Keep E in Mind

The cartoon I came across in USA Today
You know the drill: I keep an eye out for mistakes, and when I find one, I share it with you. Well, I'm pumped! I spotted one in this political cartoon, which was published in USA Today. Keep your eye on keep in President Obama's speech bubble; it has kept on keeping on. A Times-Picayune cartoonist tanked when he accidentally inserted an extra e, and now he must pay, though not nearly as much as an American motorist filling his gas-guzzling Hummer.

Presidents, like Obama, have term limits. Words, like keep, have e limits, so e-liminate one of those three vowels. Consider it a budget cut.

Whew! That's it for me. I'm out of gas.
