Typos in print media are not uncommon these days, even in leading national newspapers!
This title caught my attention and after reading, I figured this one was a "Royal Typo"

Saw this note pasted on a tree, seemed uncommon, we mostly see "Lost" notices and rarely a "Found" one, that too for a pet cat, but seems like there are some good Samaritans around

Doesn't look photoshopped. Looks like a bus somewhere in AP/TG. And as to whose, I see just one poor soul there. :thumbup:

Sorry to pick on this. Someone removed couple of "letters" (from the English "alphabet").

Note :: I am NOT a pundit in English. This (above one) is a very common mistake that a lot of people make. Using the opportunity to share what someone taught me once.
