Jay Leno reads headlines that are wrong once a week...I don't think most of the world would get this one though!

I had an idea once in Hungary, when I was without a job. I could go around all the restaurants and correct their ALWAYS wrong German and English spelling. I would be rich by now if they would have paid for it!!!

Spelling mistakes on the menu of course...

LOL! I got hired because I'm good at catching language bloopers. Of course, I'm also good for the occasional blooper, myself. Oy.

Raggedymom: You are definitely not alone in your perceptiveness. That is my hobby and vocation, ie. correct errors like the one named in this post.

Kasamba: Could you imagine if someone wants to apply for the job, as it's posted. In the interview it would be something like: "...well, yes, I know my Calvin Kleins from my Parasuco jeans, but I'm not too sure about jean skirts...."

CM: Maybe I SHOULD send it to Jay.

Mia: Great idea; I've noticed menu errors countless times...starting with prices. Did you know that just like we read Hebrew from right to left, we read menus from right to left!?

Shira: Language bloopers do make for good conversation, you've got to admit!

Marallyn: Great story. Thanks for sharing it.

Beautiful stranger: Ya think?
