Bad Grammar Not A Good Defense

Jeff Deck and Benjamin Herson pleaded guilty August 11th to using a marker and liquid white-out to correct a sign in the Grand Canyon National Park that was filled with grammatical and spelling errors.

They were fined $3,035 for repair costs to the sign and sentenced to a year of probation, during which time they may not enter ANY national park or modify ANY public signs.

Like the rest of us who cringe when we see those signs with misspelled words and grammatical gaffes, Deck and Herson will have to be content with shaking their heads in disgust or laughing and making fun of the language-challenged sign makers.

And after they pay all that money to "repair" the sign, it'll probably still contain errors...

That's why I just take photos of the bad signs and post them online as examples of stupidity. LOL
