My parents live in an iffy neighborhood

There I was, taking my morning walk in my parents’ neighborhood in conservative Waukesha, WI, when I came upon this sign in someone’s front yard.

Friends really shouldn’t let friends employ bad typography…

    Hah! That is hilarious. I love funny signs. Does the poor store owner have any idea? But seriously, who puts the word Elephant in the context of beauty maintenance. “Flo” (or Ho) needs to get a new sign stat!! ;)

    Wow, I hadn’t even noticed that “elegant” is pretty poorly rendered as well. I was totally focused on “Ho’s”. And this is actually a home – zoning here allows people to run small businesses such as this in their homes. So this is posted on a *totally* residential street – all homes & condos.

    You’d think a family member would be kind enough to point out the problem, wouldn’t you?
