The 50 Typos, 50 States contest is in full swing! You’ve still got two and a half months to find a typo and send it in to firstname.lastname@example.org, and if you get a correction (by permission of course), the prize pack you could win will be packed full of even more awesomeness (plus, since fewer people get corrections, your odds of winning will be better).
Before we add more to the map, I’d like to point out that, of the 52 eligible participation zones (I’d say states, but DC and Canada aren’t), brave heroes fighting on behalf of the league have participated in a full half of them already. That’s right. With two states that have gone green, and twenty-two states, DC, and Canada all having gone yellow, only 26 states remain stuck behind a red typo. And now we’re going to break into that other half.
Yes, after all that fanfare about changing the colors of the states, however, I can’t help but notice we’ve got a pretty good stream of typos flowing in from states where at least one has already been found. Thus, I feel it’s a good time to remind not to let your state’s yellow or even green status stop you from playing our game! No matter what color your state is, if you find a typo, you’re in the contest.
About as far from that one as you can get, Susan S. shares one from Seagrove Beach in Florida.
You know, there’s a way in which this one could have almost made sense. It’s the owners’ property, but then it’s not the guests’ property–they’re just guests.
If those errant apostrophes didn’t already crush your soul, well, brace yourself for two photos from two Karens in two states…with one tragically common mistake. Karen L. in Kansas City, Kansas sent in this one, compliments of the government:
Sometimes this job hurts.
