Just some smaller pearls of wisdom...thus pearlies.
LOL! It's nice to know I'm not the only stickler for these things!
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.
hahaha...my 83 year old mother told me a story today about sending her father out to get milk...the milkman was outside ringing his bell...and she needed a bottle of milk...my Zaidi (AH) ran out hollering 'mr. milkman, mr. milkman a bottleofmilk a bottleofmilk'...when he came back my mom tasted it...it was sour...he got what he asked for...buttermilk...dontcha just love it??? ps menus in israel make me crazy too...
it might not be a blooper, lol
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?
