Just can’t get enough of Sarah Palin? Well, here’s another one that will wet your word nerd whistle. It’s a photo of our country’s then-future Republican vice presidential nominee wearing a t-shirt with, of all things, a comma catastrophe:

Here it is close up:

Images from the Huffington Post, which reported:  “Sarah Palin in her dorm room at the University of Idaho wearing a t-shirt that reads “I May Be Broke, But I’m Not Flat Busted.” It was kind of them to correct her but if you look closely, the t-shirt actually says “I May Be Broke But, I’m Not Flat Busted” with the comma erroneously placed after but instead of before.

Our friends at SPOGG have concoted a plan for evil genius for addressing what could be a potential shortcoming in our GOP VP nominee. In the meantime, Palin might want to study up on the whole comma thing before National Punctuation Day, which is just around the corner.
