There’s a proofreading job open somewhere …

Malmö is in the final stages of a full-on festoon as the host city for the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest, so this afternoon I took Dr. Darling over to Gustav Adolf’s Torg to see the construction of the “Eurovision Village.”

I walk through this central square every day on my way to and from work, so I haven’t been able to avoid it’s transformation into a multi-media soundstage. But new to the mix today was the following free-standing display that I *think* is supposed to be advertising food that is both “ecological” and “delicious.”

Unfortunate hypen placement

But thanks to an unfortunately placed hyphen, it reads something completely different.

Dr. Darling, the under-cover biologist, assures me that this deadly bacteria has the same name in Swedish, so there’s really no excuse for this not being caught before the posters went to print. Because no matter how you spell E. coli, you definitely don’t want it anywhere near food!
