Return of the Spellin' Felon

It has been almost 2 years since I last saw signs of him, but the Spellin' Felon has returned and I found him across town.

He was last spotted in Lewisville, TX making signage problems that can be seen here and here, but as I was driving back from the Jim Gaffigan show on Friday, I saw he has moved up to a new grade and a new town about 40 miles SE of Lewisville.

I guess even though his spelling leaves something to be desired, he was able go graduate up in grade to make it to Junior High after his stint at Marshall Durham Middle School.

I don't know what is worse, that they spelled council with two Qs or that they didn't at least put the Us after it so they rule of U following Q was at least followed.

I guess I will have to keep a keen eye out for more of this hoodlum's escapades.

That is all,

I'm not sure it is wise to post about misspellings when the post itself has many of them....

I spellchecked this post and just reread it and still don't see any misspellings. Now my other posts are pretty bad but I tried to make sure I didn't put any in this one.

Third paragraph - go=to, Junior High should not be capitalized (not spelling, but still a grammatical issue).

Fourth paragraph - they=the

You may try to say that these are typos and thus shouldn't count as misspellings, but the fact is that the correct word you were trying to use is incorrectly spelled as a different correctly spelled word.

I can't argue I used the wrong words cause I did. and Junior High just sounded better but I will conceed that it was wrong.

However, all words were spelled correctly. Had the Grammer Hammer showed up and I wrote a post about him, I could see the argument but I have no misspelled words in the post.
