  1. Well, most of us haven’t smelt a colon, but we all have a pretty good idea… Oh my stars!

  2. It took me a moment to get what “colon” meant in those sentences!
    Haven’t these people heard about the city of Cologne where the Eau de Cologne originaly comes from??? I don’t know how these people pronounce “Cologne” but certainly not as it should be pronounced otherwise they wouldn’t write it “colon”! Education education!!!! 😤

    Anyway that was a very funny post, Janet! Thank you for sharing with us! 😆

  3. I paused for a moment, it has never occurred to me that people would spell ‘cologne’ that way. It seems fairly common. I suppose American’s tend to spell somewhat more phonetically than us Brits, but it is hilarious.
