Should I Ask For Replacement?

There’s something wrong with this third-place certificate I received from Suburban Newspapers of America. Can you find the mistake?

I thought about asking SNA to send me a new one, because I wouldn’t want to display it like this, but I’m not sure I want to display a third-place certificate anyway. As Ricky Bobby says, “If you ain’t first, you’re last.”

    I’m guessing you’re talking about the missing “l” in “Famingo” unless, of course, there is such a thing as “Famingo.” Maybe it’s a new dance but then how would it be pink? I found your missing “l” though. It’s in my name!

    I think it’s perfect as is. Put it out there with pride, my man.

    There are only 2 people who are happy to not be in 3rd place, everyone else wishes they had it. Display it with pride and if anyone asks how many entries were in the contest just say “under a thousand”.

    While at Disney for a soccer tournament in Feb got to watch some of the National High School Cheerleading that was also taking place there. They gave out 14 trophies per division (lots of those). When they announced the 14th place squad the team jumped up and down like they had won Olympic gold. Each subsequent award was received the same way. What really cracked me up were the moms sitting next to me who cheered like crazy for each of the teams as they were announced because they were NOT their daughters’. Once their school was announced (7th, I think) the cheering stopped.

    Ricky Bobby also says, “If you don’t chew Big Red, f— you.” So maybe I shouldn’t live by his words.

    You might want to take third place and be glad, if this sentence is typical of your editorial skills: “Click here to see a video of Soren Rood, Sam Bentley, and I getting a sneak preview of the Holmes Aquatic Center at Curtis Park.”

    On the screen, that probably comes across more harshly than I intend. But, really folks, is a little basic grammar too much to ask?
