I Work In Dumbsville

Postby Coppermine » Fri Mar 09, 2007 4:28 pm

Or, more appropriately, I work in Hagerstown... they're synonymous:

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) The city of Hagerstown corrected a municipal spelling error Thursday, 20 years after committing it.
A sign directing drivers to "Municpal Stadium" was replaced with one displaying the proper spelling, said Erik Kline, city traffic control supervisor.

The sign was erected in the mid- to late 1980s, but the error went uncorrected until The (Hagerstown) Herald-Mail brought it to City Hall's attention this week, prompted by a reader's complaint.

Kline said the longtime tolerance for the misspelled sign shouldn't reflect poorly on the western Maryland city of 38,000.

"I think it was a mistake that was made. I don't know that it necessarily makes us look bad," Kline said.


"Municpal" Stadium is home of the single A Hagerstown Suns... I always try to go on Thirsty Thursday for dollar beer nights, but the stadium sucks. In any case, this was posted on the Light Side and I just had to bring it over considering I'm typing this from Hagerstown.

I took the liberty of updating the Wikipedia entry for Hagerstown, MD. An honor like this shouldn't go unnoticed.

Fixed it ;-D

For some reason the original link left out the Poor Spellers entry.

And Madison, I'm guessing I didn't notice because I already know where Municipal Stadium is... but still, that's not excuse, i should have been all over this and making fun of them years ago.

Yeah, yet I don't work for the city of Hagerstown... I don't really live there either, I just work there. So I'd argue that I'm at least less guilty than residents and city officials. :-D
