Quality Inn & Suites in Houston zings Manti Te’o with brilliant sign (photo)


The Sportress has been staying away from pretty much every new and increasingly disturbing development in the Manti Te’o Fake Girlfriend Hoax Saga, partly because it’s so bizarre but mainly because I’m lazy and don’t feel like, you know, reading all the stuff and doing all that work.

But when low hanging fruit tangentially related to the story comes along (like this previous gem), you better believe I’m going to be all over it.

As is the case with this nugget of brilliance, courtesy of a Quality Inn & Suites franchisee (are they franchises? I don’t know, probably) in Houston, Texas. Some wisenheimer decided to have a little fun with the sordid story by placing a well-crafted zinger on the establishment’s outdoor sign.


Ha. Gold. But what about a second imaginary friend? And you don’t request an extra cot? What then.

Still, whoever came up with that brilliant piece of comedy probably stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night. If employees of Quality Inn & Suites are allowed to stay at rival hotel/motel places. You know, like how people who work at Pepsi aren’t allowed to drink Coke and vice versa. Yeah.
