Mind your U's


Mind your U's

I note that there was an error in the spelling of "favourite" in the full-page advertisement for your newspaper featuring Lan Kwai Fong Holdings chairman Allan Zeman.

That the error was not discovered and corrected is somewhat of a surprise, given the very large size of the text. There is no humor or honor when yo drop the "u" from words such as flavour, colour, harbour and rumour.


There is little more tedious that the whinging pom who thinks that everyone should speak and spell the plummiest of Oxbridge English.

This lamentable subset of Englishness manifests itself as hysterical gibbering against those Americans who spell certain words without a U, as the loonie twit above demonstrates.
