Whilst journeying into town (gotta love the word "whilst") I saw a great number of signs. I looked at one, saw the letters, an thought about them, and had an idea.
Every business should have a hidden messge in their name. And then, they should strategically position objects, so that from a busy intersection/parking
lot/place, some of the letters are blocked, and the hidden message is revealed.
For instance (a rough example):
Bugoyta Herrie's Sausages
Bu##y## He#r#e Sausages
The odd side effect is that many businesses would end up with exotic/Russian sounding names.
Kudos to the person who can come up with the best hidden message name

||I was on a bus and saw a poster warning about 'rug abuse' (the 'd' being hidden by a pole). It got me wondering about whether they are typically smoked or snorted. And musing that there's no such thing as a soft rug...
||[imaginality] Rug abuse is what rug beaters do.
||Also reminds me of the "Columbo" episode where one had to be standing in the exact center of a field next to a cannon, in order to see a cider jug hanging out a dorm window.
||S****thorpe isn't suggestive or sublimanal, just unfortunate in this age of overzealous censorship software.
