Can you find at least nine things wrong with this picture?

I give up. I've been staring at this picture of two boys (one with a novelty balloon with a fake tied-off neck on top, and the other buying Pupcorn™ brand popcorn, on a nonlinear pricing scale designed to encourage sales of larger quantities, from a man who, because of a rare congenital condition, was born with three arms) walking with their anthropomorphic dog stepfather near a skateboard with state-of-the-art Square-Off™ wheels that change shape when parked, and in front of one of those new ferris wheels with upside-down seats for a more thrilling ride, an advertising blimp in the shape of a car, and the Pants Expo tent, for like ten minutes now, and I can't find a single thing wrong with it.

Oh, wait... the yellow ink is poorly aligned. Look at those yellow "halos" in the white areas! Tsk tsk.

Well, yeah—look at how much space there is between the L and the A in LARGE!

Oh yeah! Look at that cavernous spacing between the L and A in "LARGE". Too much negative space. You're supposed to *adjust* for that, people!! Sheesh. Sign painters used to take *pride* in their work.

It's French!

Actually, it's missing an apostrophe. It's supposed to read L'ARGE (pronounced L'ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGHGHGHGHH) which is French for GINORMOUS.

Also, the top part of one of the red stripes on the Pupcorn stand's awning is coloured blue (or maybe it's transparent, so that we can see the sky through it), the Ferris wheel is missing a seat, and the wind is blowing the pants but not the balloon.

"anthropomorphic dog stepfather"
Could be very well a fursuiter!

But it's obviously the skateboard. It shouldn't be left in a high traffic area, even if the kid already saw it. people could get hurt!

So lessee... Unsafe skateboard, sign kerning, offset yellow. still far from the nine.

The printing is definitely off, and I'm pretty sure it's shopped. The proportions on the anthro dog are all off, and he looks happy and stress-free. A stress-free parent taking two kids to an amusement park? I think not!

If I had a robot dog dad, I'd hope for a glitzier model. I mean, seriously... walking around in sweats?

Kids these days! No fashion sense! ("fashion sense" in this case defined as being willing to spring for the "fashion sense" personality module for one's robot dog parent)

He could be a vampire.

No, wait, those guys just don't have reflections. Plus he's outside in daylight. Never mind.

He's under an awning and the sun's directly overhead, otherwise it'd still hit him through the unusual gap just behind the sign. You can still see light reflecting onto the back of his shirt though. The awning itself appears to be held up solely by the vender's mutant telekenetic powers.

Can't be; he's not a turtle.

There's no grass! What kind of surface are they walking on?

They're walking on that new GreenCrete™ stuff, made from recycled recycling bins. It's got a smaller carbon footprint than regular concrete!*

*Disclaimer: nah, it probably doesn't, actually.

It's "JO's", No E, And they went out of business last month. I'm pretty sure that model of VW was recalled too.

Given the extra arm and the fact everybody including the dog are missing a digit, I'd say there's also something horribly wrong with the town's water supply.

Speaking of which, have you seen Avatar? If so, didja notice that the Na'vi have eight fingers each, while the Avatar bodies have ten?

I didn't, but I did notice Scenery Censors when the newly-cloned avatar bodies were floating nude in the tanks.

And also that the Avatar bodies had their hair already braided around the tentacle like the real Na'vi had, before the camera went on-stage, so as to add that little bit of twist reveal.
