I had a chuckle reading this sandwich board in the streets of North Sydney. There were sufficient spelling mistakes to warrant taking a photograph with my camera phone.
I wonder if the signwriter couldn’t spell, or was his customer spelling-challenged as well?
How many mistakes can you see?
News Papers should be one word, newspapers.
Smokes is a colloquial expression for cigarettes.
Grocerys should be spelt groceries. A grocer is a dealer in foodstuffs and other household supplies, and comes from the old French word grossier with gross meaning large. When I was young we went to the grocery shop, but these have been mostly supplanted by supermarkets.
The use of 4 as a contraction of for seems rather corny. What is being achieved by this SMS style of banner? I can only suppose this is an artefact of the SMS generation.
My favourite blooper is sallads. I have never seen salad spelt this way!
At least the sign is eye-catching and the shop is very convenient!
