We had to phone Hurricane Charlie and call him out on the rug over the recent brouhaha at his local law enforcement office — the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office. The office had purchased a custom rug featuring a close-up of the county’s deputy badge at a cost of $500. The rug had lent an air of authority to the Office’s floor for seven months before someone noticed that the Seal proclaimed “In Dog We Trust”. Oops.
Proofreaders everywhere were enjoying the Schadenfreude and we couldn’t let sleeping gods lie. Hurricane Charlie thought Scuppers would be bidding on the blooper rug, now being sold at auction.
Dude! We on the Big Lebowksi have been searching for YEARS for the “rug that really ties the room together” , this must be IT!
Hot diggity god, Scuppers was on the Web in a flash ready to bid beau coup biscuits. But, alas, he was barking up the wrong tree. The auction had already ended with a winning bid of $9650! Oh well, who can pick a bone with that. Dyslexics untie!
