Back in May of 2010, I wrote the first of a few blog entries on the amusing signs of Detroit I see on my bicycle rides. Many of the advertising beauties that I’ve seen over the years are hand-painted, some with drippy letters, making them difficult to read. Others are professionally painted on the sides of building and are full of misspelled words. Several others, such as those nailed to trees or utility phones, spell out things that are impossible to decipher. Others are eye-catching in their bold use of color and feature crude drawings of food items, car parts, etc.
One in particular that I featured in that early entry was quite humorous in its spelling.
After a couple of years riding past this beauty, I noticed a few days ago that the spelling had been corrected. In some ways, I was sorry to see the change.
