Was it purposely misspelled? Or it misspelled by mistake?

We used to have a whole thread of funny signs called Sign of the Times, but it seems to have gone... it was pretty old so would have been closed anyway, but it might have been good to link to!

(Although what with Photobucket changing its terms, half the images would have been broken, so it's time for a new one either way...)

(eta) Hang on, it's still here, it's just called "Signs of the Times" and the board search apparently doesn't stem plurals...

Signs of the Times

I was right though, most of the images have gone so it's a bit disappointing at the moment!

One from years back, at my office cafeteria: the soup of the day was chili con carnie.

At a grocery store ages ago I saw a hand-written sign proudly advertising "3 Muskeeters" candy bars. Ew.

I joked to one of the employees about how it was spelled wrong.

The next time I was there, the new sign advertised "3 Musketters".

... I mean... come on people! The spelling is right there on the box!

A few years ago, the Home Depot sign had a few lights blown out. The Home Depot became Ho Depot.

At one time, the lights on a Super Duper grocery store in my area read SU ER DUPE .

We called it the "Sewer Dupe" for months afterward.

There's a Home Goods near here that became Ho Goods after dark for a while.

What's wrong with that? It is one of the best opening dishes when you are serving dry rube barbecue.

There used to be a flea market across the road at the end of our street. When they started tearing the building down (back in August) a hand painted sign appeared declaring that "TrepAssing will be towed".

It is evident that the 'A" started out as an 'i'. It is still there.
