Smells sloppy

deodorant

I was slow to jump on the bandwagon with this one as I’ve been busy, but I couldn’t let this one go. This promising deodorant was slammed by Taalpuristen for their incorrect use of Dutch and I felt the need to point out that the English is incorrect as well. OK, it’s not Dunglish per se, but talk about a mess: you’ve got the brand names ‘biorythm’ and ‘biorhythm’ both being used and even countries like Denmark can actually spell it right, although the product bears the wrong spelling. Pretty sloppy for a multinational.

Here’s a flashback to folks who couldn’t spell rhythm either:

    And besides, what does deodorant have to do with the dubious science of biorhythms?

    […] It’s also this multinational’s second appearance. […]
