I don't understand what form of translation fail could produce "Cote da Sure" in place of what should be Cote d'Azur. Then, I don't understand what form of design fail could produce this:
I ran a couple of errands across town today and popped into a couple of shops I don't usually get to. I didn't buy anything.
