Of language and communication - don't "abolish" it

I’m not one of those tourists who makes fun of the local English-language signs, especially since the average 12-year old Korean’s English is better than my Korean is after studying for 12 years. But still, now and then I can’t help but laugh. I took my six students to my favorite bakery for breakfast. There I learned that that all products are “handmade, baked and abolished everyday.” If the purpose of language is to communicate, mission accomplished.
