Tesco cock up

Tesco offers 'free erections' on Welsh sign
The supermarket made the blunder on a sign which was supposed to advertise 'free money' from a cashpoint at their Aberystwyth store

The sign on a cash machine at the Tesco store should read "arian am ddim" which means free money.

But the supermarket blundered by saying "codiad am ddim", meaning free erections.

...shoppers believe the supermarket used Google to translate.

I'm always a bit wary of e.g. Google translations but not sure it was a Google cock up
