my grammar could hit the target from that distance

The revolution has begun. No longer will we put up with dodgy speeling, misplaced apostrophes' or improper; punctuation? P.S. pointing out bad grammar in postings is banned. To justify this I'm applying a form of grammatical 'absolute privilege', as the public interest in publishing mistakes far outweighs the cost to the public of making further mistakes. Call me a hypocrite if you will, but it works in Westminster.

Worst of all

A couple from the Isle of Wight's Bestival.

The first is a gem, as it turns the advert from being an invitation ("Reveller's Retreat") into an instruction to go away ("Revellers Retreat").


It seems a shame to put so much effort into a sign, and then fall at the last.

Shame on you!

That first one should read Revellers' Retreat!

Actually, the cafe only had one seat in it, so I'm spot on. That's a lie by the way.
