COOKEVILLE, Tenn.  - Putnam County Fair officials blame an advertising company in Georgia for printing signs with the county misspelled.

One sign read "Putnman County Fair" and another read "Putman County Fairgrounds."

According to the Cookeville Herald-Citizen, the signs lined roadways before they were removed.

Ron Chaffin, president of the Putnam County Fair Board, said the carnival at the fair had the Georgia company print the signs.

I once saw some signs printed

I once saw some signs printed for a conference that were misspelled. One in particular said "Minister and Deacon Wives' Auxiliary."Thankfully, they had them redone before the conference. I guess it was either that or changing the doctrine to allow polygamy!

Gotta stop letting prison

Gotta stop letting prison inmates do signs. S.C. car tags had a Sparrow, instead of a Wren, for years because of this. Then they switched to a Palmetto Tree, which turned out to be some kind of Palm Bush.

Heh, heh, Fontana. I

Heh, heh, Fontana. I remember when S.C. had egg on its face because the license plates had the wrong state bird for some years. The state bird is the Carolina wren, but they had some other bird on the license plate.

And do you remember when the University of Florida put a photo of a crocodile on the cover of their annual football program instead of an alligator?
