Dying Centre ... Dying/Dyeing? Have to admit that this one confuses me every time!

This could, in all probability, be a hoax. But had Google decided to advertise on the streets, I wonder if it could have done better .

If what I've read is right, these are the feats of a comedian on the streets of California.

Thanks for the pointer.

One that could gel well in the forum is a take on the movie CARS.

Well, I for one had really thought that it was "pups" for quite some time in my childhood. I saw puffs for the first time when I was in U.K.G and when I heard the name "puffs", I thought it was "pups". After a year or so, whenever I wanted to have puffs, I would ask my Dad to get me "naayi mari" (pup in Kannada)

Aah those days! Missing those wonderful memories. This bakery made my day!

In several parts of Kerala, especially the north parts, it was actually referred to as Pups. A puff was a cigarette. . So when I moved there and kept saying Puff, my classmates thought I wanted a smoke. They then 'taught' me- it is PUPS. For the next 2 years I had tons of pups.

Saw this on a BMTC today, you can also notice there is a space between S and G in signal, looks like the correction went wrong.
On another day the overhead LED display had these things scrolling in a BMTC

Not sure if this belongs here, but proof reading at its lows:

Have not marked the obvious mistake since it should be eye catching for enthusiasts.
