Pompus pumpus pampas bush grass

These posts from our local Freecycle group cracked me up. The poster changed the spelling by the time she reposted the offer, but she still didn’t get it quite right. She at least figured out they’re grasses and not bushes by the time she made the second post.

For the record, it’s pampas grass. I know it’s an easy one to misspell since it’s not something one tends to write every day. Still, most e-mail programs and web browsers offer spellcheck. Don’t ignore those red-underlined words, folks.
