Cookbooks for the Norwegian Olympic Team
Chefs for the Norwegian Olympic Team accidentally ordered 15,000 eggs instead of the 1,500 they had intended. Apparently the error was caused by translation software and a misunderstanding of the South Korean numbering system.
I am completely sympathetic. Once at the end of a long road trip I ordered four chicken strips at a fast food place on the 401. The counter person gave me four orders of chicken strips, 16 all together. Fortunately the people I was travelling with were hungry.
