I arrived back in Le Havre this morning following my holiday in Plymouth. Once again, the weather was disappointing—no sign of the 'barbecue summer' we were promised by the Met Office. Still, I had an enjoyable eleven days or so and finally got round to visiting the Eden Project, which I've been meaning to do for years. Since it rained most days, we spent a lot of time going round the shops, which gave me an idea for a new feature on The English Blog.
There are plenty of websites which have pictures of funny signs or linguistically-challenged signs, but I thought it would be interesting to look at shop name signs which feature puns or wordplay. So here's number one in what I hope will be a regular slot.
