What kind of roll was poor Steven Kolb in for ten years? An egg roll? A Parker House roll? A Kaiser roll?
Only the writer for Yahoo! Style knows. Or maybe her editor knows. Oh, yeah, I forgot: Yahoo! doesn’t employ anyone in that role.
If Gigi Hadid is on a role, what role would that be? Juliet? Ophelia? We’ll have to ask the Yahoo! Style “news editor”:
When it comes to making writing mistakes, this gal is on a roll.
I love me some Parker House rolls. They’re small rolls, invented by a cook at the Parker House Hotel in Boston. So, I’m wondering if that’s the small roll that this writer for Yahoo! Style is referring to:
I’m also pondering the possibility that a small roll somehow played a role in the “model-turned-actress” scoring a small role in a movie.
What kind of roll did Rachel Frederickson’s past play? An egg roll? Or maybe a Kaiser or Parker House roll? Jeez, I wish the writers for yahoo.com would be more specific:
Perhaps if someone working at the Internet giant played the role of an editor, we wouldn’t be faced with these gnawing questions.
Hamlet! Willy Loman! Blanche DuBois! Those are three of the most famous roles in the theater. I guess you could call it a role roll call. Or, if you’re as confused by homophones as the writer for Yahoo! Movies, you’d call it a role call:
A roll call is “the reading aloud of a list of names of people, as in a classroom or military post, to determine who is present or absent.” And that’s what the writer meant.
Let’s just skip over the missing capital letter in Station, shall we? Because that’s not nearly as amusing as the roll model in this article from Yahoo! Shine:
I’m thinking the writer meant something like a Cinnabon sample you’d get at the food court at the mall. It remains to be seen whether she meant that and whether she knows that whether or not, though not incorrect, contains two unnecessary words:
Is the writer the only person who didn’t notice the bit of waistline confusion? Could that actually be a 51-inch waist? Looks like someone has been hitting the Cinnabons.
