Tattoos Gone Awry

From the guys over at humortrain.com:  A grammar lesson for tattoo artists everywhere.

The Purdue OWL Online Writing Lab explains the problem:

“A” goes before words that begin with consonants.

  • a cat
  • a dog
  • a purple onion
  • a buffalo
  • a big apple

“An” goes before words that begin with vowels:

  • an apricot
  • an egg
  • an Indian
  • an orbit
  • an uprising

Exceptions

Use “an” before unsounded “h.”

And yes, God is awesome.
