Functional Illiteracy at it's finest

Let me begin by saying I am familiar with the constraints and restrictions that are imparted on people who speak English as a second language, based on what their first language happens to be. And these were not examples of those constraints or restrictions.... I saw a flier on the community board at the local grocery store today, listing items included in a "Moveing Sale" (example number 1): kichten table dishie's book's int center frigerator (surprisingly - given the state of the rest of the flier - correct, other than the missing "re") dressor I had a good giggle so I thought I'd share.

I posted an image on my blog - funny spelling on someone's "menu". It isn't really a menu on a restaurnat, just a menu on the food the store was selling. What's really funny about it is that this store is near a very well known university in our country so you can guess that those students probably know the place because of the bad english :P http://thingswelovetohate.blogspot.com/2008/12/scar-on-filipino-pride.html Thanks for the response on my discussion!

I saw a flyer for a local band performing at a club nearby and was struck by similar mispellings. I actually thought it was a joke and took a few minutes to try and figure out what I was missing. If it was a joke it was way over my head.
