a lousy system

Honest Signage

One of my favourite signs in Corfu.

I think of it as being placed by one Mr Alou for his eponymous system.

The marvelous trick is that there's a trompe l'oeil aspect in that it appears to read "A lousy system".

Most of my non proof-reader pals to whom I point it out do in fact read it as 'lousy system' and marvel at the refreshing honesty of the man. Posted by Picasa
