I like to point out spelling errors to Bud wherever we go. I blame it on tweeting, texting, and a general laziness in our world.

  7. That is funny. I once saw an obit of a prominent citizen here in Alabama.
    It said he "assed" away in his sleep. I spewed coffee on my newspaper when I read it.

  8. Robyn, Someone should be embarrassed.

    Sue, Next time you are in the Des Moines area stop out there. I am sure you will find a few things spelled wrong.

    OT, I know.

    Life, Oh my. That is funny!

    Tracy, That's what I thought.

  9. Maybe they didn't want people slipping on potato peels when they were unloading...?
    Or maybe they're stupid.
    BTW, I drive people crazy whenever I notice spelling errors. But, I cnat hpel it. Speling erors mkae me unts.
    It's a curse.

  10. If they spell it wrong can you park there?

  11. Tony, Good point. :) It probably wouldn't be advisable.
