My friend Sherry received a very practical gift from her children for Christmas this year. It’s a little coffee warmer that you can leave on your desk to … in fact … warm your coffee.
We laughed earlier in the year when we talked about warning labels because, as Sherry commented … it warned very strongly against placing Styrofoam cups on it.
Well today, as we ate lunch, I glanced down at the coffee warmer. I could barely read on the top the word “Caution”. Only, as I looked closer I realized that it didn’t say “Caution” at all … it said “CATUION”. I asked, “How do you spell caution?” Because I thought maybe I was just off on my spelling.
I ended up looking at the bottom of the warmer out of curiousity, and you will never believe what it said. This is not a joke … it actually said:
TO FREVENT ELECTRIC EHOCK LINFLUG EEFORE CLEAING
What language is that?
Needless to say … we got a good laugh … and decided that it must be some kind-of bootleg flea market gadget … or it is from some alien planet where getting EHOCKED is a reall threat so to FREVENT it you must be reminded to LINFLUG EEFORE CLEAING.
