    Oops! South Bend billboard error creates embarrassment

    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Billboard errors, street sign errors, lane painting lettering errors.....always bring on a chuckle or two.

    Great comments!

    Sample: "This is a hairy situation. I think somebody at the Blue Water Group may get trimmed from the staff. I'm just itching to see when they fix it."

    I like how they keep blaming everyone but whoever is being quoted. Whenever something is misspelled it is always someone else's fault. "I am a great speller"
    A common mistake people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools. -Douglas Adams

    Heck, if I saw that billboard I'd probably be more inclined to go there than if I'd never seen it. Figure the owners are into Onionesque humor.
