That can happen with billboards, too, as it did in Durham County, Great Britain.
Many of you have heard of the hit series The Walking Dead on AMC, right? I didn't watch it, but I have heard a lot about it. It's a show about a zombie apocalypse, and it's supposed to be really good.
It seems that it has made its way over to the British Isles now. Of course, they have to advertise it, right?
How about right next to a funeral home?

Yeah, that part didn't go over quite as well.
"An advertising firm has been blasted after a billboard for The Walking Dead was put on the wall of a funeral parlour in Consett, County Durham.Personally, *I* find it hilarious, but I may not have if I'd been headed to dear ol' Grandpa's funeral in there when I saw it.
An apology has been issued after the ad for The Walking Dead appeared on the side of The Co-operative Funeralcare.
Susan Jones, from the Willow Burn Hospice, in nearby Lanchester, said that while some people may see the funny side, others would not."
Thankfully, as soon as the company realized how bad this looked, they quickly removed it.
This was before anybody complained.
"Councillor Owen Temple, who represents the Consett area on Durham County Council, said he was aware of the billboard, but had not received any complaints.Gotta love that British resolve (not to mention gift for understatement).
He said: 'Some will be amused, but others may be offended. It left me unmoved.'
How about you? Hilarious or distasteful?
Any other hilariously inappropriate ad placements (or any other similar occurrences) you can think of?
