Traffic stopper

A new road sign has been revealed in De Pere, Wisconsin which displays a bit of a boob.

Hertitage?

Well I guess it's pretty much the same age as the rest of her body.

Giving it 110%

Della Farzad thought she'd snagged a bonus when she bought this packet of ham in an Aldi shop in Wakefield and noticed that it contained 110% British Pork.

An Aldi spokesperson explained helpfully that the figures are correct, though they should have been expressed in grams rather than percentages.


So, not correct then.

But wait just a doggone minute, Aldi. Something's not quite right here.

If the amount of pork is, as you affirm, 110g, then what the hell makes up the other 290g of product?

Bull? I think so.

Mind your language

Calls are being made for certain people at the Home Office to be deported after it published this howler on its web site last Thursday.


Can't see it? Try this.

A rose by any other name

We're in Wales again today. This time we're in the vicinity of Camrose, a village in southern Pembrokeshire, situated below the Landsker Line.

So we're in England then. Or, at least, Little England Beyond Wales as it's been known for 400 years or so. Unless you're a Welsh speaker, of course, in which case you might call it English Pembrokeshire. Although you'd say it in Welsh.

Confused? You will be.

Just like the walkers who've encountered this signpost recently. Instead of pointing them in the direction of Camrose, it suggests they might like to visit Cumrose instead.

You remember the old adage?

You have to perambulate in order to ejaculate.

Bested

On a large billboard, the University of South Dakota proves it's the best.


The best at what, exactly?

Apparently, Tena Haraldson, Director of marketing communications and media relations for the university is quoted as saying, 'It happens.'

Though I suspect that's not quite what she said.

Through a glass, darkly

Spotted in Portsmouth by Greg L.


It's not so much that, for some insane reason, the wiper was refitted; even after the glass window had been replaced.

It's the fact that someone's obviously tried to use it.

I wonder if they tried again with a more powerful screen wash.

Come to think of it

It was just a convenience store based in the USA mid-West until I saw this tweet.

Sweet Fanny Adams

It sounds like that's all you'll get if you buy this product.


Looking on the bright side, it's safe to say that there's no added sugar.

Date or weight?

Back after a short break. Thanks for waiting.

Luckily, you've not stopped sending in your typos so thank you very much for that. As a result, there's a bit of catching up to do.

For instance, in October, Cardiff University's recruitment system was due for upgrading.


Trouble is, I can't tell exactly which day in October. And, if it is on one particular day, how can the work last from 8pm until 4am? Sounds more like a reverse backup than an upgrade.

I wonder if Proofreaders are included in the revised list of vacancies?
