A “Party Time" birthday banner bought from retailer B&M; went viral after it was misspelled and celebrated “Pimty Tare" instead.

Fran Taylor, who writes parenting blog Whinge Whinge Wine, found the mistake when preparing for her son's fourth birthday.


She wrote on her Facebook page:

“That's right, it's Pimty Tare in this house."
“Thanks for nothing B&M; Stores, you big pile of useless cheap shite."
“At least he's only four tomorrow so he won't f****** realize."

Fran, from Tonbridge in Kent, England said she had been drinking Pimm's tea in the sunshine and refused to spend time re-threading the banner.

She wrote:

“To the humorless bastards pointing out that one could rethread it … No. Shan't. And you're not invited to my pimty."

She shared her tale on Twitter as well.


But Fran teamed up with a fellow blogger to offer the viral banner after seeing the humor in it.

However, B&M; quickly got in touch to apologize for the mistake.

The company said:

"First of all, we hope your son has a brilliant 4th birthday pimty – they grow up too quickly!"
"Secondly, thanks for letting us know about this. We're sorry to see this – not sure how it's happened, so we'll look into it for you!"
“We know it's too late for you, but your sacrifice may allow us to save others … it's a noble deed."

The store chain offered to send out a gift to make up for the error, before signing off:

“Thanks, the big pile of useless cheap shite, B&M.;"





Fran, who has been running her blog for more than three years, said:

"That was nice given it wasn't really a complaint as such. It just made us laugh."
"We are definitely keeping the banner – it's a new family tradition."

There's a certain kind of person people expect to vote for Donald Trump, whether they're real or not.

On July 21, Twitter user @malkatz asked internet users to do a fascinating thought experiment:

which fictional characters seem like they "absolutely voted for Trump."

If you're a hardcore Trump-supporter, there's no better place to have your wedding than one of his golf clubs.

A New Jersey couple having a MAGA-themed wedding (yes, really) at Trump's Bedminster resort even went so far as to tuck Trump 2020 flags into the brides dress.
