Deep down, I wish I had been an English major. Nowhere is that more clear than on my morning commute.
I am slighly distressed when I see the sign from the casino: “Lose track of time. And inhibitions.” I realize that I wasn’t keeping track of my inhibitions in the first place.
I see the sign “Prairie Rehab” above a patch of grass near the overpass, and I stiffle laughter at the imagined, crack-smoking prairie dogs in my head.
But I cannot tolerate the bank slogan : “Expect more easy.” Now, “Expect more. Easy!” would have been fine. While ineffective in an ad, “expect more easily” would at least have been grammatically correct. But this verb needs a noun for an object, and “easy” is not a noun. What were they thinking? Do they not know that people with degrees in this stuff are looking for jobs?
