Thtupid-Word Thursday: Cloths / Clothes

WRONG: “I Have my own business, Desiging hats and dog cloths.”  Um, in so many ways, wrong, even setting aside what society has forgotten:  that it is reasonably Weird for Dogs to wear stuff.

Here it is – visual and easy:

Clothes:

Cloths:

Really, which would YOU want to wear???

If you Google images for cloths, you will find, mostly clothes (a couple of loin cloths, so don’t google it while the kiddies are around!).  Here’s a YouTube video offering to “stretch UR $” by turning “WINTER kids cloths into SUMMER cloths” – sounds easy to me, though perhaps you’d want to dye them a lighter, pastellier shade.  And this is a reasonably moronic thread discussing “Parents and their kids cloths.”  Argh.

Kind of along the same lines, and misused in the same way, are Breath and Breathe.

Breath:

Breathe:

It’s okay, I tell myself.  Just take a deep breathe.  Don’t forget to breath, I say… don’t forget.

Japan has a thriving dog CLOTHES industry. Several stores in our previous neighborhood.

Motorcycle gear, umbrellas, Levi's, T-shirts, you name it!

Yay! I'm not the only grammar lady around!

I feel exactly the same way. And don't even get me started on misplaced apostrophes! (I even tried to be cute and misplace one there, but I just couldn't bring myself to submit it like that!)
