bloody hell, you'll probably be electrocuted if you plug that in, with the way they're willing to transpose letters (& maybe wires) at will.

Just got an e-mail shot with this product in it.

This has somehow made it to production!

When I was in the print industry, this kind of thing happened all the time.
The company I used to work for designed and printed the local LTA's quarterly magazine.

To save costs the LTA started to do the origination themselves.

Wasn't until the job was in finishing when we noticed the page for ladies results.

The heading was resluts.

Unfortunatley I was part of the team that put this together



In my defence, it was put together by the US team and we (the UK team) missed the proof before it went to print

Maybe they found pictures of Solihul and simply decided against using any of them!

Ah, fond memories of the old Kanak Bahar on Tring Highstreet...

The menu included the following gems:

".....cursed gralic...." (crushed garlic?)
"....dicced chiken picces....." (diced chicken pieces?)
"....mongo chutney...." (HA!)
"....Carlsbarg....." (Tasted so bad the Danes exported it)

H&S is complete bonkers. Tying yourself off whilst on roof ladder? After 33 years I feel at home on one of those as I do on the ground.

I do not need some spotty H&S office bod to tell me what is dangerous or not. I ALREADY KNOW, THAT IS WHY I'M STILL ALIVE.

Sorry, but it's gone craaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa....

For a few I remember,
Orders of service for a funeral, instead of the Commendation they had Condemnation.
Another I heard of had misspelled the deceased's name, Cynthia, with a Cun...

Not published as such, but one of the local churches had some of the childrens drawings on the wall. One had the text 'Jesus is my best fiend'

Most of the Indian takeaways around my town sell Korma with various meats, usually lamb or chicken. However, one of them appears to have misspelled it on their menu, calling it a "Kurma" instead. They must have been kicking themselves when they spotted that after printing 10,000 of them!

ah the joys of transliteration of a word in English from a language which uses the different script entirely

regional variation South Indians mostly say Kurma/Kuruma but Mughals called it Qorma/Korma.

bit like us and the welsh Taxi and for them Tacsi.....No my example is just dumbing down gone too far.
