What exactly is a "vechile," anyway? Sounds spicy...


This is the kind of shit I'm glad I didn't see on my own because I'm sure I would have crashed my car trying to snap a picture or get a better look at it (or bursting into giggles or tears--or maybe both).

Thankfully, JENNA not only saw this sign, but also lived to take a picture and tell the tale. She says: I have been driving under this sign for about a year now, and I have never noticed this until today. Right next to it is the same sign, but it's spelled perfectly. I risked life, limb, and the front bumper of my precious Brunhilda to get this for ya, just to ask "aren't these signs mass produced?!"

If those signs are mass-produced, then somebody made a huge FAIL. I'm hoping this hideously misspelled sign is, like, one in a million...but somehow I doubt it.

Thanks, JENNA, for snapping this great picture!

Well evidently the error is much more widespread than one would think. Sent ya an email with some links.

That's not even a simple transposition. Complete FAIL!

@ Bridgete: Whenever I look at that sign, I think how funny it would be if there existed something called a "vechile pepper." :)

@ LadyStyx: Holy hell, I had no idea! :) Thank you--your e-mail was very informative. And it kinda makes me want to go cringe or cry some more...

@ Mama Grammarphile: Hahaha! That wouldn't surprise me. Maybe they're even MADE by the same moron! :) Love you, too!
