Do you ever feel guilty about things that aren’t your fault? I do, and when I saw this photo on Grammarly’s Facebook page yesterday I had a flutter of panic: what did I misspell?
(It’s the stuff of nightmares: a post on Grammarly about a misspelling by the word bird…)
I imagine that the artist himself wasn’t an English-speaker (he probably saw ‘Brid’ not as a word, but as a shape). But that doesn’t explain why the US wholesaler, the warehouse assistants who unpacked the boxes, and the shop assistants who placed the items on the shelves failed to pick up on it.
