From a BBC article about a shooting at Harvey Nicks:
Also in the restaurant was Bristol University student Natasha Horsey, 20, who said: “My friend came to join us at 8 o’clock and she was not allowed upstairs so I went down to get her.
“They just evacuated us. We were in the middle of supper.”
Bristol University? Natasha Horsey? “supper“? Why not just call her Alice Sloane and be done with it…
Also this week, an article in the indie discussed the shocking reality that more and more women are choosing to have breast enlargements. Later on in the article (and this bit is sadly no longer online), there was a quote from a representative of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons who decried the current trend. Helpfully, the article included the abbreviation for this organisation, even though it wasn’t referred to again. The abbreviation? Well, of course, it’s BAAPS.
Surely shome mishtake?
