I'm sure that we have all sniggered at spelling mistakes in the past, but I saw one today that was particularly poignant (especially for Lopster).
An ironing board advertised in Woolies as an "ironing bored".

My daughter's spelling is hilarious. One notable example was to replace the "a" with a "u" in the word "can't"............try reading that with a straight face on parents evening !!!!!!!!!

Excellent examples - thanks!
Another one I spotted recently in the window of Fillers sandwich shop was "Terkey"!
I do wish teachers would stop teaching children to spell phonetically, or maybe I don't as I enjoy the end result!!!

Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea

Its letter perfect in it's weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.
