  • Yeah, DOT better get to work on those signs that say “do not drag race down a dead end street”, how’s anyone gonna know unless there’s a big ol sign?

    I propose a new funding scheme for Citibike. Each time someone publishes an article that uses “peddle” instead of “pedal” (or “peddling” instead of “pedaling”, etc.), they shall pay a fine of $1000 per offense. Soon we’ll have coverage from Newark to New Haven!

    But it’s usually a pun, so you can’t really call it incorrect.

  • qrt145

    Sometimes it’s a pun. Sometimes you may stretch it and interpret it as a pun, but it’s questionable. But in my experience it’s most often an unintentional misspelling akin to “principle” vs “principal”.

    Is the example in today’s AMNY article supposed to be a pun? Maybe, but I have my doubts.

  • Jeff

    “Pedaling uphill”? That’s used correctly.

  • qrt145

    Earlier today it said “peddling”, I swear. One of the advantages of web publishing is that you can fix mistakes, after all!

  • Jonathan R

    It’s ‘peddling’ in the print version I picked up this morning.

  • SFrankel

    If it’s a pun, in other words if it’s deliberate, then the penalty should be $5000. There’s no excuse for inflicting that kind of clichéd “cleverness” on the reader.

  • qrt145

    Today in the Daily News: “City pedals plan for more bike lanes Uptown”. If that’s supposed to be a pun, it’s a bad one, so I agree with SFrankel that we should penalize puns too. 🙂
