Get Involved

Sometimes our quest to protect grammar requires action, not words. Which is satisfyingly ironic I suppose.

Restaurant menus are not massively verbose tomes. Nor – as the food-snobs among you are doubtless aware – should they ever be.

Whilst dining recently in the comfortable but contrived surroundings of Newcastle 'GastroPub' As You Like It, I felt compelled to take matters into my own hands:

I advise that all GrammarBlog readers and contributors take a red pen along to restaurants in future. Remember to add to your graffiti.

Oh and yes &ndash sadly I hadn't the time nor the inclination to highlight every grammatical and linguistic horror on the menu; one look at the smorgasbord of errors and trite capitalisations in the above photo ought to give you an indication of just how dreadful the whole thing was.

The revolution starts here. Let's issue red pens to the world.

I'd like some "Red wine Sauce" with extra capitals please.
