Grammar Abuse in signage: part 15

img src="" border="0" title="We've moved to" alt="We've moved to" />

You've probably seen this as everyone in the world reads The “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks. If you don't, you should.

I love to hate everything about this sign: the terrible typefaces; the indented first line; the incorrect tense; the misspelt three letter word; the weird hanging quotation mark; and finally the ambiguity. Am I to built my onw taco, or my onw taco bar?


It's up there with the worst sign ever.

Come on, Gez. It easily beats your so-called "Worst sine Ever.

I can smell a competition. With prizes perhaps?

Erm, I've just looked at it again and I'm not sure it's a sign. Is it a menu? I can't tell the true size without a reference. It's like looking at a Picasso.

Going by the perspective of the black backing to the white paper, it almost looks like an A1 flip-chart. That's a chart of A1-sized paper, by the way, rather than a flipchart dedicated to the boyband A1. I bet even the members of A1 know when to use the past tense of the verb 'to build'.

OH. BTW, the sign is just larger than an 8.5 x 11 and is mounted on grey/black see-through plastic. It's the specials board at my work. Not telling you where.
