Hump day

To round off Jon C's highly successful TorontoTypoTour, he presents this sign.


Want to ride the camel?

Unfortunately, if you've an inconvient weight, you've an inconvient wait.

Hail the fail

You've surely noticed the increasing number of Uber taxis around our towns and cities.

But, as the BBC is inclined to say, other taxi services are available.

One of them, Hailo, is much smaller than Uber and is trying desperately to win market share, particularly in London.

Unfortunately, Hailo's campaign slogan 'London. We're all over it', due to one of those pesky apostrophe catastrophes, is already showing signs of defeatism.

Behind with breakfast

I've never been keen on the continental breakfast options from hotels. And, after seeing this, Dennis A would probably agree that they're pretty crappy compared to a full English.

Achy Breaky Heart for Billy Ray

Well, here's an interesting result uncovered by Tom L.


Looks like Wales won by a country Miley.

Keeping an eye out

Here's a health clinic that Jon C came across on his TorontoTypoTour.

Clearly it specialises in i problems.


Didn't spot it?

Perhaps you should call in for a checkup.

What Katy did

You can always rely on The Daily Express to maintain its standards.


The article spares us the sordid details so we're left wondering whether it was an American, a French landing strip or a full Brazilian.

Whichever she plumped for, no doubt it excited Willie.

When David met Dafydd

Sent in by Greg L whose friend captured this scene in Cardiff after the Wales v Israel international football match a couple of weeks ago.


'Remember, Bubala, what happens in Cardiff, stays in Cardiff.'

That's no lady

Organisers of the Noah's Ark appeal of Wales were left red-faced after the unveiling of a sign for a street in Cardiff named after the appeal's patron, Shirley Bassey.

It carried a misspelling of the Welsh word for Dame.


Apparently, instead of Y Fonsig, it should have read Y Fonesig.

Knowing Welsh as well as I do (ahem), the incorrect spelling probably translates to something like 'that old Tiger Bay bird'.

Nelson's columns

As tweeted by @socratic, an article in The Times about a documentary made by Peter Ustinov reported this little-known information about the former President of South Africa.

Jonson's elixir of life

Thanks to Geoff L for this one which he spotted on the CBC/Radio-Canada website.

As he says: Who knew that London was plague-riddled as recently as 1910? And that Ben Jonson was there to write a witty play about it?


Given that Jonson was almost 300 years old by then, it's unlikely that he had much of an idea about anything actually.

Sevens o'clock

Angie J was at sixes and sevens when she first clocked this.

Well, at sevens at least.
