Things that make you go "doh"

I drove by a CVS Pharmacy and on the scrolling marque was the following:

"Dose your medicine taste yucky!!!!!!!"

Please note both errors. No wonder kids fail English....

Ok I must be stupid cause I only see one error. LOL This would be why I am NOT an English teacher!

Nobody proof-reads anymore. Not even on a scrolling marque.

Patti- I wondered with the "dose" but the punctuation bugged me!

TyAnna: I agree... good luck to their English teachers!

Hecate: "dose" instead of "does" and exclamation marks instead of question marks.

Curley- I know. We had a typo on our sign at work and I pointed it out, nicely, and people were upset that I noticed the error, not that there WAS an error! Geez...

I got the "dose" one, never ever thought of the !!!!! instead of ?????.

LOL
