Mary Worth 2813

Gee, Mary, maybe you could ask Google. But why don't you invest thousands of dollars and countless hours first. It really is the best way to find out.

So Ted's a good "saleman"? Guess this means he's made only one sale in his career. It must have been a doozy.

P.S. Man, how can that happen? Doesn't anybody proof this stuff?

Nice catch, Scottie. And, no, we are all they've got.

Today's Bolface Haiku is titled

"Fear Is Nothing But All You're Money Leaving Your Wallet".

Great! New succeed.
Know! Good hands!
Fear great...and!

Scottie--No one proofreads anything anymore. Seriously. In addition to the spelling error, this strip also makes a punctuation mistake that drives me absolutely crazy, the punctuation of "I wonder" statements with a question mark. Those are not questions; they are declarative statements. They require a period. Period.

Unless you’re wondering if that thing you’re doing is wondering?

I noticed “saleman” immediately. Does June do the lettering, or does someone else do this? Maybe June or whoever are trying to sabotage Baren Koy.

I’m a copy editor//proofreader and am appalled every day with the mistakes I find. Newspapers must have fired all copy editors in their compulsion to upload stuff fast.

Has Ted been holding the same muffin all week? He should have told Mary that her muffins would be “in good hand.”

Mary: "Jeff, if you put up $2 million for 5% of the Mary Muffin venture I may reconsider marriage . . . maybe."

KitKat, I'm a retail copywriter and I proof store ads, too. Our graphics person repeatedly created ads with the word "points" abbreviated "pnts" - drove me nuts!
One year our office Christmas party began early so I started sipping wine at my desk and uploaded the last two products on my list. Usually I check my work once it's online, but I was eager to get downstairs for the party. The next morning I checked. I was horrified to see the errors. Never again.

No, Mary, your muffins aren't on the line. Your buns are on the line.

How are salesmen (or salemen) risk takers? They sell stuff. Zero risk.
