a mug’s game

A gift shop at Australia’s Parliament House has withdrawn 200 mugs intended to mark US President Barack Obama’s visit because of a spelling glitch.

The mugs welcomed “Barrack Obama” – a mistake attributed to an official who ordered them. Two were sold before the error was spotted but the rest have since been scrapped.

They would not have been needed anyway – Mr Obama has cancelled his visit to deal with the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
