Apparently this machine likes the One campaign and the Obama campaign. Me too, but I will also accept other things... Thanks, Marc.

They also don't have access to the tv remote (or what my grandpa called "the changer").

I would hope you've loosed your money before you try to put it into the machine. Why is the difference between "lose" and "loose" so hard for people?

Gilahi,
Those people are loosely educated.

Pink said...

I know so many people who mess up that "lose" and "loose". *sigh* These poor illiterate souls.

I agree with eilbeback.

And what's with the random capital letters -- Machine, Bills, Accept?

As an English teacher, I agree with the comments on loose vs. lose -- I can't get it through to anyone, no matter what I do. Maybe we just need to change the spellings? Or keep loose the same, and make lose into 'looz.'

What a useless sign... clearly this machine only works for people named Bill, and apparently only once.

Chris Huff said...

hahahaha "One" dollar bills.

This "sign" is "nuts".

Oh god yes... I'm so not surprised that the all too common extra o in "lose" showed up in one these.. it drives me crazy too.

The problem with "lose" and "loose" is probably that the latter looks like the former is pronounced and they are both valid to spellcheckers.

Like many people who can't do basic arithmetic without a calculator, some people cannot use a computer without a spell checker.

Obviously, it accepts slugs and counterfeit dollars, along with, or instead of, real money.
