Eat kids free

Oddee has 15 ads that'll make you say WTF?! Some misprints, some due to nothing more than crass ignorance.

Long ago when I worked in a pizza restaurant, they put up a sign advertising that they were hiring. The assistant manager, who apparently didn't quite have his English nailed down wrote on the sign: WORK IN A FREE DRUG ENVIRONMENT.

Well, I thought that was pretty funny, so I didn't try to correct him about it. The sign stayed up for several days. Finally one day I asked the manager, "When do I get my free drugs?" So then of course I had to explain it to him why I asked. He ripped the sign down immediately, cursing under his breath, which gave me something new to laugh about.

He didn't think it was funny.

  1. The one about pre-arranging a funeral for the wife for Valentine's Day had me rolling with laughter.
