Any Birmingham is Fine

At least they got the city name right.

Birmingham City Council has admitted sending out leaflets which showed its US namesake's skyline instead.

It's OK with them.

The mayor of Birmingham, Alabama, Larry P Langford, said he took the mistake as a compliment.

He said: "People have a tendency, as you well know, to get all bent out of shape over stuff. "

"Life is too short. I thought it was flattering. And please continue to use the skyline - it doesn't bother me."
