Somebody really, really wanted me to receive this advertising pamphlet I drunkenly signed up for while visiting Scotland in general and the Ardbeg distillery in particular (a virtual internet-hug to the first who guesses the number of mills they happen to have at Ardbeg).
See, the funny thing is in the address. My real-life address is
Vestervang 32, 4. mf
8000 Aarhus C
Let’s look at Ardbeg’s interpretation of this:
Ok, so barely anything’s NOT wrong with this: Country Denmark vs. Germany. Could sort of make sense, seeing as the country-codes are DK and DE for Denmark and Germany respectively. This is the first correction done in black pen at the left. Next up is the postal code and city: Strangely enough, correct. Then the street: Vestesvang is almost the same as Vestervang. Then the street number: 52 vs 32. Could be my drunk and not too careful hand-writing. Also the floor number is wrong: 7 vs. 4. Could, again, be my hand-writing. This is the second correction in red pen. My name, they got correct. I don’t know whether the blue circled two with some red in it is also a correction or an internal sorting code.
But despite getting the country, street, number, and floor wrong, the pamphlet still reached me. So, now I know, after most of the people knowing before most of the rest of the people, that Ardbeg will release a whisky called Rollercoaster (spelled thusly), and I can order it for £50 a bottle (+ S/H). And now you also know!
