(NEWSER) – A University of South Dakota billboard erected east of Sioux Falls on Interstate 90 boasts that it's the "Best in the Dakota's," adding an apostrophe that shouldn't be there, the Argus Leader reports.
The director of the university's marketing department tells the Leader that the apostrophe had been taken out when the design was proofed, but the wrong version was then sent to the billboard company. Give the college points for its sense of humor: It sent out a tweet Monday congratulating "sharp and observant" observers for passing its "grammar quiz" and noted a new corrected board would be up soon. (No, the Namibian town of !Nami#nus is not one big typo.)
Congrats to all of our sharp and observant @usd students and friends. You passed this grammar quiz! Look for our new board soon.— Univ of South Dakota (@usd) December 28, 2015
