Available Or Not


This billboard has been bugging me for several months now. It's on the Eastbound side of Interstate 4 near the intersection of I-75, on the wrong side of the road for the direction it faces. But that's not the problem. The problem is that it says AVALIBLE. I think they meant for it to say AVAILABLE, but they didn't quite get all the letters in there or in the right order. I hate typos, especially big ones. Well, I guess big is relative, but this one is billboard sized.

Then again, I'm a little frightened of what they're selling! Maybe you don't want to get involved...

;-) You're blog is very fun.
