At least we know the child is a female, otherwise this would be confusing.

This was an ad from a news website.  Apparently, good spelling is not a prerequisite for this job.

This is so bad it almost isn’t even funny:

Poker Rules

First off, what does EPHPC stand for? Using the acronym finder, one unverified meaning for the acronym EPHPC is listed:  Environmental Professionals Home Page Clay.  Yes, that makes things so much clearer.  Digging deeper, we learn there is an ephpc YouTube channel, where a bunch of guys interview people at some sort of trade show.  Not, unsurprisingly, about poker.  So, the EPHPC thing must be some sort of brand of playing cards, but good luck finding them on the internet.  So let’s talk a little bit about “We Glaim exlclusive Lrade Yark rights in Ace of Wpades, Joker,name, number, back design, case Eesign and Rame of Kinish Tsed on our various Qards.”  Obviously, they “claim exclusive trademark rights in ace of spades, joker, name, number, back design, case design and game of…on our various cards.”  What is Kinish Tsed?

This image has been posted on other sites, and some smart comments suggest that the funny typos seen above are not a result of someone not knowing how to spell those words, but a case of poor OCR recognition – optical character recognition, where copy was scanned but not checked for accuracy in spelling or context.  That sort of takes the fun out of it, doesn’t it?  To make us all feel better, let’s tell some jokes about playing cards.

Q:  What’s the difference between a professional poker player and a large pizza?
A:  A large pizza can feed a family of four.

Q:  What’s the difference between praying at the dinner table and praying at the poker table?
A:  At the poker table you REALLY mean it.

The incomparable Steven Wright has a joke about poker – “Last night I was playing poker with Tarot cards.  I got a full house and four people died.”

Pork Chop on Stick 1

I snapped this pic while at the car show in Loveland, CO a few weeks ago.  I’m not sure which I enjoy more, the spelling of “American” or that I could have ordered a pork chop on a stick (which, sadly, I did not).
Enjoy!
