The New York Times’ Editors Don’t Care About Salad Dressing

We’ve always imagined that everything inside the New York Times’ walls is edited to perfection. Any modifiers that are caught dangling are immediately corrected and there sure as hell aren’t any misspellings.

Apparently that’s not the case. This picture, tweeted by Lexi Mainland, the Times’ Social Media Editor, shows two salad dressing bottles in the company’s cafeteria that boldly display typos.

Either the paper’s editors (creepily) only eat plain salads, or the cafeteria workers are sick of being micromanaged and have thus taken to passive aggressive methods to show their displeasure.

Or maybe it’s just a minor mistake that no one has bothered to correct yet. But we doubt that.
