Not a Grammar Mistake, but...

...definitely an error in judgment. I found this picture while looking through the grammar group's pictures today:

Yes, that really says "Bone [her] clothes for women."

It's funny, there's two ways to read that sign and they're BOTH offensive. That's sort of impressive.

You can either go with the standard "bone her," or scrunch it, when spoken, to the even less pleasant "boner."

Congrats, store. Congrats.
