OUHK’s Sandwich Filler is Alpha Alpha Not Alfalfa

Anyone else notice the long-running blunder and recent correction of the TV advertisement about the “Open for Learning” programs at the Open University of Hong Kong?

The copywriter was probably British and/or had zero knowledge of American literature (e.g Steinbeck) when it was decided to script in: “I want Alpha Alpha in my sandwich”. Hmmm, what do Greek letters taste like? Perhaps enrolling at OUHK will enlighten?
