The Law Offices of Fait, Wise and DiLima - which I read as Fate, Wise and Dilemma and think "what a great name for a legal group"   :D

Many years ago there was a law firm in Queens, NY.  The names were perfectly fine Irish names but they didn't go well together.

The names were Lawless and Lynch.

My father used to always laugh about a man who was in the paper on Peeping Tom charges. His name was Seymour Dunne.

There is a Chick-fil-A billboard near a major shopping area that says "Eat mor chicken by the dawn's earlee light". That makes me smile every time.

There's a home for sale near us and the realator sign out front shows it being listed by McJunkin & Associates. I giggle each time because in my mind I just don't think I'd want the term "junk" associated with trying to seel my home. I also associatet the term "McMansions" with it to add to the silliness in my mind.

There is a tire place near me and I always like to read their funny signs.  My all-time favorite was:

A garage near me has good signs sometimes - the last one I saw said "Winter is around the corner. Don't peek!"

This one is actually rather elegant. 

This morning, a van was parked across the street.

There is a trucking company headquartered a few miles south of me. They recently had a semi-trailer parked in their lot that read "Platonic Transport -- We don't fool around."

"Inconvenius" sounds like a minor deity in a Terry Pratchett story. The god of gas pumps that don't take debit cards, perhaps?

Wow.  This one would drive me batty.  It's like a puzzle to seek and find all of the many mistakes.  How many are there?
