Grammar Abuse in Signage: Part 17

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

A couple of lovely signage atrocities to brighten up your Sunday drudge.

I'm a huge fan of this mess – sent to us by Martin Greenberger of Westchester, California. Aside from the moronic spelling, I really like the ignorant (but wonderfully earnest) attempts at Emphasis.

This, sent in by Simon Pittock, is a splendid example of what can happen when inbred fayre-goers get access to the magic of Microsoft Publisher. Typographically, it's a real stinker. The spacing, size and placement of the characters seems to have been deliberately randomised; it's as if the designer, in a fit of politically-inspired pique, has decided to reject uniformity and smash the system. Excellent.

That may be gourmet coffee, but it's certainly not gourmet grammar.
