“Don’t be a Brummeling Idiot!”

Invented in Hoboken: “Brummeling Idiot”

They say necessity is the “mother of invention,” and now that I think of it – a few inventions have taken place here on Hoboken411 over the past 5+ years (besides the concept of the very Authentically Local website you’re reading right now).

However, last night I spotted this absolutely idiotic set of signs on the door of that men’s clothing store uptown (their stuff is always on sale which leads you to believe the original prices are marked up even more astronomical than usual).

“Buy One Suite – Get On Free”

I can understand mistakes from the sign-maker (especially if you use the cheapest one possible), but what about the owner who taped it to the door, didn’t he read it and realize there were not one, but two errors? 33% of the words were wrong! Or is he just a “Brummeling Idiot?”

So if your friends are acting like morons this weekend, say to them “Don’t be Brummeling Idiots!”

Well it’s hard for foreigners to spell things, as a matter of fact Americans have changed the spelling of things from the correct British way to spell. I’m guessing the owner of this store it’s not from an English speaking country, i doubt an English for first language person made this mistake.

All the letters to do this correctly are there. Maybe the owner suffers from a wandering “e”?
As for the Beau Brummels…

I saw this yesterday, and laughed all the way home.
