NOM Spelling FAIL

by Jeremy Hooper

This is the final frame of NOM's new New York marriage ad (debuting today on NY TV):

200905281045-1

And we're the ones who threaten school kids?!?!

**UPDATE: OMG, we didn't even catch it until commenter Carolyn Marie Fugit pointed it out. But if you look at the above again, you will also see that they wrote "same" twice!

**UPDATE2: They've put out a new version of their ad that corrects the word "marriage." However, they left the "same same."

Your thoughts

How can they be taken anywhere near seriously anymore? Come on, a 'protector' of marriage should at least be able to spell the word! Oh wait! Maybe we've all been fighting them on the wrong thing all along! They're against marraige equality, not marriage equality!!

We're also suppose to say no to same same sex marriage. Twice the same!

If they're against same same marriage, does that mean they're for opposite opposite marriage, which would be gay marriage?

NOM are sick hateful people, but is a typo really news? Come on now folks.

"but is a typo really news? Come on now folks."

That they have now disseminated not one, but two versions on a much ballyhooed ad that both feature glaring typos? It's not "news" and nobody claimed it was. But it's funny and gay-centric, which is a big part of what we do around here, William.

Oh, I love to see them fail. I hope they blew their entire ad budget on this shit. Thanks for the laugh!
