Ten spelling mistakes that will haunt you forever – with pictures

Former England spin bowler Ashley Giles proudly boasts the nickname King of Spain after a set of mugs proclaiming him as the ‘King of Spin’ came back with misprints.

That mistake went down in cricketing folklore. Fortunately everyone saw the funny side but not all typos have a happy ending.

Here’s a selection of our favourite spelling mistakes – mistakes that have made their authors look like the mugs:-

Moral of the story? A typo can make either you or your company into a laughing stock.

If you’ve got some copy to write and quality is important to you, give us a call. After all, no one wants to make a mistake in the pubic domain.

Ok, all this writing has made me hungry folks so you’ll have to excuse me – I’m off for a vag sandwich.
