WOW, a ringing endorsement for PubicPublic Schools …
You just can’t make this stuff up. South Bend, IN posted a billboard boasting about the “15 best things about our pubic schools.” As Don Suber states, spelling isn’t one of them. Or is it speeling?
If you ever wondered how much difference just one letter can make when it comes to a message, ask the thousands of people who drove by a digital billboard near the intersection of Ironwood and State Road 23 between Thursday and Monday morning.
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.
Lee MacMillan of South Bend said his wife spotted the error on Saturday while sitting in traffic.
“She got home and said, ‘I can’t believe it said what I think it said,’” MacMillan recalls.
“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.
