At least on average it evens out.

Things like that make me want to bang my head against the wall. In the Co-op there're signs up saying 'alcohol cannot be sold to under 18s' when it should, of course, be 'alcohol may not be sold to under 18s' as it is not a physical impossibility.

Aaargh, how hard is it to get these things right?

I remember the sign in Costcutter when it said something like "It is illegal to sell alcohol to someone who is, or appears to be, under the age of 18".
No it's not!

I think this sort of thing should be stamped out immediately. I don't know if anyone reads their Sports Fed emails, but one line in today's read "If your the next Jonny Wilkinson…."
I personally keep my "The Next Jonny Wilkinson" in a handy carry pouch, also available from Next.
Anyway, I therefore propose, in addition to the famous cricket test, a grammar test for all who wish to live in Britain.
This should rid us of, er, well, most people, and we can all live a perfectly normal pedantic (But correct) life. We few, we happy few….

Oh, one more thing.
No 2 more things.
I did actually alter a Leamington and Warwick District Council banner which read "Seasons Greetings". Any fule kno that shoudl be "Seasons Greeting"
Secondly, has anyone thought of proclaiming the existence – at least in thought – of WMMS? I feel I should leave the announcement to you, Mr Barnard, but I'd be happy to help.

We announced it a while ago – I forget on whose blog or when, but it definitely happened. I think we should all announce it big-style though, and get loads of people involved.
