Billboard promoting historic dockyard accidentally portrays historic sodomy



Here's a billboard promoting the Portsmouth Historic Dockyard in Great Britain. I don't think the advertisers intended to emphasize the role of sodomy in British naval dominance, but as Winston Churchill said, "Don't talk to me about naval tradition. It's nothing but rum, sodomy, and the lash." Via.

Go here for The Register's idea for the next ad in the campaign.
