    Another eerie reminder that proof reading is going the way of the shoe cobbler.


  2. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 9:44 am:

    “Oh dear”


  3. - thunderspirit - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 9:44 am:

    This is one tradition I’d very much like to break.

    That said, I, for one, welcome our offical overlords.


  4. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 9:45 am:

    I guess DoIT forgot to upgrade Spell Check?


  5. - Skeptic - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 9:53 am:

    “I guess DoIT forgot to upgrade Spell Check?” They had trouble scheduling a meeting for the Steering Committee.


  6. - Bruce (no not him) - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 9:57 am:

    It has now become a tradition. Just hide a few, here and there, and make it a contest to find them all.


  7. - JS Mill - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 9:57 am:

    Isn’t “Business” misspelled? Shouldn’t it be “Bidness”?


  8. - Hynes Guy - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 10:09 am:

    Better than O’Fecal…


  9. - Keyrock - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 10:11 am:

    Do they get partial credit for correctly spelling “Illinois,” “state,” and “fair?”


  10. - SpfdNewb - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 10:19 am:

    -It has now become a tradition. Just hide a few, here and there, and make it a contest to find them all.-

    A state fair version of find Abe in Springfield, I’m surprisingly OK with this.

    Pritzker’s crack team at work


  12. - Rich Miller - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 10:35 am:

    ===Pritzker’s crack team===

    BPIA™


  13. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 10:42 am:

    “But do you like the colors?”

    “The seal is like a watermark. That’s fancy”

    “After 9 emails and a PowerPoint, I think we nailed the font”

    “I think we forgot the 3rd ‘s’ in business”

    “We added a blue ribbon, a piece of flair at the fair, if you will”

    #OhDear #YouHadOneJob


  14. - Ok - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 10:47 am:

    I believe the Offical is actually the state bird of New Mexico


  15. - Lost In Chicago - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 10:48 am:

    Is it pronounced “Off-fecal?” Cause with all of horse, cows, pigs, etc at the fair, it might be fitting.


  16. - SAP - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 10:56 am:

    Speling is hard.


  17. - Northsider - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 11:35 am:

    That’s offal…


  18. - Spelling - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 11:39 am:

    You have to expect this with Team Organzing


  19. - Blue Dog Dem - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 11:45 am:

    Any reports on attendance?


  20. - Rich Miller - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 11:46 am:

    ===Any reports on attendance? ===

    Purely anecdotal, but the place was packed Saturday. Perfect weather.


  21. - King Louis XVI - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 12:42 pm:

    No one on JB’s high-paid communications staff can spell?


  22. - Sayitaintso - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 12:43 pm:

    It is a capital offcene for so many of these jerks to still get paid and have a plegoria of mis-writing. They should be burned at the steak.


  23. - What's in a name? - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 1:07 pm:

    Could we bring back the dunce cap and have the employee responsible stand next to his or her work for the duration of the event. Do that once and I suspect the spelling will improve.

    Oh, and we do need to spend more on education …


  24. - DarkDante - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 1:51 pm:

    ==BPIA™==

    Is this abreviation “Best Pritzker in America?” /snark


  25. - Rich Miller - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 1:52 pm:

    ===Is this abreviation===

    Best Paid In America. Wordslinger invention.


  26. - Oswego Willy - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 1:53 pm:

    Best… Paid… In… America.

    (tm)

    A - Wordslinger - special.


  27. - JoanP - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 2:39 pm:

    =They misused the word “marquis” for the second year in a row…=

    Probably a cut-and-paste job. All the more reason to double-check.

    =It is a capital offcene for so many of these jerks to still get paid and have a plegoria of mis-writing. They should be burned at the steak. =

    I believe you mean *capitol* offcene. ;-) Pun most definitely intended.

    But I am really in no position to grouse. I found myself splitting an infinitive earlier today.


  28. - Earnest - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 2:43 pm:

    As RuPaul says, Reading is fundamental.


  29. - revvedup - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 3:08 pm:

    Oh, D’oh. Here we D’oh again. Maybe Illinois is just plain jinxed. I mean, C’mon now. Can you imagine the carnage of a Statewide spelling contest for adults? “Bring me your pour, you’re tired…”


  30. - State of DenIL - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 3:25 pm:

    Sounds like a good fair. Nice job by the organizers to nail it on the obligatory gaffes and blunders.


  31. - Demoralized - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 3:56 pm:

    All of the golf cart placards are being confiscated and will not be replaced.


  32. - LINK - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 4:38 pm:

    Sounds like they need to update their spell-check software. Que the professionals at DoIT…


  33. - Dotnonymous - Monday, Aug 12, 19 @ 4:52 pm:

    How will Brad Cole know if they are offical or official?
