Signs of the Times

One of the little treats driving the #30 to Corio along Thomson Road is anticipating what imaginative spelling (& grammar) I will find on the signs outside the fruit shop on the corner of Princess Road. 

See what I mean for yourself.

 (For the competitive among you, there are 12 mistakes I can find in these 9 pics. Can you find them all?)

As you can see there is more than one way to spell a word wrongly.

I've started to wonder if it's a deliberate ploy to attract attention!

Fair to say it's got mine.

PS. Thanks for the comments, a are thing on Holt Press these days. Birchy, I've tried looking for the EODD online and can only find books to buy, do you have something you can email me on it?

Marcus, this is how you spell the names of the genetically modified fruit and vegetables. Didn't you know?

Yes I can email you some notes on EODD. What is your email address? Can you SMS it to me?

You might find that you lose weight by only eating foods that are spelt incorrectly...

Jon Gabriel of The Gabriel Method has some interesting information about how the body holds on to fat if it thinks it is being starved. Apparently the key is to eat appropriately and regularly. I'm still looking for the Turkish Delight diet.
