In my fascination with bad church signs, I once came across this one:

It reads:

‘ANAL CONVENTION MAY 9_12

LORD WE – JUST WANT TO THANK YOU”

You know, you never really understood the value of spellcheck until this picture, did ya? I guess that is supposed to be some type of abbreviation for an annual convention, but it didn’t make it exactly. All I know is that if I was at an “Anal Convention,” I don’t think my chosen words would be, “Lord, we just want to thank you.”

Just a reminder to all you people with access to your church sign: get someone to check your sign. It tells a lot about you to the community around you. What does this community know? That they either can’t spell or they are thankful to have a large group of anal people gathered together for four days at a convention.  Note to self: if you can help it, avoid at all cost the anal convention for the year.

Misery.
