In a recent newspaper article a sponsor of a local 1 mile charity run was listed as "Coka Cola"! How does one misspell Coca Cola? I suppose it's because the shorthand is "Coke"!?

I was traveling for work and started noticing road construction signs.  As I drove closer they had a flashing sign that read right lane closed 6/5 threw 6/8. Makes me curious how far and why June 5th threw June 8th. Haha.

I guess that's like having a shouldemer separation! 

And before I get flamed for going OT, this is still a media mistake! Recently, there has aired in our local market a television ad for a local restaurant. The camera shot shows their "Surf 'n Turf", in which a large fly is seen crawling around on the lobster tail! 

YAAAAGGGHHHHHH! Doesn't anybody look at these things before airing them?!  BTW, that ad has been pulled!

Maybe the writer is referring to delay caused when playing golf on the computer, you know by hitting the "undo" button???

It's generally wise to, when making wisecracks about spelling, to watch your own spelling.

Huh? I wasn’t making a comment on his spelling. Just opening up a possibility that there might possibly be a way a 4 year old could possibly spell the word 😁

I didn't say you were making a comment on Scott's spelling. Both of you were, however, "making wisecracks about spelling."
