Written by someone unfamiliar with the pronunciation of Worcestershire, clearly.

Yeah, in England that's something like 'wooster' or 'woocher' or halfway between.  It remains familiar, at least in part because some folks live there.

In America, people look at an unfamiliar word and pronounce it the way it's spelled.  And then their kids and grandkids have no idea what the correct pronunciation originally was. 

At this point?  I'd be hard pressed to call the above incorrect; I'd just say it depends on the American accent.

We say "Wooster", with the "oo" sounding like in "book" or "look", not "hoot" or "shoot".

And having it with a Heinz label is an abomination - the one true maker is Lea & Perrins:

Exactly.  Heinz is for beans or brown sauce.

English spelling and pronunciation haven't quite gotten a divorce, but they are sleeping in separate beds.

A friend of mine saw a Ford truck drive by.

She was on the sidewalk at an intersection. The driver was a woman. This was in Arizona. The truck was a flatbed. This was in Winslow.

Yes. That happened. She was standin' on a corner in Winslow, Arizona and such a fine sight to see, it's a girl my lord in a flatbed Ford.

The driver didn't slow down or look at her though.
