Just Like It Sounds

Last night the wife and I were shopping as saw that a local supermarket had whole salmon for £10. The sign on the fish counter said “Whole salmon – £10. Place your order now.” This fit into the wife’s menu for Boxing Day.

The girl behind at the counter, a product of the British education system and undoubtedly with a GCSE in English, took our order. When we told her what we wanted she dutifully wrote in the order book, “Hole Samon”. We walked away shaking our heads.
