Between this and the damned Cheerio’s box – not to mention all the signs (“kwik service” and the like) – it’s amazing any of us ever learns to speak properly (or, conversely, may explain why many of us don’t).
What I thought was particularly frustrating about this product was that the big title at the top (is it a brand name?) says “cooked perfect,” while the description in the lower right corner says “fully cooked,” which is correct English usage. Now, I know for sure that my students don’t proofread their writing, but don’t you think it would do a company well to make sure that whatever’s printed on their thousands of product containers is grammatically correct? Is it just me?!
On a side note, they really are yummy meatballs, particularly when cooked for a day or so in a beer-and-ketchup sauce*. Spoon them over crusty bread, cover with cheese and pop them in the oven for a few minutes and you’ve got a fantabulous dinner. Trust me.
*beer-balls recipe – combine 1 12 oz can of beer, room temp, 2 T Worcestershire sauce, 1 T sugar, 1 T cider vinegar and 1 c ketchup in a crock pot, add meatballs and cook on low until you’re ready to eat. If you like a thicker sauce, add 1 t corn starch before turning on the heat…
