Stop the dreaded scourge of 70s reproductions!
« on: May 08, 2010, 01:17:35 PM »
"Quarantee" them!  I could tell from looking at it that it was a bad case of "70s repro", but just to make sure, I asked for a picture of the bottom.  I gasped when my suspicions were confirmed - 70s REPRO!!!.  I quickly closed the browser window, lest that dreaded disease infect my collection of healthy specimens!

No pun intended, of course. These common spelling errors show up even in CNN.com.

Humans are humans, but it takes one to run a spell checker.

Ugh, I see these atrocities all the time.  Always for an arm and a leg, I wouldn't take one unless given to me.
I am a lineman for the county and I drive the main roads. Searchin' in the sun for another overload.  I hear you singin' in the wires, I can hear you through the whine, and the Witchita Lineman is still on the line.

I got a western electric version @ goodwill for $3, and I don't even know why I bought it!

Probably cause it was $3.00. I also will buy "crap" if it is cheap.
