Typing is hard, but you have to be really thick to make a mistake as boneheaded as this.

With just two days to go before the U.K. elections, Conservative Member of Parliament James Duddridge is probably wishing his campaign managers had a little more blood flowing through their brains.

When you see “ERECTION DAY” on a poster, you know someone really “cocked  up,” as the British say.

Well, at least he can laugh about it. Isn’t democracy fun?
