This sign pairing has been there for years, and we finally picked up enough round tuits to snap a photo of it.
Usually we try to catch funny signs like this as soon as possible. You can bet M’hael’s wasn’t up for very long. But sometimes, as in this case, it’s not something broken, it’s just something odd, and it sticks around for a while.
Even so, we’ve missed a few.
The one that started Katie off on this was a demolished restaurant with only a port-a-potty left standing…and a sign saying “Ask about our banquet facilities.”
I drove past “Victory Foam” every morning for a year and never stopped for it.
Someone scrawled “Life is full of bumps” in loopy text inside the Sepulveda Tunnel under LAX, and I spent months trying to decide if there was a good way to stop safely, or walk in on foot.
On a similar note, there was a car billboard on the freeway advertising “The four-crotch crotch rocket.” And a restaurant called “Seaman’s Inn” that Katie saw on a family vacation and couldn’t even comment on it.
It took a decade to catch another “ELF STORAGE” after missing the first one.
Just last month I missed the local Round Table’s Back to the Future reference by a day. (It was a week before the actual date, and I figured they’d keep it up that long. I came back the next day and it had been replaced by a new quote.)
