NYIT Students Cannot Spell "NEW YORK"

So students of the "New York Institute of Technology", or NYIT for short, cannot spell friggin New York.
This flyer is posted all over the campus. Everyone simply walks past it. No one commented. Am I the only one who can read this? Its like I am the "Ghost Whisperer" but for obscene spelling mistakes!

you mean flyer? dude, when posting about other people's spelling mistakes, focus on your own :p

I don't spell. I spell check. This for some reason fell through.

I do pick on NYITers spelling because it is supposedly American and English is the University's first language. It is OK when students miss-spell, its their second language, but I do expect someone from the Uni to correct them.

And as for miss-spelling their name? Have you ever mis-spelled your name Ammar?

Just looked at it, Blogger doesn't identify "flyer". It always underlines it.
Damn American English. Why is there American English anyway? Shouldn't there just be English English?

This is not even a proper sentence.
You should check yourself, because YOU look like the fool here.

Friggin' (as you put it) is spelled with an apostrophe after it, if we're nitpicking...

You should also proofread your posts, because spellcheck alone cannot pick up on grammatical and/or usage errors.

You tried to rip on others, but it looks like you are the dick!

Good day, a$$hole!
