RE: Endless Shrimp

Dear Red Lobster:

I just received an email announcement regarding your endless shrimp promotion that gave me pause. See below.

endless shrimp ends soon

“Endless shrimp ends soon,” eh? Do we need to have a talk about the definition of the word “endless”? I think we might.

end⋅less

–adjective

1. having or seeming to have no end, limit, or conclusion; boundless; infinite; interminable; incessant: an endless series of complaints; Time is endless.
2. made continuous, as by joining the two ends of a single length: an endless chain or belt.

Origin:
bef. 900; ME endelees, OE endelēas. See end 1 , -less

Related forms:

end⋅less⋅ly, adverb
end⋅less⋅ness, noun
Synonyms:
1. limitless, illimitable, unending, unceasing, continuous, perpetual. See eternal.

I’m starting to wonder if you might not be sharing a copywriter with Taco Bell. As I told them, call me if you need somebody good. I’ll hook you up.

Love,

Kristen

    Hysterical! Sadly, Red Lobster is in the majority. Too many companies are committing the same sins.
