Intentionally Misspelled Words That Drive You Crazy
On Fridays, I post a series of unrelated questions meant to spark conversation in the comments. Answer one, answer all, respond to someone else's reply, whatever you want. On to this week's topics of discussion...
1. Many stores switch around a few letters in their names to stand out (or because they couldn't get a good domain name). Kids becomes kidz. Time becomes tyme. KidsTime becomes KidzTyme. Are there any intentionally misspelled — or unintentionally, I guess — business names that make you reach for your red pen?
2. A Michigan woman is suing the distributors of Drive because, as The Week reported, "it contains less driving than the trailer would suggest." (She also claims the movie "promoted criminal violence against members of the Jewish faith.") Let's use her trailer confusion as a jumping off point. Is there any movie whose preview initially gave you an entirely different picture of the film?
3. If TV characters competed in an elaborate Fictional Jeopardy! tournament, who do you think would come out on top?
4. Time for another edition of What Are You Reading? Do you recommend it?
