By any chance, do you fall into that category of people who would visit a restaurant and read the entire menu, only to find out how bad it is made? Many of you must have notice grammatical errors, spacing errors of a bad theme used for creating menus in a club or a restaurant. Somethings a few mistakes are so bad, that people end up sharing the on the Internet for them and others to shame them online.

While this might sound fun to watch, we decided to speak to  Lisa McLendon, the News and Information Track Chair at the University of Kansas and the Bremner Editing Center Coordinator, to know a bit more about why and how are these errors caused. Scroll down if you want to know what insights she gave and some hilarious menu fails examples.

“Word placement, typeface, and kerning are crucial for effective, professional-looking logos and layouts,” McLendon from the University of Kansas said. “If it’s just a few words, all-caps is fine, but it’s harder for people to read longer blocks of text in all caps. It’s also harder for people to read italic or highly stylized type, or type along a curve instead of a line.”

She did say, that we must all give a break to employees working in a restaurant, “Especially if they’re not native speakers because their job is food, not language,” she said about those employees who are asked to work on the menus because of budgeting issues.

“That said, a particularly awful or amusing typo can make a business go viral in a negative way—not something any business wants. The easiest thing is obvious, but many people forget to do it: run a spell-check. Spell-check will catch any typo that is a misspelling (most typos on restaurant menus are). But spell-check won’t catch typos that result in a word that is still a word, just not the word you want.”
