I wasn't sure whether this was a typo or not.

Re: Did I read that sign right?

I've mentioned this before, but ages ago on a empty shop there was the usual "Bill Posters will be Prosecuted" sign.
Someone had written on it "Bill Posters is innocent".

Re: Did I read that sign right?

Yes brilliant.
I once saw in the back of a really old Skoda a sign that said "fart propelled"
Obviously the owner had a sense of humour
