WATCH YOUR LANGUAGE

I've just received an emailed Amazon Prime promotion headed "Amazon's hit car show" - promoting the return

of that TV motoring show staring Clarkson, May and the other fella.  It is a salutary lesson that in its hurry to

grab our attention, the colour-highlighted line immediately above the images of the three stars blazed out the

following -

#amazonshitcarshow.

Oops.  Did they really want us to think of it as a shit car show?

The lesson is clear.  Watch your language and what you are trying to say.

Reminded me of the company "Pen Island", which sold pens. There website was all one word "penisland". Which was misread as penis land.
