Only in "Flordia"

'Flordia' Sign On I95 Misspells Florida State College And University Of North Florida

:large

We now know where to get off I-95 for a first-class education: "Flordia."

As first reported by WOKV, a large green interstate sign intended for installation in Jacksonville misspelled Florida twice while directing travelers to two different public institutions of higher learning: the University of North "Flordia" and "Flordia" State College.

According to WJXX, the Arkansas-based sign manufacturer is at fault and will replace the sign, which was left by the side of the road after the mistake was realized, at no cost to Florida taxpayers.

1. Hey - this should be blamed on Arkansas

Here's a serious question - why are we outsourcing the sign-making to another state?? Don't we have sign makers here in Flordia?? My goodness!!

Oh and who is the loser who decided to just place this sign on the side of the road?? Pick it up!! Seriously!!
