Just in time for Woofday Wednesday.

English is a challenging language to say the least. I feel lucky its my native tongue; I can't imagine what it would be like to learn.

OTOH, it's good to see veterinarians recycling.

It's not a double-entendre, it's a misspelling, and from the look of those tweets, they're not deliberate.

That said, it's what my friends and I called them when we were teens, but we did it deliberately because we thought it was funny.  We were easily amused.

Whenever I see the spelling 'doughnut' I pronounce it 'doffnut'.

Dog nuts?  Are those like lamb fries?

Thanks to signs, I misspelled doughnut and barbecue until I was in the fourth grade.

My ex-mother-in-law is a kind, caring person, an excellent cook, a talented and creative seamstress, and puts up with far more bullshiat than anyone has a right to ask her to. Great lady all around.

What she's not is a good speller.

She once went on a quest to recreate the donuts (accepted spelling in New England where the world is dictated by Dunkies) her husband remembered from a particular shop in his childhood. Donut holes coated in cinnamon sugar. This involved quite a few attempts with various recipe tweaks, all of which were delicious to the average bystander but not quite matching up to the original. She ended up with a lot of leftovers on her hands, which she packaged up four or six at a time, sealed with her foodsaver, and labeled for distribution to whoever wanted to claim them.

Which is how I ended up with several vacuum sealed bags of round brown dognuts in my freezer.

I didn't want to use up the last bag because I rather enjoyed giggling every time I went to thaw something for dinner.

'Grammy, these dognuts are delicious!'

What they should really be raving about is a steaming pile of pig rectums with a side of bull semen.
I mean, calamari with tartar sauce. Save the dognuts for desert...

If you lived in the Erie, PA area you could have grown to adulthood thinking 'diner' was spelled 'dinor' (as my former sis-in-law did).
