Misspelt Headline of the Day: Oylmpic Torch Bearer

Add caption
This photo of a tattoo on an Olympic torch bearer on BBC's website came with this explanation:

"A woman who got a new tattoo to celebrate her role in the Olympic torch relay was shocked to discover it had been spelt incorrectly."

"Spelt" is a kind of wheat. The Brits need to learn to speak English.


  1. Maybe it was clever irony with the headline? Actually, that issue with the tattoo will be pretty easy for a good artist to fix.

  2. My dictionary also defines spelt as "Alternative past tense and past participle of spell"

  3. This is a joke. Spell that JOKE. It is not a serious critique on the language.
