Adelaide Internet Caf’e

In Newcastle upon Tyne UK there’s a particularly egregious example of apostrophe abuse that I’ve been meaning to capture on camera for some time. Unfortunately, it’s in a rather unsavoury part of the city and not somewhere it’s particularly advisable to start waving a digital camera around (especially if it entails explaining why you’re taking a photo of someone’s business).

Rather than taking the picture himself, Adam points us all to the helpful folks at Google Maps, where the sign is visible via Street View:

It appears that the accent mark slid off the E in CAFÉ and ended up as an apostrophe.

I live in Newcastle and may have to organise a trip to see this shocking example of misspelling for myself. Incredible. Thanks for the great and relevant blog!
