They’d need to buy more than one. Do you ever have anything of substance or value to add to this forum outside of pointlessly trolling?

Speaking correct spelling, is there anything wrong with this? Easy mistake maybe...

Maybe spelling it with two letter 'n's would have fallen foul of copyright

I was much amused to see that IOM “Newspapers” website reported that a man made “lude” comments to a female police officer. Obviously worse than rude but not quite lewd, so lude it was.

Maybe it was a different sort of 'lude?

There isn't one, apparently. Do you not read previous posts? The organisers have spelt it that way for 45 years.

My error.

No, you were correct. Whoever misspelled it 45 years ago was wrong and allowed to get away with it.

There’s a real howler in the IoM Today/Mananan Festival article/press release.

Don’t know if the press release or it’s interpretation by Iomtoday journalists is at fault, but this is pure drivel

“The programme sees something very different on Saturday, June 22, with a production of the opera the Sleeping Queen, written by Gilbert and Sullivan, along with the playwright Michael Balfe.”

Michael William Balfe was an Irish composer, 28 operas. He composed  Sleeping Queen to a libretto by Brougham Farnie. Nothing to do with G&S, who didn’t get together until 1871, a year after Balfe died!
