Hilarious and cringeworthy!

Bizarrely, for an article making fun of misspelling, the writers/designers have used locations in Ireland (where spelling is also bad :o ) even though the title is 'Illiterate Britain'. Go figure. :confused:

Ouch! I'm glad that we in the US don't have a monopoly on typos in signs!

Agree -- it is a bit comforting to know that bad spelling and grammar isn't limited to Americans! :o
