Now you know why it only costs $3.99

I saw this Halloween decoration on sale at Jo-Ann Crafts in Renton, WA the other day. “Trick or Treak”? The least they could do was have a native English-speaker look over the stuff at some point before the product got sent out to all the stores. They probably made thousands of these cheap, crappy, ugly, and misspelled halloween decorations.

Is “treak” some reference I’m unfamiliar with? Or intended to be some mixture of “trick” and “freak”? (Or “tweak”? Is Dracula a tweaker? It might explain the bug eyes.) I don’t think so. I think this is what happens when a company is so cheap that no one gets paid to do any quality control.

(Sorry the photo’s got some blur. It was a camera phone pic.)
