I've Always Wanted To Visit Great Brittan

Spotted in the maps section of an Idaho Falls Book Store:

Great Britain vs Great Brittan Idaho Falls Barnes and Noble Bookstore Typo

If I looked hard enough, I bet I could do one of these 'oops' posts every day...
Please Share it! :)

DANG, I guess the folks at the book store forgot to look in the dictionary a few aisles over before they labeled their shelves.

If you wanted to do a post like this every time you saw an "oops" in the real world it would keep you busy. Very busy.

But that would eat up all your time, you'd lose your job and not be able to afford an internet connection or even a computer. Then you'd have to abandon this blog which would piss off a lot of people.

Just something to think about...

Spelled how it sounds. Kinda.
I hear they have great dental care there, though.

Hey Brandon, I read your post about KKK and Nazi, now you sound like a grammar nazi. Love your sense of humor and diligence to bring out all the grammar culprits to light.
I hope you dont out me and my blog ;-)

They coulda looked down from their label maker for a second and check the spelling on ONE OF THE BOOKS!

I think they might have got mixed up with Brittany in France.

Ah the old spelling of Britain...

Ariel said...

Actually, it's only missing a space, as it's referring to the great "Brit tan", rumored to have made an appearance after an unusually mild summer. The pale, pasty Brits were transformed into George Hamiltons. Sadly, it has not been seen since.

Of all places in a bookstore.

LOL if you actually came to Great Britain, you could well find the spelling is shit here too. if I can find some good examples, I'll happily post them.

Ask any Brit who shops at a greengrocers or on market stalls and they'll tell you about bad spelling.....Potatoe's, Tomatoz, Egg's....in fact anything that has an S on the end seems to require a Z as a replacement, or an unnecessary apostrophe. As it's from one end of the country to the other I think there must be a Greengrocer school somewhere that teaches this crap!

That's what happens when Britain hangs out with Ireland... it gets drunk and loses its identity.
