For The Second Time This Year, Birmingham, UK, Mistakenly Uses A Picture Of Birmingham, Alabama To Promote Itself

For the second time this year, government officials in Britain's second-largest city, Birmingham (pronounced "Birming’am"), mistakenly used a photograph of the Birmingham, Alabama, (pronounced, "bur-ming-ham") skyline to promote itself, instead of its own city skyline. It's no longer a matter of whether they know what they are doing in Birmingham, UK, it's now also a matter of whether they even know where they are doing it!

The Birmingham City Council in the UK distributed about 720,000 leaflets praising residents for exceeding recycling targets with "Thank You Birmingham!" written over a picture of the Birmingham, Alabama skyline.

Birmingham, Alabama, is not impressed. "How do you not know the landmarks in your own town?" asked Melanie Kearns of the Birmingham, Alabama, Regional Chamber of Commerce.

Isn't Birmingham, UK kind of a dark, old, industrial type city?

Would be hard to mistake that for a Southern U.S. city.
