It's not the good news that's so amusing:
Waitrose dumps Fox News in protest over remarks about Barack Obama
... Waitrose, which prides itself more on its "quality food, honestly priced" than staring down rightwing attack dogs, has become the latest firm to pull its ads from Fox News after presenter Glenn Beck's remarks about the US president.
It's this innocuous snippet buried further down in the piece:
An angry Waitrose shopper who emailed the chain to express his distaste over its decision "to be associated with this particular form of rightwing cant" received an apology last week.
Which prompted this particularly embarrassing retort in the comments section:
I guess those who patronise Waitrose write longhand and don't have access to a spellchecker.
Apparently, right-winger illiteracy is not a North American phenomenon.
