Last week I passed by a restaurant advertising "muscles in a light cream
sauce".

Whose muscles? ;-)

Then again, I have been known to do the occasional typo, too. I'm
generally fairly forgiving when it comes to email errors--and I hope that
people provide me with the same kind of leeway. I am much more critical
of mistakes in printed documents.
