Special Delivery

by David Dickerson with the assistance of Nathan Fung and Mark Halpin

Teams were delivered a copy of a Chinese restaurant menu that included a number of typos. Reading the correct English letters for the typo locations in order gave the message WHO HERE CAN READ CHINESE?

The Chinese text in the menu also contained a number of typos. The incorrect characters in order gave the message CONFUCIUS SAYS THE COMPOUND WORD YOU SEEK IS WATER BIRD giving the answer WATER BIRD.
