Ice Cream What Now? Willesden

What happened here? Is this a new frozen treat fad I’ve yet to hear of or is it possible that someone is unfamiliar with the concept of an ice cream cone? Maybe this could just the result of whoever wrote the sign being given their instructions in a Lancashire accent?

Answers on a postcard please….

Hopefully this is just a typo but I’m sufficiently ill educated in the world of bridal wear to wonder whether this might actually be a thing. Going to the loo whilst wearing a wedding dress can’t be the easiest (I’ve watched enough Big Fat Gypsy Weddings to ascertain that) so I’m wondering if an enterprising dress designer has solved this problem by using the space available underneath the skirt to install some kind of elegant and discreet plumbing system for that special day.

Speak this aloud and it sounds a little like Elvish, type it into google translate and discover that this bears no relation to any language…real or otherwise. This is a kind of free form improvised jazz approach to language and I for one like it.

Eagle eyed Shit Londoner Chris Lonie spotted this sign in a newsagents window offering help to struggling students and observes “A plagiarist who can’t spell plagiarism. If you’re getting this person to write your assignments, maybe it’s time you changed course…?”

He has a point there.

At first glance this looks like a simple case of misspelling. Perhaps the person who wrote this was swigfaced enough at XOYO that they dropped the C and didn’t realise. However to a confirmed geek, nerd or Poindexter like myself this means something else entirely. A Bith to me, is a race of alien from Star Wars with a predilection for playing instantly recognisable space jazz like THIS .

I know this and know I have wasted my life.
