William points out that one of his lowercasel posts fits here, too.

A stunningly illiterate tribute to one of America's finest.

On the topic of "large" pizzas and such...

Let me say first that when Steph sends me photos of her tittles, that's just a good day all around...

These two signs are on the window of a pizza place in Agawam, MA, near Six Flags. They are good examples of the "every letter but one" being uppercase. Note on the second picture that the author decided the words in all caps don't start with a tittle, but can have one in the middle. Shall we call this a middle tittle?

But these great tittles are just a distraction from the better story on this day:

Have you ever ordered a "large" pizza in Western MA? Where I come from (and at every national chain), "large" means a big, round pizza with 8 slices, right?

Not in Western MA, apparently. Steph had budgeted $30-40 for pizza for her son Matt's party at Six Flags (we were tailgating), but it cost about $100 -- because out there a "large" is a 3-foot-by-4-foot monstrosity.

We ordered 4.

For 15 people.

It was Matt's 14th birthday, but we're still trying to figure out whether we'll need a U-Haul to help him bring the leftovers to college...

Steph and I were just as happy as these folks when watching the Sox punch their ticket to the WORLD SERiES last night. Or maybe they punched their TiCKET. I'd have to ask. Were it not for the lowercase "n" in BOUnD, the perfection of these examples would be breathtaking.

Go SOX!!!
