Food Menus Redux

Our local pub has already featured herein. After several years they have finally updated their menu, retiring some of our favourite typos. If you were thinking they would take extra care with their new menu, you'd be wrong. Leaping out is a new contender: Chichen Burger.

3 Day's Only

Yet another apostrophe violation. This was one unusual though, in that it was on TV. TV seems to have a reasonable checking process in place, but this one got through. And it wasn't subtle either. The main focus of the ad was "3 Day's Only".

Under What?

It's almost becoming too easy to go out and find incorrect signs ...

What Sort of Garments?

Not sure if I have any of these types of garments to take to the cleaners.

An End To A Quirky Tradition

When we moved into the area about 10 years ago, we started ordering take-away from the local Thai restaurant. Jamie would order and I would go and pick up. The first time we did this, I picked up the order in Jamie's name. Since then the staff have addressed me as Jamie.

A New Take On Google Ad Words

Spotted this while driving and just had to follow until I could get a snap. You've got to admire the ingenuity. It appears to work too.

Food Menus

Menus (of the type found in bistros and restaurants, not websites or software) are often a source of humorous typos. Last night's trip to the local pub was no exception. The first was "chilllis" (with three l's), although given the font they were using this was hard to spot and can be forgiven. "Banga's and Mash" though was an interesting variation on a theme, managing to cram a mis-spelling and an apostrophe violation into the one word.

Another Word Not To Misspell

The context for this one only adds to the humour. Here's another one.

Its vs It's

The most common apostrophe errors would have to be those involving "its" vs. "it's". I spotted these two while out and about. The first is classic because the company does presentation. What's also humorous / disappointing is that both are professionally prepared signs. Come on signwriters, lift your game.

Basketball Shots

Naruto plays basketball. I missed his last game so I inquired as to how he went. His team won. Then I asked if he scored any points. "No." he replied, "I had three shots and I missed them both." Much hilarity in the kitchen. To be fair, he did correct himself pretty quickly.
