An incorrect space - or the lack of an appropriate one - between words and letters can make or break even the most eloquent of texts. Sometimes it happens because of human error. Other times it's down to the "kerning" settings on your computer. Kerning is the process of spacing, and some computer typefaces do this automatically while others don't do it at all.

Spaces might technically be invisible, but their power is no less great because of this. And there's no better way to demonstrate their power than with this hilarious list of spacing fails. Compiled by Bored Panda, the pictures below will hopefully remind you of how damaging - and how funny - incorrect spacing can be. Don't forget to vote for the best!
