Signs of the Times No. 5: Pinilit

Obviously, the ad copywriters at Dole Philippines have run out of ideas.

Who the hell names their kids Pinellopy. People are bound to pronounce this name pin-YEL-yo-py. Not that there’s a Y before that first E, but that it’s going to be there by force of habit.

Maybe they didn’t want people to pronounce her name pen-ELOWP. That wouldn’t jive with pineapple.
