If they're that bad, why advertise them?

I was walking past one of the offices here at work earlier today when I saw a sticker on the window that I would have sworn said:

CRAPPY
SKATEBOARDS

After I blinked a couple of times, I was able to accurately read the somewhat confusing typeface and discovered that it actually said:

GRAVITY
SKATEBOARDS

LOL I had a moment like that last week.

Driving to work, I saw the side of a van for a moment: DOMESTIC UNICORN RENTALS

Huh?

Got a second look a moment later: DOMESTIC UNIFORM RENTALS

XD

I do this a lot, apparently. Things like Alien Ice Company (Allen Ice Company), Balboa Art Conversation Society (Balboa Art Conservation Society), EXPORT DRUNK DRIVERS (REPORT DRUNK DRIVERS), LAME FUELS (LAMB FUELS), Uptight bassist available (Upright bassist available), Wanted: Talented Murderer (Wanted: Talented Muralist), and one of my favorites ... Grass Pants, OR (Grant's Pass, OR).

LOL yeah, I do that all the time too. Though for me, my initial comprehension is even worse when it's spoken words versus written ones. I can't even remember anything I've "heard" (vs reality) off the top of my head, but trust me, there have been some doozies.

Ah, yeah, those get me too. I think my favorite was "You run the tool on your nose and it monitors activity." ("Your nose" was actually "Windows".)
