You misspelled it - it's G-E-N-I-U-S genius.

So it was misspelled and the correct spelling is above in MY post, herein quoted. The punctuation of my post did also have a mistake BUT NOT THE SPELLING!

The correct punctuation is:

"You misspelled it - it's G-E-N-I-U-S. i.e, 'genius.' "

 ;D

It was you who went off at a tangent. GUINNESS is not spelled GENIUS.

How do you know, you wretched, over-toothed beast? Besides, the act you described is just impossible. A cow will not fit under my chin.

I believe that picture of Jabba-the-Hut has deranged - well, at least your memory. I have only one chin, goober.

Maybe at the angle you look at it from, bozo.

(Desperate attempt to get the thread back near the track and away from a slanging match)
Didn't Mr Beckham get a tatoo with the wrong spelling of Victoria (In Hindi)?
Anyway, by pet hate on this score was a company called "Peoples phone". Surely they could afford at least one of the apostrophes? It seems they have been taken over, so perhaps there's hope for the world yet.

BC - there was smoething wrong with the spelling, but I can't remember which language it was in. You could be right about Hindi.

Yup - Hindi

From BBC news http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/1044797.stm

Football player David Beckham has misspelt his wife's name on his latest tattoo.

The tattoo on his left forearm is incorrect, spelling Victoria with an added "h" as Vihctoria.

The Manchester United player reportedly decided to have his wife's name in Hindi script because he felt it would be less "tacky" than having it in English.

Pademesh Gupta, editor of Hindi-language magazine Purvai said it was a "silly mistake".

He told BBC News Online: "The name Victoria is well known in India because of Queen Victoria. It is in a Hindi dictionary."

He added: "Whoever did the tattoo was probably English and didn't know Hindi."

Back to misspelled tats - when Kelly Holmes, our top woman athlete, won something important a while back one of her female fans decided it would be a good idea to show support by having her hero's name tattooed across her back - Kelly Homes.
The press said it looked like an advert for a building company.

Because they can't find a scraper big enough?

How outré!

Would the Butler please remove this fellow from the club? Even as a member's guest, he cannot make comments about a lady, no matter how true, that are crude.
