FOODIE FRIDAY for March 20, 2009


OK, Melting Pot. This is gettin' bad. Now you're a repeat offender--twice in one month! If only your grammar could be as good as your delicious food is...

This picture comes to us from JADE, who says, I just received this lovely you're/your grammar mistake in my email from The Melting Pot. I demand a free pot of fondue for the email putting this mental stress on me.

I like JADE'S idea! Wouldn't it be fun to see if area businesses that use crappy grammar would trade goods/services for help fixing up their e-mail blasts/menus/signs/etc? Hmmm...now that's food for thought!

Thanks, JADE, for spotting this one!

Mmmmm...Melting Pot. If "your" going there again, I am coming with you. ;) Didn't we all have fun there on Christmas Eve?
Love you.

Hell yeah, you are! :) That was such a good/fun meal! NOM!

Love you, too! :)

Ooh...I'd definitely take free Melting Pot food in exchange for fixing their grammar. ;)

We should each start bugging our local Melting Pots about such a deal. The Melting Pot people would probably be pretty bewildered at first, but eventually they'd just have to admit that giving a little bit of free food to a grammarian so as to prevent future grammar errors from going out in their e-mail blasts would be a really good (and pretty cheap) idea! :)

Absolutely. I'm going there in a couple weeks for my birthday, I'll bring it up then. ;)

They can't possibly refuse that suggestion when it comes from the Birthday Girl! :)
