Saw this sign at a market on the weekend.  Think they were trying to say. Make an offer on prices!  :crazy1:

The sign did its job......... Got you to stop and interested in what it was trying to say.

I would say it's a very good marketing ploy by the shop.....

" but they can spell';  so can the duckhids who continually use 'so'. Drives me mad.  :crazy1:

It started with people, even academics, starting every spoken phrase with the adverb 'so'. Roley Sussex of UQ put it down to a delay in the thought process, similar to 'um'.

Now its being written. :crazy2:

Would have been awesome if they were that smart.. But I would bet odds of 99:1 it was not intentional.  :phone1:
