Wall of Shame

I try not to point this stuff out too often, because it happens all the time and I don't want people to get sick of it. But there's been three horrible entries into the Wall of Shame recently, and I thought them worthy of note here:

1. In a beading magazine, a full-page ad with inch-high letters advertising "SWAROVSKI AUSTRAIN CRYSTALS."

2. On a huge vinyl banner outside the hospital, the word "OCCURED." Granted, this was a banner expressing its condolences to the community regarding the shootings last month, so I felt like a huge jerk when this was the first thing I noticed.

3. A typo in a professor's email signature, which I would usually ignore, except that it proudly declared that he was the "Edito-in-Chief, Systematic Biology" (a prestigious scientific journal).
