So, there are a couple of songs about Scrabble, and now the latest news is that NCP contractors who painted “20 minuites max parking” on a road in Cambridge have been advised to spend their lunch hours playing the word game – so beloved of, apparently, The Queen, President Obama and Kylie Minogue… and me – in order to revise their spelling skills, according to BBC Cambridgeshire.

And they’re not the only ones who could do with brushing up their sign-writing skills. I spotted this glaring typo the other week in London, which made me wonder who checks the text for these signs before they get printed?

I’m available, London Transport, if your office is too busy to keep on top of this kind of stuff. Just saying.
