Say what?

I'm on the road again, but I've crafted a few posts in advance to (hopefully) keep you entertained the next few days.


Today's topic is signage, again*.

Let's start with The Clever. Those Tic-Tac people are good attention grabbers: I've seen huge crowds gathered around this gigantic-domino-effect-Tic-Tac-promotion-thingie at the mall. The challenge, of course, is to guess how long it will take for them to fall.

"Ooh baby baby, Get up on this!"


(I actually just made myself LOL.)

Moving on to The Not-So-Clever: from the same marketing Dream Team that brought us the awkwardly-named Fartaria Café, I give you...


...the Farto Farmacy, for all your toot-stifling needs.


So, what exactly does that entail? Looking for something, or something?


Big Ben? Really?


They were already starting the craic when they wrote up the menus for the Twenty-Thirth Annual St. Paddy's Day party.


This sign reminded me of those warnings in the Iberê Camargo Museum. While this bus terminal cafeteria did serve coffee, there were no burgers, nor silverware, and certainly no martinis. Trust me, I tried!

Maybe I'd have better luck asking here--because this, as you can clearly see, is a real, American Bar.




I can just hear Elvis now: "VIVAAAA LAS JEGAS!"

With a chuckle and a smiling sigh, I'm off to find more goodies out there.
