Broken: Misspelled flying hog

DSC01114Here's a misused apostrophe that I saw in an airport gift shop awhile back:

    This Porker Really Fly's

Can't they get a proofreader before getting the toy packaging officially printed?!

And is "Harry" in quotes because his real name is Harold?


Proofreader? I doubt it, since this toy probably is another piece of crap from China.....

I do not beleive they really care who 'Harry' may allude to, or why Flys is spelled 'Fly's'. ... The large dollar sign glittering in their eyes probably caused this error though...the same thing that seems to have caused some probalems with that one company, Enron...

Especially as Flys / Fly's should be spelt Flies

I was just going to say the same thing about the spelling. The mistake did get them a bit of extra advertisment though didnt it.
