23.07.2013 | 小心串字

[Volume 8 Issue 7, #1759]
昨日見到一位打扮非常時髦嘅女士, 賞心悅目之時忽然留意到佢件俾人感覺好高貴嘅T恤上, 竟然印住「FORTURN COOKIES」呢兩個字, 正一大煞風景呀!! 非常明顯, 想必係串錯咗FORTUNE COOKIES吧?? 於是我今日就想話語重心長咁勸戒大家, 唔該一定要非常在乎件衫上面印咗咩字, 本來係搶盡風頭, 但係一旦件衫上面印咗嘅字有錯, 成個image都會即刻cheap晒, 都真係唔方唔搶風頭喇!! 至於點解我又貼上紋身圖片呢?? 係咁嘅, 本來係要上網揾啲T恤串錯字嘅實例, 不過搜查結果俾咗我更多嘅紋身串錯字實例.. 我就諗, 相比之下T恤都未必係最壞情況啦, 反而係紋身, 本來以為好有型, 但係偏偏有個咁礙眼嘅spelling mistake!! 該煨囉, 跟足你一世人, 咪真係俾人笑到面都黃晒, 由隻老虎變成隻老鼠??
[是日教誨] 一係唔做, 要做就要準!! 當你唔肯定某字點樣串嘅時候, 請謹記要查字典呀~~ :p
saw a very fashionable lady yesterday and while admiring her fashionista way of dressing up, i suddenly realized on her very classy feel t-shirt it was printed with these two words: FORTURN COOKIES.. oh that was just so potong stim, very obvious that was a misspelt FORTUNE COOKIES right?? hence it inspired me to strongly advise everyone to be ultra careful with what was printed on your clothes.. it could be a very nice one attracting lots of attention, but once there is a misspelt word on it, your entire image will become utterly cheap, and i guess that's even more attention seeking!! and what's with the tattoo pictures above?? i was actually googling for some real examples of tees with misspelt words but the search result returned me more pictures of that in tattoos.. i thought to myself, the case of clothes may not be the worst, but in the case of tattoos, the one who got it thought it must be something so cool until in the end found out there is such an "interesting" spelling mistake!! OMG, and it's gonna stay on their skins for the entire life, laughed at by many and surely from a mighty tiger turn into a timid little mice??
[lesson learnt] get it right or leave it!! always lookup your dictionary if you are unsure about the spelling~~ :p

    1. If there's words in the t-shirt, i will read the words, see if i'm comfortable with the words, before deciding whether to buy...

  2. Oh? But FCUK is selling very well. :O

    A former colleague was proudly walking around with her new t-shirt sporting "I Am A Tramp" until someone told her the connotation. She never wore it again.

    1. Getting a misspelling on a tattoo is a different story altogether, isn't it? I've read of mat salleh actors getting Chinese character tattoos which didn't quite turn out what it's supposed to be. Gosh!

      I've always wondered how Johnny Depp got rid of his tattoo for Wynona Ryder. I haven't got around to googling it.

  6. Mispelled word are very common already nowadays.

    You have got friends who had gotten married right? Did they show you their wedding albums? Those Bridal photos ones?

    I saw some and was frankly horrified by it. You know some album where they put several photos in a page and then got some wordings? I frequently saw misspelled words in them. And what is more horrifying is some no brain bridal company put songs wording in the album....can you guess what sort of song? You can right????so tasteless...come on lah...people getting married and then they putting song lyrics in the ablum...songs about :Fun sau"(separating) ...

    I also get pissed off when during wedding dinner some people will go and karaoke those unauspicious song...what the heckkk...people getting marry here and there they singing Jacky cheung Fung sau jor yiu pin??? I know la...everyone suppose to be happy mah...but then must see occassion also ler

  10. I actually see spelling errors everywhere especially in China and Japan. They could even make big word blunders on billboards. I could not photograph them as I was either riding on the moving trains or taxi.

    1. So far I have not seen spelling errors on someone's body tattoo yet as I never paid attention to them. Usually the young people are popularly having motifs or fancy tribal patterns being tattooed all over their bodies instead. I can imagine the pain they had to endure. No thanks!

      Delete
    2. I do think that many muscular guys in the gym nowadays who sport their tribal pattern tattoos on their arms or neck look cool and macho. There is some aura of manliness in them. Then I saw some less common tattoos like one guy in the gym who had the whole DiZang Wang Bodhisattva being tattooed in his whole back body with mantras all over. I was shocked and speechless but I refrained from giving my opinion on his choice. I just felt it was a bit disrespectful to sleep on the bed every night with his back facing down.

      Delete
    3. Huh that's interesting an eye opener to see DiZangWang all over the body with mantras. Maybe should find out more from him WhyAskWhy coz he has his reason.

      Delete
  11. If T shirt it is still ok. Perhaps it was intentional? :p

    ReplyDelete
  12. Likewise tattoo will need to be tattooed correctly with no spelling mistake. Like you said...it is permanent...

    ReplyDelete
  13. There's this new show on Astro about those horrible wrongly etched & misspelt tattoos. Aiyoh, which channel is it?

    ReplyDelete
  14. one of the GMs here had a tattoo. Small one only lah. She had it removed by laser. So damn expensive and so darn painful too. O_O

    So, moral of the story...
    Think before going ahead with a tattoo. ;-)

  15. good morning SK and all! I saw quite a lot of misspelt words on t-shirts and they kept me wondering. Were they on purpose or they spelt them wrongly. Anyway, it's their business but if that happened to someone I know, then I would tell the person.

    1. but mind you, I dislike the auto correct in phone messaging. Words intended are sometimes spelt wrongly.

    2. Same here wenn, I don't like auto corrections also, be it in phone or laptop... I prefer to type every single alphabets on my own, hehe.

  32. this reminds me of an commercial here
    on which a tattoo artist, due to his eye deficiency
    he accidentally spell ruby to rudy
    which was a girl's name to guy's
    and the thing is the guy, his customer was buff and masculine

  33. I was dreaming of having a tattoo in the future
    good thing the design i had in mind wasn't
    a word but a bar code haha but then we can never be sure

    ReplyDelete
  34. by the way and erased tattoo looks awful,
    it looks like a scar, it seems like you just remove the
    ink but the design was still there however it was now formed
    by that scar
