On a blackboard in one doorway of a pub: NO EXSIT.

But it might not have been a typo; it could have been telling someone's ex they weren't allowed to sit there.

While I can see "damned a drain" as being a fat-finger typo that spellchecker didn't catch, the following two seem to be prime indicators of lack of reading.

Noodles, tofu and spring onion, an attempt at some sort of ramshackle Ramen.. It filled the whole and that was that.
I'm sure this is a typo, but I also think it's better than the correct phrase.

Think of the pain I go through every time I have to proof read some of our company's output now that the decision has been taken that we should principally address the USAnian market.

While (or, grammarians, whilst?) reviewing some building construction drawings today, I came across a note labeling some parts as "Insulted Metal Panels".  Placing tongue in cheek, I countered with "This product does not appear in the specifications". 
What a difference an eh makes.
