Dinner Anyone?

This flyer arrived in the mail today advertising a new, cool place to eat dinner. Yummy.

And then I saw it.

Oopsie! Do you see it?

It takes a moment…

Who can spot the error first?

Who can leave me the funniest response? Ready? Go!

    1. To someone else’s ouse.

      *NOTE* This comment was sent to me privately via email by Michael Hess of Skooba Design who will not comment on my blog, even though I always comment on his. He demanded that I give him credit for this funny joke. There is your credit and your plug. 😉

  1. Took a second read for me. Do we tend to correct without realizing? My daughter found a billboard last night that read something about dealing with dyslexia, and she swears a word was misspelled. Uh oh.

  2. I have never seen an Asian place that didn’t have a menu riddled with errors. That’s not trying to be racist, it’s just something I’ve noticed. It is what it is.

  3. I think the facts are that after they bought the prints, and got them printed, they seen the misteak. A lot of people of course do correct things in their head when it’s on something that they or someone close to them didn’t write. When the written materiel is wrote by themselves or someone close to them, it’s a lot more personal and they take their time to read properly, other types of reading such as reading a sign is more of a quick glance, were our brain is on autocorrect mode.

    So after the company seen this, after they had got them printed, they had already spent the money on the prints and had an idea that people do auto correct spelling. Any advertisement is good as long as it’s not something that is really bad such as bad food. A simple spelling mistake and it not only got your attention but it got your attention so much that you posted on your blog about it and now other people know about the restaurant.

    It simply wouldn’t be worth purchasing the flyers from the printers, getting them back and realising the spelling mistake… Oops, then having to throw them all away. Waste of money, the mistake is not worth the cost of the flyers.

    1. Leave it to you KB to bust me on my faux blog-break. Truthfully, I have one more week’s worth in the hopper and then the well is dry. Feel free to alert me to any photos you might procure of misspellings or other grammatical bloopers.
