Terys cantt spel ... % niether cann teh cabel compeny

There's a store in the area -- Terry's Grocery in Smiths Station, Alabama -- that runs ads on local cable.

Somebody can't spell. Probably an Auburn graduate.

Want to see the whole commercial? No? Then skip to about 20 seconds into this:

I'm not sure who's responsible for this, but I blame both the grocery story and the cable company.

If the store sent the copy with those misspellings, then they're stupid and are to blame. And so it the cable company because they're airing it despite the obvious mistake. Stupid cable company.

If, though, the cable company made those mistakes, then, of course, the cable company is stupid for not fixing it. And the store is stupid for paying the cable company to make them look like a bunch of asses.

I'm sure all the people involved in this are nice. Okay, I have no idea if they're nice or not.

When you hear people from the south say about someone else, "Bless their heart," this is what we're talking about.


  1. Basil, you're thinkin' too hard here. Just go on over there to Terys and get you some of that cheap Boston Butt.

    It's on Mullins Road. I'll GoobleMap it for you if you can't find it.

  2. BTW, $0.59 per lb is pretty dang cheap for Misisippi sweet taters.

    Just sayin'...

  3. But what about "swet" potatoes? I'm not sure if that's a good price or not.

  4. Go ahead on and get 'em, Basil. If you're disappointed, you can feed 'em to the dogs, or take 'em back to Tery.
