There are no active watches, warnings or advisories

Did you mean MASHPEE?

Traffic signs have been up for months in Hyannis near the airport rotary with MASHPEE misspelled as MASPHEE and apparently nobody noticed it...

I was tipped off to this traffic sign spelling fail right after the signs were installed in early 2012 as part of the Hyannis airport rotary project. I have been sitting on this and watching the news to see if anybody else would notice it. Kind of a social experiment if you will. I'm a little shocked that apparently no one else noticed this. The photo speaks for itself...

FAIL

The truth is that MASPHEE is a common misspelling of MASHPEE. Maybe that's why no one noticed it. Check it out: "MASPHEE" Google.

The Cape Cod Times got real close to spotting it a year ago. Here is actual video footage of the encounter.

The biggest fail here is that either no one noticed, or no one cares. I'm not sure which is worse.
