Engrish

I was browsing through a local advertisement booklet (one of those that usually get shoved halfway into my letterbox and when it rains the end that sticks out of the letterbox gets soaked and all the pages then get stuck together so that it becomes impossible to read) when I came across this write-up for pancakes served at a certain restaurant.

I don't know why but one of my pet peeves is bad written English...I don't mind broken English when speaking but mistakes in written English is another thing. Those of us who use Microsoft Word even have the convenience of spelling and grammar check...so there's no excuse, right?!

I understand that the writer tried his/her very best to promote this 'stunning' pancake but the weird descriptions really stunned me...
