Good Grammar Protects Us From Cannibalism

Be Careful What You Print

A recent stay in a Scottish four star hotel gave me a nice opportunity to show how things can go wrong with your written word.

With Hallowe’en approaching I thought you might like this.

The picture above shows the room service menu in the hotel.

If you’re looking for snack late at night (and which of us monsters, vampires and ghouls isn’t at this time of year?) you can enjoy “finger sandwiches” and “chefs soup”.


I had two questions:

  1. Do you do any fillings other than finger?
  2. Were the chefs washed thoroughly before they were put in the soup pot?

I really like chefs, but I couldn’t eat a whole one…
