Misread words

The other day, I was in line at the cafeteria. I glanced at the menu and saw "carbonara with fetticinni and" another word that I could not figure out the last word. Like I said I only glanced at the sign. I could have looked again. I could have read it twice. No one said that I only get one read per line. I was stubborn, I tried do hard to figure out the last word. I knew it had b's and c's and a few vowels in it.

I finally allowed a second glance, because the line hadn't moved. "Brocolli" duh!

Isn't it silly how one misread, misseen or even misheard word can change the meaning, or cause a commotion?
