Mispl-aced Hyphen

I was walking up First Avenue this past Friday, when I saw this sign at the corner of East 9th Street:

Misplaced hyphen.

This sign is outside a popular coffee shop called The Bean.

I wonder if the chalker was instructed to put the hyphen in the wrong place? Maybe that's how the copy sheet was prepared? In my experience, copy sheets should never be used for formatting.

Pushing the grammar envelope… in the East Village Today!

  1. neither the mcmann and tate agency nor don draper support that kind of copy!

    I bet the copyranter would have a field day with that. :-)
