The colon?

Um, the person writing the last sentence originally spoke and wrote in German?

I've seen far worse.

Me have already viewed much more badly.

Apostrophe crime of the most common variety: 'Its/It's'
4
The what that belongs to the bad choices is being done.

What @3 said. And Bethany, with regard to your final sentence, there are many much less awkward ways to avoid ending sentences with prepositions. For instance, "What is the world coming to, bitches?"
6
@#3 More often seen the other way around - as with iOS's autocorrect, which insists there's no such word as "its".

@#5
As Churchill famously minuted to an aide that had corrected his prose to remove a dangling preposition: "This is an imposition up with which I will not put!"
8
"Repellent..." vs. "repellant..."
9
Meh. I still smoked Winston cigarettes. And, I'd probably still eat the burgers.

I just can't get worked up over "it's" vs. "its". It's such a trivial error, and very easy to make even if you know the rule.

However, you can't just smoosh two sentences together with a comma and call them one. That's fucked up.
11
It's the apostasy at the end and the collocate in the middle, not to mention the ardvaarkial propositions in the first third.

Jesus.

The missing apostrophe is the least of its worries. Everything about that sentence is terrible, from its construction to its conceit. "Helping people feel good about [stroke, heart disease, and type II diabetes]." Jerks!

If you can spot more than one error in their original sentence, you're twice as likely to fry something in duck fat that ought not be or add truffle oil to something that never asked for it.

I do not require that my burger be prepared by someone with perfect grammar. I'd almost prefer it not be.

And since it took me a second, one thousand points to @1.
15
There looser's!
16
Your so write. There basic tenant is wrong, but there unphased.
17
People like you discussed me. You are all diluted.

Slick enough for the mall...don't make me laugh!

So now the Mall is just as good as the City!

I'll save my train fare for a fine beer and have a great burger at Wild Wheat or Cal's American at Kent Station, thank you very much...or maybe just get a great weinersnitchel at the Berliner Pub in Renton (can you say larger...real german larger?)

The indisputable mistake is their sign. Bad bad bad!

The burgers are mistaken mistakes but not indisputably so.

lol! ur so right, omg;!;!!!!

@18: Grösser. But I'm not sure what your point is.
22
Comma splice.
