Gooble Gooble
updated: Nov 06, 2012, 10:07 AM

By Charles Brewster

No, that is not a misprint, at least on my part. Read about this yesterday and had to check my collection of TJ'S stickers when I got home and sure enough TJ's did indeed misspell gobble. LOL. I wonder if Google will sue for copyright infringement?

Ha! Maybe Google's subliminal advertising campaign.

615, that is where I heard about it too, but seeing was believing. CB.

May be intentional because the "Os" on the bottom make up the eyes of a turkey. Look closely and you'll see it.

I agree with 624.

Much ado about nothing here.

Love Trader Joe's!

Did you take that photo with your iPhone5? Looks a bit grainy.

I see the turkey too. Great marketing!

...maybe that's German for the sound a turkey makes?

You're right that Gobble was misspelled but "Gooble" is hardly an infringement on Google.

No, not via a cell phone. And maybe TJ'S was being intentally comical. Some blog posters think so. Would be nice if TJ's responded to this though. CB

I think it depends on where the unfortunate turkeys were raised. Free-range, wild birds, living free and happy, mumble "gooble, gooble, gooble..." as they hunt for their dinners, intending never to be yours. The others of the species, never ever free in the wild, mispronounce. TJ's prides itself on free range ...although that's confusing when the bird has never enjoyed freedom.

I agree with 624. Looks like they were trying to be artistic with the eyes.

The sound that a turkey makes is more like aaggaggalagga. So gooble or gobble matters not.

A four-eyed mutant turkey... interesting.

It's probably just a mistake. It's kinda amusing but is it that big of a deal? Almost everything they have made for them comes from developing countries so it was probably just a lost in translation mistake.

Cute! Maybe that's the vegan pronunciation??

 

 COMMENT 340032 agree helpful negative off topic

Nothing artistic or cute about misspelling, we have enough of that already today. They wrote the word and said: Hey eyes! Still wrong.

Wasn't "gooble" one of the words Sarah Palin invented?

No GBOB, that was Monica Lowenski

Trader Joe's sticker collection?

C'mon, it's too obviously intentional, and I think it's both clever and very cute. A touch of humor in this context is welcome as far as I'm concerned.
