Twitter is having a field day with this badly worded bench memorial just recently dedicated at a dog park in L.A. to Nicole Campbell.
Sorry but I love this badly phrased memorial bench so much pic.twitter.com/oe6gj6BUEz— Jen D'Angelo (@jenlikespizza) April 29, 2018
It reads "In Loving Memory of Nicole Campbell, Who never saw a dog and didn't smile". So did she hate dogs or is her family just bad at English?
Twitter had some pretty hilarious comments about the memorial:
The lesson here: Going through life without ever seeing a dog can be a little depressing, although a remarkable achievement.— Carl Clark (@cfclark) April 29, 2018

Why didn't someone just show this poor woman a dog? :(— Jett Vee (@rubydoomsday) April 30, 2018
Anyone who went thru life without seeing a dog or smiling deserves a bench named after him.— Sun Chron Politics (@TSCPolitics) April 30, 2018
Nicole does sound like a lovely person— 🍸 DB McWeeberton 🤖 (@DBMcWeeberton) April 30, 2018
But that’s not a very beautiful sentence. They want something shorter. I think our best option would be to remove “and.” We could say:— Ginseng English (@ginsenglish) April 30, 2018
...who never saw a dog without smiling.
Here the smiling is directly connected to seeing a dog.
May you rest in peace Nicole.... and I hope you're not bothered by all the dogs that went to heaven!
