I Don't Need No Stinkin' Grammar

I followed a landscaping company's truck home from the library today, and the longer I was behind it, the more annoyed I got. Points to the folks who can find the grammar errors in this little ditty that was painted on the back of the trailer:

There goes the guys that can fix my lawn

Yunno, it's bad enough that folks use poor grammar in everyday conversation (I know I do it, too -- though not as often as most and I make an effort to be correct), but come on... this represents the quality of your company!

Grrr... and I had to follow the stupid thing for miles.

Did they have a phone number on their trailer? I think I'd have been tempted to call them up and give them a grammar lesson. *g*

Once I saw this Internet ad for a tv show: "Whose hotter, mom or daughter?" I wasn't sure whether the show's concept or the ad's language abuse was more offensive. I complained to the supporting site, and they changed the ad! Unfortunately, I fear the tv show still lives.
