Another example of flagrant Greek abuse. Courtesy of FAILBlog
The airbrushed lettering gives this shirt a special effect, as if to say, "I'm not all GEEK. I'm a graffiti artist (er... tagger) too." I think it's supposed to be a play on "alpha male" or "alpha dog" in which case he is claiming to be the top, most dominant geek. Despite the oxymoronic nature of such a claim, the title is all yours buddy. Definitely more GEEK than GREEK here. Verdict... NotGreekToMe!
Do you have other examples of the misuse of Greek in everyday life? Send them to me.
