    Grammar fails: Your photos

    What do they do with pizza?

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     When Neil Levin spotted a pizzeria awning with a misspelled word along his walk to work in New York City, he thought, “Come on. No one from the writer to the person who took the order to the printer to the installer to the customers noticed this word was misspelled?" Levin, a creative director in advertising, says bad grammar really gets under his skin. “I think that texting, emailing and even online news articles seem to get a pass from the public when it comes to grammar. I can’t understand why bad grammar is acceptable online to anyone. No matter the medium, grammar should be correct.”
    - zdan, CNN iReport producer

    So someone came up with the idea for this awning, someone printed it, someone installed it, someone looked at it again to approve the installation and yet no one noticed the mistake? Not to mention, there are three exclamation marks preceded by an extra space.
