Lisa: A Satisfied Ewe

1) I hate the word 'ewe.' I don't know why, exactly. I think it's picturing the spelling of the word while I say it, since I don't have an aversion to saying 'you.' It's just so completely NOT spelled phonetically. It is saying, "Just try to sound me out, young reader! I am ready to trick you, HAHAHAHA!"

Whatever, shut up. It's distracting.

2) I appreciate a good pun as much as the next person. Puns in product and/or business names can be clever, incorporating multiple relevant meanings. But a pun for no reason is just using the WRONG WORD.

Case in point:

Mutton is not on the menu, and this restaurant's clientele does not include sheep. So...why? And this is just gratuitous:

That said, their Navajo Tacos are tasty.

My favorite part of that dinner:
Grandma: Sarah, here's the lighter fare menu!
Sarah: ... Thanks... Grandma...

Okay, the word "ewe" has never bothered me before, but I find both of those signs disturbing. Particularly, the second one. I'm glad the tacos were good!

P.S. Where is that place? I'm assuming it's somewhere in the central part of the state? I'll have to look for it when I'm out auditing.
