Section heading howler[edit]

It's been miserable here weatherwise for the last few days, so I need something to cheer me up. This article (the featured one for today, Friday 19th February 2016) fits the bill perfectly. The text for the article has apparently been transcluded from some other website, but the process has missed the wonderful schoolboy howler in the 4th heading "After Maths". This should, of course, read "Aftermath", but PLEASE, Wikipedians, PLEASE, can we keep the original in? lol

  In my (happy) schooldays, after Maths we usually had either Geography or Latin, if memory serves me well. Got your primer ready? Shall we have a quick translation test? RaynesParkGuy (talk) 10:21, 19 February 2016 (UTC)

UPDATE - Oh no, someone's corrected the howler while I was writing my original comment! Well spotted, whoever you are - spoilsport! RaynesParkGuy (talk) 10:25, 19 February 2016 (UTC)
