New rule: If you can't spell the food, you shouldn't be allowed to eat it.
We've already covered 20 food words you need to stop mispronouncing. And then 20 more words after that, since apparently people still stumble over the fact that there is no "x" in espresso. And espresso is definitely one of those words that people -- even people who work in coffee shops -- misspell on a daily basis.

But there are far worse sins than putting an "x" in espresso. And there's one brilliant but under-the-radar Twitter account that's been compiling them all: @CheeseCasadia. Here are our favorites and a list of the ten words that you need to stop misspelling.

10. Casadia / Quesadilla

9. Pork shops / Pork chops

Too bad people had to go and get racist in the comment section. Being illiterate is not unique to any race,nationality, ethnicity, gender...whatever.... Some people are and some people aren't PERIOD. It's just that simple =]

Anyways, I had tears streaming out when I read Lack Toast  and tolerant.

Going by some of their similarly misspelled user names (Cocoa Chanel? I don't think she's trying to be ironic) I'm guessing these are legitimate cases of illiteracy.

While we're throwing vitriol, that should have been "overpaid" not "over paid"....

Its just niggers. Nobody else calls it lack toast and tolerant or flaming young, its that they have ZERO culture and have never been to a restaurant, they only hear these "big words" from rappers then try to emulate it. They all have IQ's lower than 100, can't speak and have very feeble minds.

English language In the United States, the term "Au jus" often is incorrectly used to refer to the broth, rather than meaning "with the broth" as in French. So rather than a "sandwich au jus", the menu may read "sandwich with au jus". It is typically served with the French dip sandwich.
