Ooops! Try again. (Thanks, Naomi.)

When officials asked for the Welsh translation of a road sign, they thought the reply was what they needed. Unfortunately, the e-mail response to Swansea council said in Welsh: “I am not in the office at the moment. Send any work to be translated”. So that was what went up under the English version which barred lorries from a road near a supermarket.

via BBC News – E-mail error ends up on road sign.

ER sign is hurting

It was simply a case of the right bulbs going out at the wrong time. But passers-by couldn’t be blamed for thinking a smirking prankster, or something much darker, was responsible when they looked up at the neon sign for Elmhurst Hospital in Queens, N.Y., which then displayed the ominous phrase “I’m hurt.”

Clam chowder anyone? Ivar’s is the best in Seattle, I think.

He has been called the greatest self-promoter in the history of Seattle. And now, more than 24 years after he died at age 79, Ivar Haglund apparently has managed one more fantastic stunt.

Underwater billboards that date to around 1954. Anchored to the bottom of Puget Sound with concrete footings. Yes, at the bottom of Puget Sound. At around 55 to 80 feet in depth, depending on the tide, and near the shore.

You know, just in case you were in a personal submarine cruising along Elliott Bay, or Edmonds, or Alki Point.

More via Seattle Times Newspaper.

Three of the stainless steel billboards have been brought up in the last month.
