More Spelling disasters February 1, 2007

Posted by Rambling Man in Poetry & Humor.

I couldn’t resist ! This is fresh from a local well known eaterie’s menu board – 3 errors in 2 sentences !

Seriously, wouldn’t you ask the tit who wrote the board if they had any literacy issues before you let them write it ? And I’d love to know what ‘pest’ is …

I’ll leave you spot the gaffes …

Mmmhhh mozzarella and mouse! I had a roast lion recently.
Roast lion

roast lion – thats a classic ! did you spot the LAS-ANGE ? or the Chilli con Carni – i wonder does that mean a chilli with a carnival type flavour ?

i can’t make the picture big enough to scrutinize the spellings, but when i see roast beef, i always think of eric newby and “the last grain race,” and the finnish sailors he was with on the moshulu, who referred to him, being english and all, as “rosbif strongbody.”

ps and how funny that my posting says it’s feb. 2 when it’s not even 6 p.m. yet here on feb. 1. you guys must be fast asleep right now….

yep we just woke up
the spellings say …

Toad in the Whole – not as strange as it sounds
Salmon topped with Pest !

6. Laurie - February 2, 2007

salmon topped with pest? like, anchovies? they’re kind of pesky. or maybe snails?

I saw a chalk-board recently that had something like this on it:

Deep-fried baby
squid on a bed of
salad leaves with
sweet chilli sauce

I passed by a short while later and predictably, some wag had wiped out the word “squid”.

gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “I’m so hungry, I’d eat a small child !” …

Laurie – i guess the “pest” was meant to say “pesto”, but images of a fish with mice on it kept coming into my head

9. GerryOS - February 7, 2007

but images of a fish with mice on it kept coming into my head

Or cockroaches, maybe, to give the fish a crunchy topping…
