penicuik Dental practice


I suppose that if you are an architect or designer you can write things how you like. As a conventionally educated bloke it took me some time to accept (though accept is probably not the right word) that sometimes people no longer use capital letters for proper nouns, or at the start of sentences. The new dental practice in Penicuik is clearly So Important That dentist is Capitalised While the town Of penicuik is NOt. Someone, presumably, thought that this sign would look good. Shame on them.

And we wonder why our kids get it wrong.

Let’s hope the dentists at the practice are better at their job than the signwriters / architects that dreamt up this rubbish. e e cummings has a lot to answer for.
