School’s Yearbook Is Riddled With Spelling & Grammar Mistakes [VIDEO]

Does it seem like the world has forgotten about the importance of spelling, grammar, and punctuation? I see mistakes everywhere. Signs, menus, websites — it seems that nothing is immune.

An Orlando-area high school has egg on its face (That’s right, “its” not it’s!), after publishing a 339 page yearbook that’s riddled with mistakes. There are spelling and grammar errors on almost every page, and some pages contain numerous mistakes.

Some of the examples from Winter Park High School’s yearbook are cringe-worthy.

“Three stunts where done and the crown was in awe”

“Once our coached gave us out pep talk i was able to get in the water and warm up.”

One of the yearbook’s editors sent the following statement to WKMG-TV:

“Due to our lack of funds for the yearbook program, we were forced to squeeze two months of work into two weeks, which explains the copious amount of errors in the book. As an editor, I do admit the book could have been a hundred times better, but as stated in a slip we single handedly place in each book, it is a student-made book and everyone was well aware of that when purchasing it.”

If you’re still reading this, you probably noticed that the word “number” should have been used instead of the word “amount.” (“…which explains the copious number of errors in the book.” The punctuation also seems to be a little shaky.

The Grammar Police’s job is never done.
