LMAOWROTF!! These are great!

My friend just sent me a copy of a menu from a Chinese restaurant from the 70's. At the bottom, it has a special ad for "Crap Puffs." I can only guess they must have meant "Carp!"

Has anyone noticed how many newscaster speak in incomplete sentences these days? Drives me nuts: A car rolled over on I70 tonight. One passendeger was killed. Mile marker 6 near the Utah border. Single car accident. Five other passengers. That's not an actual one, but a small example. It's as though they are doing "news-shorthand" or something!

One guy used to drive me crazy by pronouncing it Beet-hoe-ven.
