Brest In Show

This just in from a senior LiS reporter situated behind enemy lines...

Dear LiS, according to the subject field of this email, Philips Avent seems to be suggesting that mothers would do well do offer their babies the noted French seaport and naval base, Brest. The Finisterre, Brittany town's attractions include the Jardin botanique de l'Hôpital d'Instruction des Armées Clermont-Tonnerre and a botanical garden specialising in endangered species, while the locale was also the setting for the 1982 art film Querelle. What suckling infant would not be truly nourished by all this? OK, so the rest of it is OK (if crushingly dull), but is it really so hard to just read the thing before you send it? And f*** knows why all this nonsense comes to me...

So, it's OK for you to make a mistake in your achingly cunty and desperately unfunny blurb but not for anyone to make a similar mistake (a minor typo - the horror!) in the subject line of an email?
