Lesbian comedian Ellen DeGeneres may be known for her family friendly comedy, but some British fans are pointing out a mistake in a children’s book that is not suitable for kids.
DeGeneres’ new Pixar flick “Finding Dory” has been hyped for years and the tie-in merchandise has started to flood store shelves worldwide. But a British version of a children’s storybook based on the film includes a mistake that wasn’t caught by a cosmopolitan copy editor.
While “spunky” means “courageous” and “determined” in American English, in the United Kingdom, spunk is a slang term for something a lesbian would not normally have all over her face.
"Should we have one of our British editors do a quick once-over on this Dory book?"
