Back in the 70's in the days when mom and pop businesses were still plentiful, Doug and I saw one of the best advertising gimmicks in Westcliffe, Colorado. "Toad's Motel---Kids with Warts Stay Free!" We didn't have either kids or warts and we were camping, but I've tried to take a few pictures of signs or advertising ever since.
These photos are from various trips to France. I have no idea what "Baby Jesus Pur Porc" is, but I'm a true believer! Somehow I would think 'Sloggi' is not the image I really want to convey in slim-fit underwear, but I can't knock it til I've tried it. Doug and I have laughed over this menu board in Capestrang on our canal boat trip, so much so that we stopped again on the way back to see if had been changed. While we lunched at the restaurant twice, neither of us was brave enough to order the "salad in a warm goat". Ymmmm! Sure makes me appreciate good translating. The universal restroom sign in Beziers, however, needs no translation.
