foot in mouth awards

Check out more beauties here and here at the Plain English Awards!

These were a few of my favourites:

George Bush
"All I can tell you is that when the governor calls, I answer his phone."

Fastway Couriers (T&Cs on their website)

The Carrier shall not be liable for injury or damage to or destruction or loss of the Goods or any other property arising out of or incidental to or in connection with or occurring during the provision of the Services or for the mis-delivery or nondelivery of the Goods and whether or not caused or contributed to by the default (including negligence) of the Carrier or any agent, servant or officer of the Carrier or any other person entitled to the benefit of these conditions.

Virgin Trains (response to
Web User magazine about problems booking online)
Moving forwards, we as Virgin Trains are looking to take ownership of the flow in question to apply our pricing structure, thus resulting in this journey search appearing in the new category-matrix format. The pricing of this particular flow is an issue going back to 1996 and it is not something that we can change until 2008 at the earliest. I hope this makes the situation clear.
