Special, Non-English Edition

I captured this egregious Spanish misspelling today in a local supermarket.

I might be a little more forgiving if I lived in Vermont, but I live in Texas, and this is way unaccepable.

In these here parts, you hear Spanish spoken in public nearly as often as English. The 2000 census showed the “Hispanic or Latino” population of San Antonio as 58.66%, in case you're interested.

The correct spelling is P-o-b-l-a-n-o, by the way. A Poblano is someone from the Mexican state of Puebla.

You’ll find plenty of Google results for Pablano, but it’s just wrong.

I hope that you have a good holiday weekend, Carlos - whatever kind of peppers you choose to eat :) (lol)
