My beef with the letter 'K'

Kaitlin and I feasted on these babies tonight...what I don't understand is why I am so in love with a food that is bad for you disguised as another food that is so bad for you... I must be a glutton for punishment. Those Krabby Patties are so sinfully delicious (as I am typing, all that goes through my head is the 'magically delicious' jingle from the Lucky Charms commercials). Also, I have a MAJOR problem with any product/place of business that misspells on purpose. example: the Kar Korral in Napa. People, people, people... do these business owners think it's a great idea to look stupid?!?! How many people DO NOT know how to spell the word 'car'? I'm sure the big guys were sitting around a table trying to come up with a name like this:
Fat Vinnie: So, uh, Gio- whats' choo wanna name yo bidness?

Hairy Gio: I dunno, we's selling cahs, right? And we in Cali, right? Choo like 'Cahs of the wild west' gettit?! Harumphhahaaa- choo know, like cowboys n' stuff?

Fat Vinnie: Whaddchoo thinkin'?! People might think we's talkin' about da ladeez or sumpin'! I's gotta acks you sumpin'. Whut if these dem cahs were like a cowboy's horse?! where's do dose cowboys keep dem horses?

Hairy Gio: I dunno. Inna cage?

Fat Vinnie: No! It's like a fencing in yahd... you know, with a fence 'round it?

Hairy Gio: Choo mean a COR-ral? That's whut you talkin' about?

Fat Vinnie: Yeah, yeah... 'cept, we gotta make it d'ffrent... how can we's do that?

Hairy Gio: Whaddya think of puttin' a 'K' instead of a 'C'? People'll think we's smaht!

Fat Vinnie: Now you's talkin'...


And so, ladies and gentlemen, the beautiful a classy Napa Valley has a 'Kar Korral' happily doing business about the civilians. I refuse to shop anywhere or purchase any product that uses the wrong spelling on purpose. There are two exceptions to this rule:

1) The business uses a pun to misspell, such as, 'Let's have a fun Thyme!' as a cooking store. Now, that's clever.
2) The business is selling a bite size piece of gummy deliciousness masked as a product of the grill.


p.s. my spell check went HAYWIRE when I tried to check spelling on this post.

Mix the "catchy misspelled business name" business plan with Utahns Love for their basketball team? Voila! You have Utah Carzz! This from the State where most businesses claim they don't need a college trained graphic designer for those things that should have one ... I'm so leaving when I graduate!

P.S. Did you have to use the old R.I. dictionary for this one? ;)

that was freakin hilarious....and here is something funny too. I looked at "Kar Korral" and thought nothing about the "k" being wrong in Kar...just the K being wrong in Korral. Nice job.

Kristen said...

Jenna Lewis Cox said...

oh man! I am such a sucker for fruit snack/fruity candy type of things! I have seen these but not ventured to try yet!

Congrats on the feature from SITs!

Kristin said...

My son is a Spongebob freak...I think he would love those Krabby Patties (although he's probably just play with them instead of eating them)!!

capperson said...

Stopping by from SITS to say hey!!!

Sassypants Wifey said...

Okay, I may have to from this moment on stalk your blog. Not in a creepy way though. I swear we are separated at birth/the brain stem/from a fantastic shoe store at least. When I read sinfully delicious I instantly began singing the lucky charms song. I laughed to tears about the convo with vinny and gio (mostly because my hubs is Italian and I relentlessly tease him, seriously he wanted to name a boy Vito, I swear I am only having girls...) Funny stuff you have here! I will be back often!

The Royal Family said...

I agree! and the krabby patties now that's funny!

tinkalicious said...

I'm with you on the spelling deal. Even with spell check, folks are already dreadful spellers, it just encourages them to interpret their own versions. Don't even get me started on the i/m and text! Shout out for the Sitsta's recognition.

Roxane said...

Congrats on being blogger of the day!
I am also in love with those delicious gummy crabby patties...We had bought them to give out for Halloween and I ate 3/4 of them before the children started coming around! Oops :)

Rachel Ann said...

You are fabously hilarious and quite SAUCY...congrats on your SITS day!!!

I could totally imagine Fat Vinnie and Hairy Gio sitting there having this conversation...cigar hanging out one side of the mouth and a glass of bourbon by them!!! fantastic!

Alicia said...

You are so funny! Thanks for the laugh! That was great. Congratulations on being featured by SITS. I kinda slack off on checking all the featured blogs, I only get to them about once a week. This one was really worth stopping by. You're such a cutie!

Pixeltrash said...

My kids love those gummy krabby patties. I tried one once and spit it out. LOL! Ick! It was like chewing on rubber. I enjoyed this post though and love your take on the Kar Korral.

Enjoy your SITs day!

Tranquility said...

Oh my gosh - I am laughing hysterically. That took me so long to read because my mind wanted to correct it before processing!
So, so funny!

Brenda Jean said...

BAHAHAHAHAHAHA That is so funny and so true. I hate misspelled things. My daughter loves those candy patties, but they are just too chewy for me. I know I'm a fun sucker!

Krab is how the distinguish surimi (imitation crab meat) from real crab meat. Whenever you see Krab on a menu, its cod or whitefish thats been plastered together and flavored like crab. I always thought krabby patties were made of this stuff, and therefore cheap and substandard.
