The War on Error

Peer ’embarassed’ by bank economists. BBC no doubt embarrassed by spelling mistake…


Ahhh. Wouldn’t the world would be a better place if we could sing, rather than sign, our life away?

Looks like this ‘exiting’ new bar on the ‘coroner’ of Beatty and Stoke Newington Road is dead cool (quite literally).

“Take them footwear off or you’re be sorry…” Country pub sign written by someone who knows more about cask conditioning and pickled eggs than they do apostrophes and effective font size (by no means a bad thing).

Ah – ‘inconveniece’, the long-lost relative of inconvenience.

Access must be a real problem with plants in and out doors (indoor! Outdoor! Both one word!). And when it comes to plurals, looks like sorry really is the hardest word.

Interesting one. Because of the (presumably) misplaced apostrophe, this sign only refers to one parking bay. So if you went ahead and parked in one of the other bays, you technically wouldn’t be doing anything wrong. Right?
