English speakers cannot agree on the proper name and spelling of a certain shiny metal. Last night I noticed that the folks at Carrefour have compromised by spelling it Aluminuim:

A quick Google search reveals 90,000+ hits for that spelling; 80,400,000 for the proper spelling; and 60,200,000 for some weird alternate spelling.

I guess CarreFour doesnt want to offend any potential customers! That's a great photo.
