Spelling Whiplash

red blinky sign
Hey, they had a 20% chance to get the vowel right.

When you’re driving, there are already so many distractions, and auto safety organizations are doing their best to alert us to the dangers of all of them. Unfortunately, they haven’t had the opportunity to drive by my local all-night pharmacy, and be subjected to “spelling whiplash.” This is a new condition, whose name I just coined, to describe what happens when you drive by a sign, think you see a misspelled word, and jerk your head around to look again, just to be sure. Oooh, my neck!!
