Nice try, NOM. But...

by Jeremy Hooper

In the hours since we pointed out their misspelling of the word "marriage," NOM put forth a new version of their New York TV spot. Only problem....


Hmm. Maybe for this thoroughly uncharming ad, the third time will be the charm?

*FIRST VERSION: NY Consequences [YT] (*now pulled)

*SECOND VERSION: NY Consequences [YT] (*has also been pulled)

*Third version gets the typography right. Too bad the anti-gay messaging remains far-right: They finally got it! [G-A-Y]

**RELATED: Oh, and their associated press release is not mistake-proof either.

Your thoughts

That is SOOOOOOOOOOO funny!

Magaglagher must have had to let her speller/grammar-tographist/proofreader/coffee-fetcher/janitor go, due to economic uncertainties.

Please God, let there be a "teh" in the next revision.

I partially agree with this one. Surely, variety is the spice of life. But it shouldn't be legislated.

We make them stutter!

You know, if I didn't know better, I would suspect that we have someone on the inside over there, intent on making them look like illiterate idiots. :)

Perhaps they're fans of the kid classic Jacob Two-Two?

Maybe the buttons on Maggie's keyboard keeps getting stuck, with all that doughnut glaze on her fingers and all?

Say No to NOM's Same Old Mirage.

Oh, wow, the schadenfreude is finger-licking delicious!

@ Dick Mills: We hope! I knew there was a silver lining in this recession!

I'm loving this. So funny. Thank you!

I'm wondering if all the progress we've made in the past year has given Maggie a brain aneurysm.

So "same same" is a double positive, making it a negative (along with "Yeah Right"). So this must mean NOM is against heterosexual marriage and in favor of homosexual marriage! SNAP!

Considering how much money goes directly to Maggie from her other anti-gay industries, I wouldn't be surprised to find that she's raking a bunch into her pocketbook here as well. She's certainly not spending it on competent help

W-a-a-a-a-a-a-i-t a minute..... wasn't Mizz Carrie Prejean working with NOM? OK, I think the mystery has been solved.
