Grammar Cop: Say It With Flowers

bokays.jpg
Defendant: Cabot’s Florist, Long Island.
Count 1: Misdemeanor spelling.
Count 2: Reckless disregard for the nomenclature of one’s own profession; a misdemeanor.
Count 3: Displaying said error on a double-sided sign in a high-traffic venue.
Count 4: Presumably going to and from work and not noticing this.
Report: While engaged in a search for the local Salvation Army chapter, Officer “Mighty Rerun” of the Long Island Grammar Constabulary spotted the transgression in the Patchogue/Medford area of Route 112. No chase was necessary – as signs do not move – and the incident was captured on digital media.
Fine: $175, delivered the next day if you order before 10am.
