Congrats on getting a picture.

Too many times people see that kind of thing, and figure they'll bring the camera tomorrow and get a picture. It ain't there tomorrow.

Hey, have you ever tried Southbend's pubic schools? They offer some of the breast education a round! What's wrong with them heaving a little civet pride?

"The ad urged people to go to the "southbendon.com" website for a look at the "15 best things about our pubic schools." That's right, the billboard said "pubic" instead of "public" schools. The letter "L" had been left out of the word public."

....someone really needed a higher word count, wtf is this a college paper?

Well, to be fair, people in Indiana tend to need things explained with a little more depth than other people.

Since TFA says that it is a digital billboard, it is easily correctable and will be fixed shortly, I'm sure.

Talk about pubic humiliation, though!
 
2010-09-21 05:49:04 AM  
"Recital" is another one of those dangerous words...

FTA: "We're the ones who made the mistake, not the city or the school," Strickler emphasized.

My God, what has the world come to? A spokesperson for a company stating that the company is wrong and taking responsibility?

End of times, my friends. End of times.

Definitely not a Strickler for detail.

They got 'em by the short 'n' curlies, there.

Best part is, South Bend schools are on probation with the state because of how awful their teachers/students are, and if they dont raise test scores within the next year they'll face state takeover.

And now they can't even get a billboard right (I realize the billboard company is at fault but it still comes back on the schools anyway).

The ad urged people to go to the "southbendon.com" website

WTF?

Lee MacMillan of South Bend said his wife spotted the error on Saturday while sitting in traffic.

Thanks for being vigilant and keeping your head on a swivel.

"She got home and said, 'I can't believe it said what I think it said,'" MacMillan recalls.


Further tests were required.

"So we were out driving around yesterday and sure enough, it had that typo in it. So we took a picture and the rest is history, as they say," MacMillan adds.

Read: attention whores

MacMillan posted the picture he took on Facebook. He also emailed it to his neighbor, South Bend School Superintendent Jim Kapsa.

Hey Jim, it's me, that total dick who's always on the cutting edge making your life a living hell. Since I don't have anything that resembles a life...
 
2010-09-21 07:29:57 AM  
Funny error.

I was really heartened, though, when I read the part about the company responsible for the gaffe actually taking responsibility for it pubically. Rare thing these days, imo.
 
2010-09-21 07:34:19 AM  
Maybe they want you to read it wrong, like The Bead Store.

It's almost Christmas, so it's OK to have No L............
 
2010-09-21 07:42:46 AM  
I also don't like the phrase "15 best things about our public schools." Shouldn't it be "15 great things?" Only one reason is the best overall!

Thank you! But you didn't bold the "we were out driving around" bit. How old are these people? 16 with their brand new licenses?

Ah. My hometown. I went to South Bend pubic schools. I learnt I didn't like schooling no how anyways, specially bout no pubic hairs.

What are you implying, that only 16 year olds need to drive anywhere?

We did not see the missing "L."

Best sentence in the whole article. Was the "L" there? No, we didn't see it. Well then you should have fixed it then.

It's time, Drew. We've earned our tag, we deserve it, and nobody, least of all a denizen of a state that we mainly use as a term of contempt, should deprive us of it.

Last time my library bought new vehicles, the doors has to be painted twice. The "L" was left out of the artwork. It was also left out on several emails and a couple flyers that went to every card-holder over the last couple years.

Wisconsin deserves a Fark tag WAY more than Indiana.

What is there to do in South Bend? Catch the train to Chicago!

In high school health class (back in the stone age), which was actually VD class, the school nurse made this same error. When telling us where to go if we had VD, she wrote Pubic Health Clinic on the board. I lost it. Hands on hips she says to me, "it's NOT that funny." Oh yes it is, lady, yes it is.
