Can I Get a Spellcheck, Please??

Last week, I was driving to the mall. I passed a sign that was out in front of a local church. It was one of those signs where they can slide the letters in and write whatever they want to on it. Well, this is what it read:

Has Jesus touched your soul?
Special Massage
Sunday 10am


Hmmmm..Now what kind of church is this exactly?!? I laughed.

I was then driving past the same sign 2 days ago. It read:

Has Jesus touched your soul?
Special Message
Sunday 10am


Ohhhhhh, ok. They just forgot to use spellcheck.

***UPDATE: I have had a couple people email me and tell me they didn't get it, so for those who are getting confused let me help ya out a little. On the drive past the sign the first time the word is spelled "massage," as in a rub down with hot oil. The second time it was spelled "message" as in something important I need to relay to you.***

You should send that in to the website Crummy Church Signs (google it - I don't know the exact address).

Bet they would have gotten better attendance if they left the sign they way it was originally posted!

HA!

AT least they got smart and FIXED it!!!

Lucille said...

Which is funnier...the fact that you saw it or that you had to explain it? JUST KIDDING!

I can look at something I've done and NOT see an error to save my life.

Take care,

:)

Heh! I actually find they often have spelling mistakes on those signs out front. But this one was a particularly (in)appropriate one!! :)

I was thinking it was a holy ghost touch of some kind :-)Message makes much more sense.

Oh this is a funny one! Thanks for sharing. I get desert and dessert confused till Hubby told me Dessert had two s's because you want more dessert. Hmmm. Not sure on the logic, but I haven't forgotten it.

that's funny! At least they figured it out!!

We have a dental advertisement sign in our area that says "turn right here" with a left pointing arrow. Cracks me up everytime. LOL

btw, if you want to post up the award I gave you, you can copy it from Kimmy's site: http://talesofablenderkimmy.blogspot.com/2008/01/thank-you.html

I just remembered mine's right-click protected so you weren't able to copy it to your own computer!! sorry!

I think they did not misspell the word the first time, just a play on words that they got tired of trying to explain when people called saying "You spelled message wrong." I thought the first way was pretty neat, as in Jesus would be giving everyone's soul a free massage on Sunday. Everyone could use one of those.

I agree with Beth, they probably would get better attendance with "massage" than "message" LOL Sometimes I wonder about people...
