How hilarious - and also that they sent out leaflets to celebrate their recycling record! Wonder how many were recycled?!!

I think its hilarious.

The Skyline resembles nothing familiar!

do you think they'd manage to unscramble this well-known saying: egg, face, on...?

Even if the picture had been correct, sending leaflets to everyone praising them for recycling is barking - especially when it cost £15,000.

I think it is admirable of the council to recycle an existing skyline. Skylines take millions of years to biodegrade and can constitute a trip hazard for low-flying aircraft.

That is funny. Bet who ever designed the leaflets just googled to get a picture of brum....

It's funny, but scarey to think that such dim people have access to a huge amount of public funding.

I think its probably something to do with the fact that they outsource a lot of things these days- a graphic designer in Cardiff probably doesn't have an intimate knowledge of the B'ham skyline!
