Robyn's Secret Passage
Pubic Service Announcement
When I was twelve years old I got a stamp kit. I make up a stamp that said "HAMILTON PUBIC LIBRARY" and stamped it inside a library book next to the real "HAMILTON PUBLIC LIBRARY". Jesus, I was funny.
It's interesting how just taking one letter away from "public" makes it into a completely different word. I stumbled across a site description on Yahoo that had used the word "pubic" instead of "public". This got me thinking, so I searched for other sites that had the word public instead of public. I was shocked at how many there were.
A lot of the sites were educational institutions and government departments. The phrase "disgruntled employee" springs to mind...
The sites I've found have got the word "pubic" in the pages title (shown in the browser's title bar) where "public" should be. Most of the time the rest of the page doesn't mention "pubic" again. For the web page designer, it's probably quite easy to overlook, but it would also be quite a choice joke to play.
This site's been up for a few years now, and I've noticed two things usually happen to the sites I have up. They either get corrected, or stay pubic forever. And I am pleased to note that new pubic sites are appearing all the time.
So, here for your web viewing pleasure, is a list of pubic sites.
