As a compulsive photographer of odd signs, I have to say that "Brid" (origin unknown) has it all. It's the implied story I love:
Bob: Aw, jeez, you're kidding. "Brid?" Who made these things? Fine. I'll just put 'em out for $1.19.
Customer 1: Hey, did you see this? This bucket says "brid!" That's pretty funny! I bet they meant "bird," right?
Bob: Yes, sir, I expect they did.
Customer 2: Excuse me, but there's a spelling error on this product.
Bob: Yes, ma'am, we know. That's why it's on sale.
Customer 2: Only it's spelled "bird," not "brid."
Bob: Thank you, ma'am.
Customer 3: Sir? Sir? Do you sell any brid food to go in this brid bucket?
Bob: Very funny, sir.
Customer 3,487: BRID! What kinda idiots are you people anyway? Can't you spell?
Bob: We don't make the products, sir. We just sell them.

Unlike traditional lighters, the SaberLight features an electronic plasma beam that’s both rechargeable and butane-free. This sleek lighter is even approved by TSA, so you’ll never be stuck buying lighters you’ll just have to throw away partially used. For some people, like me, this is a pretty big game-changer. The SaberLight’s beam is actually both hotter and cleaner […]
