Only when they need to hammer the message in.

Actually, that's not bad....

I pick up a real estate insert from today's newspaper. Big ad down the bottom states never go to the orange anymore

Huh? I look again. No, office (printed on an orange background)

My eyes are going, or the font is too close. There were no 'casualties as tomato hits Italy. It was a tornado.

Despite what I thought I read in the information one of my colleagues brought in today, Melchior de Hondecoeter (a C17th Dutch painter that we've got 6 paintings by at "work") did not have a cousin called Jan Weetabix! It's Weenix.

Scrolling down a supermarket website page in the gardening/outdoors section and I see what looks like baracuda butter

Huh?
Baracuda is the brand name, buffer - for protecting swimming pool surfaces from erosion.

(the fish is spelt barracuda, or just called barra here)

The headline above the television column in the "i", reviewing Alma's Not Normal, apparently calls it "this joyful portrait of Northern Line"... a sitcom about the London Underground?

No, it's set in Bolton, and it says "Northern life".

The antique toys site I was just trying to look at is experiencing an internal error, not an intestinal one...

Accidentally added a mental "i" to the Blow Pens art toy. It has a little pump that blows air over a felt tip pen to make an airbrush effect.

A company that makes bottled cocktails is called LAIBA. Yeah, I had to read that a couple of times.

Not strictly a Youlgreave, but near enough:

Times Radio newsreader: "The breaking news this lunchtime is that Wales is joining Scotland..."

Wow, that's pretty incredible. Is it going to move north?

[after longish pause] "... in making vaccine passports mandatory".

Oh - I was hoping that in a couple of years I would drive into Lancashire to be welcomed with signs saying "Croeso i Reged".

It's happened again. For the second time today, I've misinterpreted a sentence by mentally cutting it off prematurely. This time it was from a Radio 4 announcer: "Today, his guests are fighting it out in the dishwasher..."

It was actually "in the dishwasher versus kitchen sink debate".
