A horror story in a British newspaper

rogersgeorge on June 20th, 2010

The crown princess of Sweden just got married, and I wish them the best. Her hubby cleaned up real nice, as they say. The event was well reported on in the European press, including England, and therein lies my horror story.

Normally you would expect, if anybody would get their English right, it would be a British newspaper. I quote from one, who shall remain nameless.

“As the ceremony got under way the church bells peeled and Stockholm’s streets thronged with well-wishers.”

AAK! Bells don’t peel! (Scullery maids peel. Strippers peel.) But bells PEAL!

And in a British publication, spread all over the internet.

The horror!
