Cobblers to punctuation

Thanks to Dennis A who captured this one in, well, Garforth.


Actually, I've just checked the Garforth Cobbler's website where, amongst an array of typos, the sign is proudly featured.

I hope he never has to engrave anything that requires plurals or apostrophes.

Oops. Spoke too soon.

  1. Like the Yorkshire stonemason who was asked to chisel "She Was Thine" on a headstone. When the stone was delivered, it read "She Was Thin"

    The client complained, obviously, saying "You've missed the "e" off the headstone"

    After a few days, the headstone came back with the inscription:



    "Ee, She Was Thin"
