Had to laugh-even ad sponsor can't spell "lose"

OK, I thought the long-lived thread about lose vs. loose made too big of an issue out of the whole deal, but even I am irritated at this. The sidebar ads are always changing so maybe you can't see what I am referring to, but an ad today (by asks "Do you want to loose a few winter pounds"
Pretty pathetic when even the professional world can't get it right.

Yeah, I noticed that yesterday. Spelling errors have always been taken as a way to question credibility.

whatever they are providing, they are giving away a free 7 day sample of it.

How about menu credibility? I just went out for lunch and the restaurant had "Pull Pork" on the menu. That's PULLED pork to the rest of us.

No, I didn't eat it.

Here, in NY, the best foods are to be found at ethnic hole-in-the-walls. Most of them cannot spell, but certainly can cook!

If it is spelled loose, I think they spelled it wrong on purpose, to make you think, if you can lose pounds your clothes will be loose. If they spelled it correctly there wouldn't even be a discussion, it wouldn't have even been noticed. The ad did what it was suppose to.

re the pulled pork, I hear you! My grocery store has an aisle marked "Can Vegetables."

Can vegetables tapdance? Can vegetables find the missing "-ned?"
