I wonder how many calories that main course has...

I wanted to save this one for a Foodie Friday post--or a Hump Day Grammar post!--but I couldn't wait until Friday, or even Wednesday, to post this. It's just too funny. Plus, I imagine that many of you reading this post are doing so during your first day back to work this week. And the first day back to work from a long weekend off is never fun, so I thought this post would make you giggle.

Apparently the road to hell is paved with good intentions plus broken spell-checkers and laziness in proofreading. I found this on FMyLife.com...




Just in case you needed another reason to remember to proofread your e-mails, especially business-type e-mails, I figured this post would serve as a good reminder.

Also, what the hell grocery store sells roast fuck? And how many calories is it? Also, what wine should you serve with it? Just curious...

OMG that's great. You're right, this couldn't even wait for tomorrow.

Mmmmmm....roast fuck. Now I am drooling all over myself...

As I read that, I thought his mistake was going to be "roast dick." That would've been a tad worse...and extremely disgusting-sounding.

Nice one, Grammarphile.

I personally would rather have vodka than wine with that, but that might just be me.

I'd serve Marilyn Merlot (yes, really!) with it.

Or something from the Some Young Punks winery in Australia: http://www.someyoungpunks.com.au/

I guess it all depends on what they use for basting. Is it a low cal flavored ummm "oil"?

Maybe it's one of those "negative calorie" things because it takes much more energy to eat than not to?

Yeah. My mind SO went there. So sorry.

@ Bridgete: That was one of the funniest errors I've ever read about! :)

@ Persnickety: Hahaha! Just don't get any drool on the "roast fuck," OK?

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ Proofreader: Yeah, "roast dick" would have sounded gross. "Roast fuck"? HILARIOUS! :)

@ Crane: Would I sound like too much of a lightweight if I said I'd rather have Cherry Pucker with that? (They don't seem to sell that around here anymore, though. Sigh.)

@ Ray: Marilyn Merlot? That's freakin' awesome! That's even cooler than the three bottles of Elvis Presley wine I have.

@ LadyStyx: It's OK--I was right there with ya on the "negative calorie" thought. Thanks for keeping me company in the gutter! :)
