from across the pond?

There's been a commercial on local TV lately for a beauty salon having a sale on liter size bottles of shampoo. They flash the word "liter" on the screen 7 times - 4 times it is spelled "liter" and 3 times it is spelled "litre."

What? Half of the commercial was made by a Brit? No, the whole ad was created by under-educated Americans.

A few gems from Zeke...

Zeke is the Compulsive Proofreader's first guest contributor!

This is a farm's 'hook' on HWY 199. It's been up for years, but it's so good. This one actually makes me smile instead of roll my eyes.

As Zeke said, "Burning fur smells bad. I'd go with the Uke."
On second thought, I'd prefer to use fir or eucalyptus in my woodburning stove. Ukeleles may have stinky side effects, too.
