My idea of improving passengers was that we'd be given works of philosophy to read and Bach cantatas to listen to as we sailed through the Norfolk countryside, not losing weight as a result of having to walk because the bus didn't show :cry:

Here's an amusing Welsh translation gaffe, on a road sign...

From the school of anatomically challenged fiction:-

'...a shrivelled member confirmed to be that of the severed penis of William Powell.'

At first glance, it looked like a 'typo'...

Sign on side of a van: "IFF(UK)"

I think the whole FCUK marketing strategy is based on what appears to be a typo :lol:

The Kindle edition of a US SF magazine currently promises Shorts Tories in its contents page.

Must be the junior wing of the young Conservatives...

Alternatively, sounds a bit like a jazz pianist of the 1930s.

OK, these aren't typos, so I'm probably being very naughty posting them here. But...what is it with some of the writers' guidelines that are knocking around lately??!?

Here are a couple:

"xxxxx Press publishes literary fiction. These are books such as The Secret Garden or Moby Dick. They don't have a speculative element, they aren't fantasy, but they aren't real accounts either. That makes them literary fiction."

And another spotted today...

"Any genre will be accepted as long as it is in the horror genre."

Oh, my. :?

Ross, did you buy it at The Gap?

Moving quickly on...

I've just read an interview with a lady rocker who shall remain nameless, in which she stated, 'I really like to make vegetables'...

Have been checking through my White Noise bits for #19 and discovered that in a moment of madness instead of Vinnie Chong I'd typed Vinnie Jones :roll:
