Dumbest statement of the day

Good grief! This little paragraph from Yahoo! Style is horrible on so many levels:

min wage sty

It’s hands-down the winner for “Dumbest Statement of the Day.” I think we might overlook the plural verb are for the singular company because this might have been written by a Brit, where companies are plural, grammatically speaking. (Or it might have been written by someone who knows nothing about English grammar.) But the rest of the text? Truly horrible. The conversions from Sri Lankan rupees to U.S. dollars are ridiculously wrong. And the remaining words are nonsense. And this was written by someone who actually gets paid to write. Disgraceful.
