Only in Shreveport: Check Out This Epic Sign Fail
Ah, yes. The genius signmakers in Shreveport have done it yet again.
Do you remember back in 2018 when Shreveport, LA went viral for having its very own West 71th Street?
Yep, that really happened. Someone approved, then someone printed, and then someone installed a sign in Shreveport that said 'W. 71th St.' instead of the grammatically correct 'W. 71st St.'
Guess what? The geniuses in Shreveport are back at it again. This sign was spotted by alert resident Shane VonSenden. Take a look at the sign in question, which has since been removed from Shreveport's Caddo Common Park on Texas Avenue near Municipal Auditorium.
I don't know about you, but even with a Haughton education, that math doesn't work. Now, you'd think this sign would have had a few sets of eyes on it before it was put up and that someone would have caught the mistake, but this one slipped through the cracks. It happens, we're human. But, of course, the online comedians came out in droves. Here are a few of our favorite responses. Enjoy!

Remember the street sign a couple of years ago?? W 71th street! Whoever is in charge of these needs to “re-sign”
