This always seemed like it should be the tag line for a super-hero movie.

On the way to my niece's house over XMAS, I passed one of those small mechanic's shops with an interesting sign next to the street that said:

Brake problems?
Stop here!


Ummmm....

I always wanted to stop and take a picture of a sign on the way to my in-laws, off Rte. 94 in PA - "Hershey's Fur Center" - and post it here with the caption "not as popular as their caramel centers." Unfortunately, the business appears to have changed names to something rather generic, and the handpainted sign is gone.

A bar near my place has apparently been having some issues with crime, judging by the giant sign in their parking lot that says "This lot monitored nightly by CAR THIEVES."

There was a place near us that had a big sign on two lines saying UNISEX / HAIR SALON. But if you were further up the street, another sign blocked part of it and it looked like it said SEX SALON.

I was at the grocery store this morning and was looking at some Indian frozen meals. Right next to the tag and right under a full shelf of one of the dinners was a sign- Temporarily Out of Stock.

Glasses

There was (still is) a Jack In the Box near the airport hotel where an annual SF convention is held over Easter weekend. This JitB had a silhouette painting, as many did at the time, of Jack holding a microphone. However, due to the contours of this particular building, if you approached from the right (or possibly, wrong) angle, Jack's microphone looked like something else--something pornographic. Yet despite that, the painting remained in place for at least two years.
