Do Not Go Genital Into That Good Night

By now I’m sure most of you have seen this billboard flash across your favorite news feed.


The story behind it is pretty self-explanatory. The city of South Bend, Indiana wanted to run a billboard campaign to promote their public school system. Unfortunately, the final product contained a rather embarrassing misspelling. This faux pas causes us to laugh for two reasons. First is the bathroom humor the billboard suggests. The other is the simple fact that the South Bend public school system wants to show off their finer points but can’t even make sure their own billboard is free of spelling errors. What could be worse than that? How about the same error on a church marquee?


I saw this a while back and just had to stop to take a picture. What’s worse is that the message on the other side of the sign contains the same error. Perhaps the person who changes the sign was educated in South Bend.
