Temp(ered) Pay: The other week, a New York production company advertised for an office temp. The ad didn't specify the dough offered, but it apparently wasn't anything to write home about. "Pay commiserate with experience," promised the copy. Gee, that bad, huh?

Check Please: The ads that the Washington D.C. public school system put on 75 city buses recently were supposed to fight truancy. "Go To Class, It' a Blast!" said the plus-sized copy, from which the `s' needed for the contraction was sadly omitted. See what happens if you don't tay in chool?
