I saw this sign in my local Asda this morning.

Dear me.

Oops 😁

I’ve told the tale several times of my dyslexic DDs misreading things in Asda. The elder yelled down the aisle that they were selling ‘bastard turkeys’ (basted) while the younger was horrified that they were selling ‘lion chops’ (loin).

I don’t fancy eating lion!

Maybe they meant to print "Sealion"? grin

I’m ashamed of myself that I had to look at that twice. It’s often easy to accept what you expect to see isn’t it - well that’s my excuse anyway!

Run out of beef presumably?

Maybe they are just anticipating Boris's Honours List? I can see Stanley girding himself up to become Sir Lion.

One of my OU colleagues announced to us at summer school one year that there would be "loin dancing". Never seen so many disappointed men in one place.

I’ve never tried lion.

I looked at the picture and couldn’t see what was wrong, I thought it was the packets were all on their sides, looked twice then the penny dropped when I read the replies😐

In my local Asda I’ve seen ‘New Zeeland Chedder’, and ‘Rasers are now in the shampoo aisle’. TBH I was astonished that ‘aisle’ was spelt correctly. Both printed signs of course.
Oh, and ‘If you can’t find what you want. Please ask a colleague.’
I was v tempted to ask how my colleagues at work would know where to find the chilli paste, but desisted.
I wouldn’t have commented on the full stop that should have been a comma, almost certainly a waste of time.
