Yes, I admit, I DO Delight in Evil Every Now and Again


Okay, aside from the fact that this is sheer tramp stamp FAILURE, not to mention the unflattering pucker happening there at the top of the crack, there is also a typo in the tattoo, or an errant freckle, I can't be sure. Nonetheless, what does this say about me that I cannot stop staring at it? Furrowing my brow to see if I can't spot more errors? That love is patient and kind, but that I am not?
And while we're on the subject: I cannot stand it when I see judgment spelled judgement. That's just how judgy I am. The first 'e' is superfluous, people (unless, of course, you are British and going to the theatre), and here I am speaking directly to Perez Hilton who I am pretty sure is not British.
Fact: I once went into an orchid kiosk at the mall to tell the shopkeeper that "Hawaiian" was misspelled on her awning. She kicked me out. Mahalo to you, too, "Hawaiin" Orchid Lady.
But the thing that undoubtedly sucks the most about delighting in finding grammatical errors is that we all live in glass houses, and yet I cannot stop. The stone is just so satisfyingly smooth here in my hand.

"There is no limit to it's faith." Uggghhh! One of my biggest pet peeves is "it's" versus "its". I love when you make me laugh, though.

Oh goody! So I'm not the only one who is completely rubbed the wrong way to "there is no limits to it's faith." GAH!!!

Full disclosure: Of course this is coming from the woman with a tattoo of a dolphin and the Chinese word for water on her ankle. At least I hope it says water. I blame 1994 (the entire year). Like I said, glass houses (are filled with closets housing regret)...

zakary said...

That is such a terrible tattoo!

A girl I worked with at the bar got "Beauty is Pain" down her rib cage last summer. Like in HUGE letters. WTF does that even mean?

Aartee said...

ummm I can't stop staring...this is a bit much I think!

Misplaced Country Girl said...

And this is why we all love you! Go ahead and throw the stone!

Vanessa said...

I'm going to try to find typos in your posts from now on :-) Glass houses...

Petunia Face said...

Agh! That's why I was afraid of posting this! Because you will find many errors in my posts...

Minxy Mimi said...

Yikes! I am sorry that you have to deal with my comments... I am quite the bad speller!
But that tramp stamp is hilarious... so ugly, yet so pure... hahahaha

Melanie said...

I'm lauging so hard. Who tattoos a bible verse on their ass? Really? Please. Throw that stone!

Shannon said...

Grammar aside, nothing says "thank you Jesus" quite like the bible in ink directly above the crack.

Megan said...

The one that really bothers me, and is in evidence ALL OVER THE PLACE is the use of "there's" instead of "there are" it's just shoddy grammar all around.

Jenn said...

Delighting in evil? Me too, friend. Me, too.

I had a grammar meltdown the other day, and I had to share. It's here in my blog.

Sarah's Fab Day said...

The you probably despise me with my quick typing and no proof reading. Bad, bad me. Throw some stones it's therapeutic.

suzanne said...

that tattoo makes me "loose" my mind....nuff said about my biggest pet peeve in the spelling/grammar world

Sarah Danielle: Jeune Marie said...

BAHHAHAHAHAHA oh man. Awesome.

pve design said...

I am so not patient with grammatical errors. Kind to mine but not so to others. Go figure.
Launch that rock, Samson & Goliath style.

Katie said...

I hear ya! I'm an editor, and it drives me nuts when I'm looking at a menu, or an advertisement, or a billboard, or anything along those lines and see a typo!

Maggie May said...

hee hawww

amber {daisy chain} said...

wow - I don't know how to describe that tat, but the fact that you read it word for word makes me laugh. Call me about Sunday, ok?

Annie Empiric said...

Wind 'er up and lets play ball! Grammar isn't really my thang but I do have a terrible tramp stamp all my own. It is supposed to be a shield with a crown in it (for my last name Crowninshield) but it looks more like a harp inside a music scroll. I should blog about it sometime so people (like you and I) can re-post it and make fun of me.

Susan said...

Shouldn't line 5 read "perseveres"? Yeah, I'm an editor, too. :)

Petunia said...

Acrossed! That one will make my head implode and force me to bite through my tongue to keep from being the rude corrector. I think it's pretty funny when a tattoo has spelling errors. It serves them right especially when it's a really dumb one. I'm sure God is looking dowen at His good word inked across the top of her butt and is very porud that he created humans. Yup, sure He is!

Petunia Face said...

Susan! YOU'RE SO RIGHT! Oh my God, I'm a little bit in love with you right now. Line 5 SHOULD read "perseveres!"

Aggggghhh! :)

JackeeG4glamorous said...

WTF, all these comments and not one of you mentioned that her ass crack looks dirty, like she hadn't completely wiped properly.

Now who's living in a glass house? Yikes, I'm shutting my curtains right now.

Patois said...

I paid far too much attention to the words to notice a dirty crack. Priorities, I guess!

Your Ill-fitting Overcoat said...

That is the worst tattoo choice/placement ever. Placment? Just kidding. I will basically never mock anyone's spelling/grammatical errors and secretly think it's weird and silly when other people do. I mean, it's just language, y'all! And ain't none of us perfect.

I can't wait until she gets fat (and you know she will). Perhaps they'll use her skin post morton for a Fine Corinthean Leather Settee?
