Just a quickie that’s gonna give you a laugh.

It’s amazing what the slip of a keypad touch can do:

Ireland's First 50 Meter Poo

Here’s the search that found this little gem (and the image above links to the actual post [FIXED NOW] – they deserve a bit of link-love because TBH I’m still laughing).

Even the spellcheck in FireFox 2.0 (which I got earlier to test out) wouldn’t have saved them from that :)

I really want to let them know put part of me just says no! No prizes for guessing which part is winning :mrgreen:

  7. It’s not a typo on the web page lads :) But I think it does refer to an even bigger typo out there in the real world. It’s out towards Fairview somewhere in around 30 foot letters by the side of the road. Drove past it the other day and was in tears just looking at it.
