Misreading something can be confusing.

GdkPaintable? Why is that called a pain table? [10 minutes later] 🤦‍♂️

@ayo Remember the website selling writing tools called PenIsland?

@ayo Also on misreading "pain" I love it when you drive through a French village and see those gleeful rotating signs advertising pain for sale.

@neilgall Ah yes, and the infamous ExpertSexChange.
