Fact don't change because you don't like them (an emotional response).

A parish council has been left red-faced after its minibus spelled out a rude message when the vehicle's sliding door was left open.

An eagle-eyed shopper spotted the Churchill and Langford Minibus Society while on a pre-Christmas trip to Weston-super-Mare last weekend.

Unfortunately for the trip's organisers, when the sliding door opened it masked over several of the letters, contracting the original sign to the more risque Churchill Anus Society.

The image of the minibus was posted on Reddit before it was picked up by local newspapers.

The Somersetlive website reported that one local resident was visiting Asda for some last minute Christmas shopping when they spotted the minibus with the offending slogan.

They said: 'I just had to take this picture while Christmas shopping at Asda. Wonder how many more amusing words out there when opening sliding doors.'

Laura Batt, who books the minibus said: 'We have been made aware of this situation and this will be addressed in the New Year as we have had a shortage of funds and not been in a position to have the signage amended before.

'Obviously no offence was intended to the general public. The wording will be corrected as soon as possible. We have been running our Minibus Society for over 42 years and have not had any issues previously.'

The minibus society purchased a new 12-seater vehicle in 2016 following a grant from the Department of Transport.

The society, which is based outside Bristol, uses the minibus to provide transport for people in rural areas. Their new vehicle - with the unfortunate sign, is equipped to deal with disabled passengers.

"Exxxtra" in post #132 reminds me of an oldie:

A man is checking into a hotel with his wife and two young children. Glancing at his kids the man says to the desk clerk "I hope the porn in our room is disabled."

The clerk says "It's just regular porn, you sick bastard."

Sorry!

Seems to be station CKIX-FM 99.1 FM.

Found myself looking up the Berne List for Canadian station call letters. Callsigns begin CF, CH, CJ, CK, 10 and continue for a couple more letters.

It may well be true, but likely the recipe hasn't changed only the label. Since you've been eating them all these years without repercussions just go for it. :yum:

Shoppers did a double-take after spotting the word ‘sail’ in the window of a shop in Gerrards Cross.

Lighting Matters has the word plastered in its window instead of the word ‘sale’ – after its owner ironically found the signs cheaply in a sale – leaving shoppers perplexed.

Reader Andy Hill wrote in to the Bucks Free Press saying:”I’m not sure if it was deliberate but it has definitely caught everyone’s attention and [is] the talking point of the town.”

Manager Ian Peaple said a number of shoppers had come into the store to tell him the word had been spelt incorrectly.

He said: “It has certainly garnered a lot of interest. It’s giving people a laugh in the High Street.

“Some people have come in to tell us about the error saying, ‘we don’t want you to become the laughing stock of the High Street’.

“It seems to be pulling people in.”
Confession time...

I have committed this very same abomination. :eek:

I'm not sure whether to put it down to a moment of divided attention, extreme fatigue or plain bone idleness.

Are you sure you wanted to post that in this thread tw? There's another nice thread called UNI LECTURERS WARNED AGAINST USING ALL-CAPS BECAUSE IT MIGHT UPSET STUDENTS where it may be more fitting.

Armed bars? Like the bartender's shotgun under the counter?

Or maybe the bar from over thar has a stick.

Gravdigr 01-21-2019 02:08 PM

Shoulda been 'armed with bars'?


ETA: There is a product called 'armed bars' (alarmed window bars), but, I'm still not sure that's what they threatened the crew with.

Gravdigr 01-21-2019 02:15 PM

Also "Special Boast Service"...

They have commandos just for bragging?

The funny thing is, they often claim that getting the disease is better for the immune system than the vaccine (Melanie's Marvelous Measles), so the analogy becomes "get shot with larger bullets to build up an immunity to larger bullets".

I made a quick trip to what passes for our local supermarket this morning.
There were several laminated signs apologising for the limited number of open checkouts but staff had been redeployed to keep the shelves full and customers were asked to 'bare with us'.

I decided not to take up their kind invitation.
I think the nation is suffering enough at present. ;)

In the Annapolis Safeway, I once encountered what the sign billed as "Naval Oranges." After a pause to appreciate this, I examined several; not one purple inked anchor was to be found.

Even for Annapolis, the home of the Naval Academy, this was rather going overboard.

BigV 04-22-2020 12:40 PM

I thought that was the main ingredient of naval jelly. Or would that be naval marmalade?

Urbane Guerrilla 04-22-2020 05:23 PM

In the circumstance I'd go with marmalade.

tw 04-24-2020 05:39 AM

Why would anyone put jelly in their navel?
