Check out why this grocery list left people on stitches

A list of the items that a shopper needs to purchase can be referred to as a shopping list. Consumers frequently compile shopping lists prior to their subsequent trips to the supermarket in order to ensure that they do not forget any necessary items (a grocery list). By the year 2000 B.C., the shopping list had already gained widespread popularity in ancient Mesopotamia. The biblical period and the Roman period both left behind shopping lists that have been preserved. 

The actual shopping list might be something as straightforward as a scrap of paper or might involve a more involved system. There are pads with magnets for storing incremental lists in the home, and typically they are kept on the refrigerator. However, any magnetic clip with scraps of paper can be used to achieve the same result.

There is even a specialized device available that can dispense a strip of paper from a roll, which can then be used in a shopping list. Some shopping carts come equipped with a small clipboard that can be used to carry shopping lists. 

Because of the way it is written, many people found themselves laughing out loud when they saw this grocery list, which you can find below. It caused quite a stir on social media.
