Wonderful Typos


In a thrift shop I recently pounced on a book titled Just My Typo, compiled by Drummond Moir. Today’s offerings come from overseas; it isn’t nice to laugh at people who don’t have full command of English. So stifle yourselves while you read these:

From India: WELCOME TO HOTEL COSY, where no one’s stranger.
From a doctor’s office in Italy: Specialist in women and other diseases
From Japan: Teppanyaki—before your cooked right eyes
From a cheese menu in a French restaurant in Hong Kong: Roguefart
From a cheese menu in France: This crud is from the finest milk
From a drink menu in Nepal: Complimentary glass of wine or bear
From a sign in a French gift shop: Our police: no refund, no exchange
