That's funny, Maria. Reminds me of when our vice principal, at the end of his announcement over the intercom, requested any classroom finding the message garbled to please buzz the office.

12. Now is your chance to have your ears pierced and get an extra pair to take home.

Wonder if they are related to the folks who put this sign in the window:

"Ears pierced while you wait."

(Probably the same store, if you think about it; there HAD to be someone who dropped them off and forgot.....)

Patricia, too funny. The advertisements seek economy of words and obviously add a different spin on things.

My favorite: 4. Dog for sale: eats anything and is fond of children. I know my sick sense of humor.
