Workers install misspelled, racy street sign

Families surprised to live on 'Topless Terrace'

Headline Goes Here

NEW ZEALAND - Families in a New Zealand neighborhood discovered how important a single letter can be for their address.

The Wellington City Council needed to replace the street signs for Torless Terrace. However, after workers finished installing the signs, families noticed a glaring mistake: the "r" was replaced by a "p," making the street name "Topless Terrace."

According to The Dominion Post, vandals have targeted the sign in the past with white paint or tape. Families originally thought the new signs were altered. However, after realizing it was an embarrassing mistake, homeowners notified the council.

Council members told The Dominion Post the mistake was likely caused by a "dodgy spellcheck."
