MISSPELLING MONDAY for August 3, 2009


Hmmm. This doesn't look like a scrapper...

It looks more like a scraper. Which, by the way, is a multi-use tool, not a "multi use tool."

I'd make a few snide comments about the general FAIL-ness of this product's packaging, but I'm pretty sure that the product's bar code, which says "Made in India," explains pretty much everything...so I'll be gentle. This time, anyway. ;)

Thanks to STEVE for finding this one!

I hate it when the inch marks aren't straight on packaging! Come on!

Ooh, I didn't even notice that until you pointed it out...good eye! :)

Rob said...

Hm... a four and a half foot tall fighting tool that has multiple uses... yea, I think I've seen that particular role played by a few actors over the years. I have to agree that the picture looks more like a scraper rather than any of the actors I can think of.

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

LOL!!! Yes, that does look like a scraper...but I bet SOME actors can be tools... :)

Rob said...

And I bet some actors would be better served as scrapers rather than as actors.

I'm not quite sure that the word scrapper is an error in printing the label.

Reading the rest of the label, it was originally designed to chop roots and, noting there is no discussion of its ability to scrape anything off any noted surface, I believe they just may have intended that troublemakers, often referred to as scrappers, would take this with them for a night out on the rough side of the tracks. It might become necessary to have a renown multi-use tool along that could sever/chop the limbs off the other combatants. I could be wrong.

Thanks for another fun post.

Cheers

@ Rob: Ha! I think you're right!

THE GRAMMARPHILE said...

@ David: LOL!!! It would be kinda fun to distribute these tools to some hoodlums and see what sorts of damage they could cause with them...

David said...
