Where’s The Beef?
It’s In The Spray

Looking to beef up your mojo? Burger King may have just the thing. The home of the Whopper has launched a men's body spray called "Flame." The company describes the spray as "the scent of seduction with a hint of flame-broiled meat." The fragrance is on sale at New York City retailer Ricky's NYC in stores and online for a limited time for $3.99.

How Do Youe Spell BBQ?
Just as there's not one dominant version of barbecue, there's not one dominant version of its correct spelling. No less of an authority than the Oxford English Dictionary lists four different spellings and as shown above, Lay's Potato Chips have used at least three spellings in the past few years.

For example:
BBQ: Arthur Bryants
Bar-B-Q: Gates, LC's, Zarda's
Bar-B-Que: Hayward's, Smokehouse
B-B-Q: Wyandot
Barbeque: Winslow's, Famous Dave's
Barbecue: KC Masterpiece, Oklahoma Joe's, Fiorella's Jack Stack

The Oxford English Dictionary might not take a stand on the correct spelling, but the bible of journalism, the AP Stylebook, is not afraid to put its foot down. It's entry reads: "barbecue: Not barbeque or Bar-B-Q.". To add that extra oomph of authority, same goes for spell-check in Microsoft Word.
