Creative spelling!

I pass this shop every day on my way to work... and it drives me nuts!

How would you pronounce the word ‘liqour’? I can’t help thinking ‘lick our’ ... not a nice thought first thing in the morning.

And what about this? It jumped out at me as I passed the window of a shop in our local mall.

Even Google asked me: ‘Did you mean: bangle’... sadly without a question mark! Oh dear!

I've heard the lack of spelling ability that seems to be all-pervasive these days blamed on the mobile phone and text messages ... I don't know megz_mum, but it's getting worse.

Ah .. maybe your right thumper ;)

It is funny to see when the spelling is not quite right. I always wonder if people don't see the misspelling or are they just to lazy to correct it.
