An old friend (Hi Terri) sent me a link to a real estate agents web page, featuring a house in the street I used to live in back in Footscray. She knows perfectly well that even if I'm living on the other side of the world, where the seasons are backasswards, I still take a keen interest in all that happens in Melbourne and Footscray.
This paragraph (no link, the page'll be gone in a month) fairly leaped out of the web browser at me.

Lemme see, two malapropisms and at least one punctuation error.
Yeah, I know, everyone uses word processors these days but this copywriter doesn't even have the homonym excuse to fall back upon. Floor and flaw do *not* sound the same.
Picky bastard aren't I!
