    I mentioned elsewhere that I often see the Virgin Speed Update thread as Virgin Speed Dating.

    I also find it difficult to look at this placard without reading it as Marital Arts.

    I thought this must have been a news story - but then I realised it was in the Daily Mail...

    I've just seen the new Pure Gym sign for the first time and, obscured by the winter trees, it appeared to say Purge 'Em.

    Very often I also read martial arts as marital arts. There may be something in that as it seems quite an art staying married these days.

    Marvellous moment on RTÉ telly tonight, when a chat-show host declared a poor woman to be "a great embarrassment" - when he meant "ambassador"...

    I have just seen the delivery van from the Tasty Pantry.


    I was slightly shocked for a second...

    A rare poster on here has just mentioned a Salvation Army Summer Fair on Facebook.

    I read Salivation Ann Summers Fair and was checking my availability, when I realised my error.

    When going past the gliding club at Ladford Fields I often look at the sign and think of Gilding Club and, in my minds eye, picture loads of old folk with small hammers and rolls of gold leaf.
    Dunno why, I just do.

    I used to misread Heddlu as knobheads but after today's experience with the Welsh constabulary I take it all bach :)
