    Lived near Ephrata for a while back in the mid 90's while working in Camp Hill. Go a little further south and you'll end up in Intercourse, Blue Ball or even Bird In Hand, PA!

    About 45 minutes to an hour southeast of me. I wonder how long it would have taken for them to fix it if the media wouldn't have ran with the story? My friend posted it on Facebook, I thought he photoshopped it, a few days later it hit the news. Damnyouautocorrect!

    The only thing spelt correctly on this sign is Exit.

    Dyslexia and sign making are not a good combo.

    I grew up not far from this intersection (NY), always thought it was funny.

    Only thing that would make that funnier is if it was near Erection Blvd!!

    Look at the bright side...at least you have signs in Eastern Pa.

    How you know you are west of State College -
    "Go to the end of the street and take a left at the church, stay on that road until you get to where the old (insert any random last name) store was and take a right, you will cross a bridge over a creek (or crick) and down (or dowwn) a little further you will see train tracks on your right. Look for a dirt road. Cross over the tracks and the place is up that road."

    In Texas it would be "Go down that road a piece and take a right at the old Harris place and a tad farther make a left when ya see a bunch of Herefords on your left and look for the place with two pump jacks by the road. It's about two beers from here.".

    The wife and I just took the kids to Dutch Wonderland the other day. In our travels, we passed this sign. Silently, I noticed it but didn't say anything because I wondered if I "saw it wrong". Funny that you just posted it.
