Larry Sanders is the unfortunate victim of a misspelled tattoo (PHOTO)

Larry Sanders just signed a four year, $44 million extension with the Milwaukee Bucks, so he can afford to take care of mistakes like these.

Sanders apparently was victimized by a semi-illiterate tattoo artist, who inked the word “recieve” onto one of his arms.

The correct spelling, obviously, is “receive.”

That’s a shame.

Sanders had a sense of humor about the whole thing, posting the photo to his Instagram account with the comment, “Now just wait on it..”

      i before e except after c, or when sounded as “a” as in “neighbor” and “weigh”
      – or when it appears in comparatives superlatives like “fancier”
      – or when the c sounds as “sh” as in “glacier”
      – or when the vowel sounds like “e” as in “seize” or “i” as in “height”
      – or it shows up in compound words like “albeit”
      – or when it shows up in ing-inflections of verbs that end in e like “cueing”
      – or occasionally in technical words that have a strong etymological link to their parent languages such as “cuneiform” and “caffein”
      – and in numerous other random exceptions such as “science”, “forfeit”, and “weird”

    And let us not forget ‘e’ before ‘i’, except for pie.

    Tatoos on NBA players just look like a bunch of bruises, anyway.

      That was borderline racist no? I’m sure u won’t say that bout birdman. Hmm

        Birdman is the WORST. He is just a colorful mess. Then he adds the mohawk. He looks like a huge cry for attention.

        It’s not racist..what’s wrong with being honest about how it looks?

        Do you think it would be ridiculous for a black man to wear black (or brown) tatoos? Or for a white man to have white tatoos?

        Of course it’s ridiculous. Does that comment make me racist? Some font colours look better against white and some against black. Go cry me a river.

        Not that I agree with 6stn’s comment; most tatoos are green which look fine on anyone.

    If he paid for it with his Amex card he can file a complaint with Amex; but he probably paid cash.
