Editing to add: It appears this is an Onion-type joke. Never mind.
Cardiff Store Apologises For Offensive Shop Banner
Facepalm. How does that get through even the most cursory system?
FAKE. I’ve lived in Cardiff for over five years and I’ve never seen any shop resembling this. Plus it totally looks Photoshopped and comes from a stupid ‘satire’ site.
Are you sure this is real? Just judging by the other post titles I’d say this is a spoof site:
Helpline Opens To Help Women Addicted To Buying Cushions
New Series Of Rentaghost To Be Filmed In Bedlinog
Labour Party To Organise Piss-Up In A Brewery
But worth a smile:
[Shopkeeper: ] …It’s a massive embarrassment as I don’t have any discocunts in stock.
Shopper Lesley Longarms said: “I popped in to get one for my husband as I’d rather he didn’t touch mine. I was vexed when they told me that they didn’t sell any.”
This is satire, but I’ve worked in banner making and its actually not that implausible that a mistake can creep in. If it gets past the digital stage, people will likely never see the whole banner until its in place, and even then, they aren’t looking for spelling mistakes, so it may be a client that sees it first.
Well that brings back a memory of 12-year-old me at camp, painting a sign for the fun-fair which said, “refrereshments” (fortunately we didn’t offer any, um, special pricing…)
