Lern to spell!

From the Oxfam Unwrapped DVD trailer:

Should be Learner. I know a lot of people would have no clue who the guy is (he's a character played by Richard Ayoade), but that's ok. I was amused. ;)

El cheapo pad thai

Not surprisingly, cheap food tends to have more mistakes than quality stuff.

- Should be Instructions
- Unitl
- Should be microwave[no s] settings

After I took that pic, I thought I'd show a comparison:

The ideal: nice! :)

The reality: not so nice. Tasty, though. It's a sort of slightly tangy peanut sauce with no hint of shrimp flavor. ;)

Noticed this whilst watching a review of the Retron 3 gaming console on Classic Game Room:

Desinded. I misspell design all the time while typing, but it usually comes out desing. At least I still have a 'g' in there. :p

Doesn't anyone proofread anymore?

I almost hate to post this, as this is my family doctor's mother, and because obits are a sad thing anyway, but still...

Clam lake?! The more mistakes I see in our stupid local newspaper, the more it makes me want to force myself into a proofreading job there! I bet all they do is use Spell Check and if they don't see any red marks, they're good to go. I would've given them a piece of my mind over this and probably gotten [no, demanded!] some sort of refund.

P.S. I hadn't really thought of it before, but it is also inferred in that first sentence that they commited an illegal act...

From a Food Network challenge to build giant gingerbread houses, these were instructions found on the inside of the wooden structure used to hold one of them together.
