Lazy Spelling and Suicidal Birds

February 18th, 2005 Leave a comment Go to comments

I noticed the other day on a packet of sandwiches, that somebody had at work, that the company who produced them had described that as “lo-fat” and “lo-salt”. That really annoys me. It’s one letter. Just one letter. Surely you can’t be so lazy as to not put in the final letter on a three letter word. It’s not as if it is a difficult word to spell, it’s not a long word, but yet they are too lazy (or worse yet, they are so “hip”) that think they don’t need to put on the final letter of the word. Unbelievable.

I’ve also noticed recently, and particularly last week, that there have been an increase of suicidal birds that feel they want to end it all by flying at very low level (about 3 cms off the ground) across roads, right in front of my car. Is there something about this time of year that increases depression in bird species? Or perhaps they need urban-training – like the fox I saw last night that has obviously been well trained as it tried to cross the road on a zebra crossing!
