Super Hunting Gun

Posted 25 February 2006

Have you ever been confronted with blatant English errors? I know I have, and they disgust me. Here are some marketing lines, reproduced here verbatim, that were sprinkled liberally around the packaging of a plastic gun I saw while shopping at a Halloween store with Amanda:

  • Super Hunting Gun (that was the name of the product)

  • Super gun

  • Gun Bluster XTO

  • Every styles fully wonderful!

  • Grand perfect!

It made me so mad I almost hired a ninja. After all, the purpose of the ninja is to flip out and kill people.
