Bloggers, unite!


I'm proud to announce that I have a new online correspondent - and she's found us a great pizza menu! Thank you Mrs. S. - who mostly aptly said:

The menu hits all the high notes:
Misspellings? Check.

Random punctuation and capitalization? Check.

Different font sizes? Check.

See for yourself:
How many funny things can you find? I'll give you a hint: there are quite a few :)

My personal favorite: the "possibility of crusting" as a pasta option. What on earth?!?


Note - please double-click on the menu to avoid squinting!

I need to know where this place is, we're always on the lookout for good crusting! It's so hard to make it at home!

Me, I want a pizza with a Bulgarian on top.

Mrs. S. said...

"The Pizzas" sounds like it should be the name of an, ahem, cheesy TV drama...
:-)

Thanks for the link!

I agree with all of you - this is really priceless :)

Why in the world would anybody want to drink "litter?" If Jay Leno was still around this would be great for his headlines segment!

B"H

My pet peeve is use of the word "glatt."

What did the shohet do? Check the lungs of the cheese for legions?

Sorry, I don't accept this "vernacular."

Cute post,...as always. ;-}

toby said...

SPG - thanks for stopping by - I agree!

Ben-Yehudah - that always gets me, too. See here: http://atimeofthesigns.blogspot.com/2008/03/slight-marketing-exaggeration.html

This is a riot.
What is a "foucacha"?

toby said...

SuperRaizy - thanks for coming by! Mrs. S. and I think they're referring to focaccia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Focaccia) - but that certainly qualifies as a classic Israeli typo. "Should we look it up? Nah - no one reads the English anyway..."

Rachel said...

I think the fouchacha would be a fabulous dance. Also fun is the rural salad.

toby said...

Rachel - I agree, that's what I like about this menu - there are lots of typos, sure, but they're interesting ones, like the Bulgarian as a topping, or the rural salad. It provides for lots of funny imagery!

Brilliant!
By the way, I know you live in Efrat, but you might still be interested in this;

Adam - thanks! I don't really think of myself as a writer, but maybe...

Hi Toby,
I love your blog because I love funny signs and/or public typos.
Especially when they're combined with what I call "punctuation abuse".

I had no idea anyone enjoyed them as much as I do.

My latest find was in the Shabbat bulletin from my shul dated a few weeks ago. They have made the building nut-allergy friendly. Yep..wait for it..

"Such&Such shul is now Nut-Free"

It was rephrased by the following week.

As for the menu here, I'm not sure I want a "mixture off lettuce".

Off is off...mixing ain't gonna help!

Hi Patti - it's so nice to see you here! Not everyone always agrees with my opinion of funny, but I definitely enjoy public typos and goofy punctuation, capitalization, anything - I guess we're cousins after all :)

That Shabbat bulletin sounds hilarious - if you have a copy and scan it, I'll happily post it here! You can be my new Chicago correspondent...
