The swimsuite, is that in a Vegas hotel?

Picture 23

This is a non-story, there’s no girls to be seen, but I like the deliberate use of ’swimsuite’ instead of swimsuit everywhere in this video article (Thanks Jannelies!). It gets my attention as well because a ’suite’ (orginally a French word) is totally different that ’suit’.

    The odd thing is that the suit/suite confusion seems to be popping up in English as well, usually with ’suite’ being written instead of ’suit’ in both the sense of a set of clothes and a legal action!

    Mind you, De Telegraaf has always catered to that segment of the Dutch population with little or no ability in English, so not much of a loss there.
