ybunny is off to visit his brother for the weekend. I feel like I have the start of tonsillitis coming on, so I'm going to barricade myself in the house until Sunday morning. Hopefully, mainlining vitamin C will ward this off.
I walked past the Chicken Hut on Union St. today.
I don't usually walk past there, and when I do, I don't usually notice the place, since I'm not an eater of chicken.
However, something caught my eye:Chicken Hut
This got me to thinking.
Perhaps it's my time served with the graphic designers while working in marketing, but it seems to me that it isn't that hard to find the spell check button when putting something up for public consumption.
Now, you might say...but Jyll! You've made spelling errors in your blog!
Yes, but I'm not trying to sell you anything. :)
There's a time and a place for spelling errors (as I noted previously, it sometimes shows that the food might be of greater importance than the marketing), however, I'll give you a little illustration to make my point.
Next time you find yourself reading a tabloid in the US/a gossip mag in the UK, check and see if there are any spelling errors.
Amazing how there isn't.
These publications know that they aren't particularly credible to the average person. To include spelling errors would drop them below bother. (I'm not sure its true, but I was told that it is more likely that you'll find a spelling error in the Washington Post than the National Inquirer. Hmm.)
It's the same with fast food. The quality of the food is low, so the marketing has to be pretty darn good.But, then again...maybe the Chicken Hut is just really that good...Now, back to that vitamin C.
