Spelling mistakes really annoy me, especially when they are in official signs or publications. In New Zealand I recently drove past two roadworks signs, officially printed, which were placed there by the "New Zealand Goverment".

When even the government can't spell "Government" you know things are bad.

The Grauniad has a special dispensation. In fact, its subeditors are contractually obliged to insert at least one speling error or tyop per issue, in order to maintain its proud Mancunian traditions.

Cheer up buddy! ;)

It beat someone actually mispelling the name "MiG"! :D I'd love to see that.
