Copy Busters [Part 1]

Welcome to Copy Busters. This is where I get to let my inner grammar Nazi shine through. For the good of the human race, this is me correcting life's many typos. Boom.

Uri/nil – Take a look at this ad for the recruitment agency, VHC Online. Read it. It’s blatantly obvious that it’s targeted at women. The content, the colour... All signs lead to this very obvious conclusion. Which is confusing... When you consider the fact that I saw it here:

God Boobs – This one has been busted before by the legends over at Mojodojo, but it was the first time I’d seen the ad – so I’m including it. For those who don’t know, the girl is FHM model, Genevieve Morton, and the ad is for the sunblock brand, Tropitone. Oh, and in case you’re wondering what the bust is all about...

God: 1. A holy man; a guru 2. An incarnation of a god in human form.
Goddess: 1. A female deity 2. A woman who is adored for her beauty.

Definitely Not Regular – If you’d like to witness this one for yourself, you can check it out at the fish and chips shop on the Fanwalk across from my office. Quality spelling... Although, to be fair, the people in that shop don’t even look human – let alone English.

Irony Truck – Okay, so technically this isn’t a typo, but it’s still pretty funny. Would you hire this guy to tow your car?

Can’t You C? – There are high dosages of fail in this one. No further comment is needed. Check it out at 2 Oceans Bac(k)packers on lower Long Street, Cape Town.

Disgrace – This is a test. Somewhere on this Heat magazine cover, there’s a lone copy error. Leave your answer in the comment section below. If you get it right I’ll give you a Grammar Nazi high five.
