I don't get it XD

On the subject of language, I saw an incredibly irritating grammar mistake recently.
On a sign for a snack bar:
Sandwiches
Pittas
Salads

I don't understand what you mean Confused Is it something like "L'abeille coule" ? Confused (before anyone asks : no, I won't explain Tire la langue )

I got a lot of English spell check to do... if you have some free time Sarah... Tire la langue

It's not really a joke - it's more just pointing out how "flies" can be a verb or a noun, and "like" can be a conjunction or a verb. English can "verb" words quite easily. Sourire
