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.

(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.

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.

Plum wasn't an original color (or colour, as you prefer.) There has been a lot of body work as well. The normal Ford Escort doesn't come with mammary glands.

Possibly, but by your reaction it is acutely obvious that you are intimately aware of the effect of TRUTH! on one.

By the way, how is the body work holding up? If it is beginning to sag, I do know they make bras for a Ford Escort.
