Whoever writes the signs at Dale's Kroger...  
cannot spell.

When I stopped by last night, I saw signs offering "Decrotive Planters" and both beef and pork "tenderlion". (Not in the same department, but in the same handwriting.)

I think Decrotive Planters would be used by zombies.

I think Decrotive Planters is where zombies come from.

As for tenderlion? P.E.T.A. ::nods:: People Eating Tasty Animals. So many species, so little time.

I've been told, I don't know how accurately, that carnivore meat is kind of rank compared to herbivore meat.

Hence, marinade and tenderisation. Plus, depends to some extent on the age of the carnivore, just as this affects game & domestic herbivore meat.

"Decrotive" sounds dreadfully unappetizing for something you'd get at a grocery store. Reminds me of "necrotic."
Janet Miles, CAP-OMjanetmiles on April 3rd, 2009 03:07 pm (UTC)
Yep. At least it was something not meant to be edible, but even so.

These (Kroger's signmakers in general) are the same morons who constantly post notices that items are "(cents sign)0.10/each."

I would invite a tenderlion to dinner.

I would be concerned that I might be dinner! (See also, "Evil Laugh," by Seanan McGuire. Lyrics and excerpt)

That's a different level of error. For the ones Janet mentions, I'd suggest a red magic marker.

I'm sorry; I'm not getting this. Is "Santa Bears" a wrongness for something, or was it the idea of "see display of stuffed bears in the meat department," or am I just all stupid today?

Well, I can see several possibilities.
The weirdness of having a toy display in the meat dept.
Implying that they *are* the meat. (ie bear meat in meat dept)

And then the one for us pervs. Big, hairy gay men in santa caps and harnesses as the "fresh meat". :-)

I worked in a supermarket during my teenage years and was constantly astounded at the spelling on the signs. It looked as though people were misspelling things when they were copying from an example in front of them (like a price list or whatever). How else would you misspell a _brand name_?

They have problems like that here, too...
"Choclate Mouse Cake" was the one that sticks in my head. But the 1 second web survey that I saw yesterday made me wince:
"Are supermodels to skinny?"

I assume that you've read and enjoyed 'Eats, Shoots, and Leaves'?
