Mask We HaveAs submitted to the English Fail Blog (I’ll link to it if they choose to publish it), this sign I saw in my local CVS drug store really made me scratch my head.

“MASK WE HAVE!” it says. “HAVE MASK .99 FOR ONE[,] 25.00 FOR A CASE.”

What mask[s]? And what language was this written in?

I am tempted to ask for a case of the mask they have [?], but on the other hand I’m a little afraid to find out what they’re talking about. Are these anti-swine-flu masks, or used Hillary Clinton Halloween masks, or Israeli gas masks? I’m so confused!

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
