Couldn't resist posting something that not only made me smile, but actually gave me the giggles, which then turned to flat out laughter the more I read!
I was going over a menu to choose food for an event here and came across these little "funnies". The menu was in three languages, one of which was English. Funny how a few misplaced letters can change the meaning!
Spaghetti with oil, garlic and chilly - does this mean it's a cold spaghetti dish?!
Spaghetti, fresh tomatoes, garlic, fred Tiger, rucola, Parmesan - a Tiger named Fred will be appearing in this spaghetti dish? Sounds a little iffy, doesn't it?!
Pork stek with friend Italian Copernicus - this is where I really got to laughing! I wonder how the Italian friend, Copernicus, feels about being on the menu with the pork stek?!
Lettuce with tomatoes, onion, Tune fish and corn - a tuned fish in this salad? Will he play a melody while I eat?!
Mixed salad chef - this sounds like it's the chef who is on the menu! Wonder how HE feels about that?!
Mineral water with gas - if you've lived in, or visited, Europe this isn't so funny, but I got to thinking about someone visiting this restaurant who had never been to Europe and wondered how they'd feel about mineral water mixed with a little gasoline?!
Trout on butter with salvia - although this is actually spelled right, doesn't it look like you're having trout on butter with saliva?!! Oh my - not sure who would choose that item!
Roasted beef sirloin with rocket and balsamic honey sauce - a rocket with my beef sirloin? I'd like to see that!
Spinach on butter and cheese - and this one just made me giggle! Sounds like the main dish is butter and cheese, with a little spinach on top. Cholesterol heaven!
Ooh yes, I'd like a dinner of spinach on butter and cheese for sure. Finally, someone got the proper proportions of food groups right!ReplyDelete
Ahh...the joys of living in another country. :DReplyDelete
The rocket one may be correct - rocket is British/Australian/Canadian/New Zealand English for the American arugula (a salad leaf).ReplyDelete
this was great. I'm laughing out loud still. How hilarious! I have a hard time choosing between the friend, the gas or the butter with spinach.ReplyDelete
So worth a good laugh.
