Can you spot what’s wrong with this photo?

It might look like your stock standard suburban parking lot, but a photo of a street in Brockton, Massachusetts, has gone viral thanks to one hilarious blunder.

While there’s not much to the snap other than your normal Stop sign and cars parked on what appears to be a newly paved street, Twitter has had a field day with the huge glaring mistake – which you won’t be able to unsee once you’ve clocked it.

Can you see it?

For those struggling to see why the pic has gone viral, put your spelling cap on, and you’ll quickly spot it.

Yep, whoever painted the sign somehow managed to write ‘SOTP’ instead of ‘STOP’.

Marc Larocque, reporter for The Enterprise, spotted the typo and shared it on Twitter.


While locals were happy to have a bit of a laugh at the spelling mistake, one person who hasn’t been enjoying the attention was Tom Troy, property owner Sharbell Development Corp.

NJ.com reported last year Tom claimed the letters were painted by a private contract “who cannot spell.”

That was back in November, with Marc tweeting today that the letters had finally been fixed.
