Minor and Major
Two grammar things that caught my attention in today's paper:
In an Associated Press article by Justin Pope on on-line college courses, he includes the sentence "The first prototype was made with a Christmas ornament." Shouldn't that be "Christmas tree ornament?" Bugged me.
An ad for a "gentleman's club" included the following:
BRING THIS AD FOR YOUR CHOICE OF:
ONE ITEM OFF OF ARE LUNCH MENU
The entirely unnecessary colon is bad enough. But mistaking "are" for "our?" Seriously?
