Hauling Like A Brooligan

Silent Witless

My friend David Mace writes that he just received an unsolicited flyer sent out by British Gas with the following strapline:

Make sure you and your family are safe and warm from Carbon Monoxide poisoning.

Seriously, to anyone who thinks that ineptitude in simple grammar doesn’t matter – it does.

Because whatever your excuse for the error, it makes you look thick.

  1. I think British Gas is just being considerate, which is the least it can do seeing it charges more for your Carbon Monoxide poisoning than most other suppliers.
