This just in from Raanana

I'm pleased to announce that I have a Raanana correspondent - Mirj has provided us with yet another funny sign. This one is from Achuza Street - seemingly an ad for a soon-to-be shop:

Now, look at the size of this thing. It covers the entire storefront, taller than either of its neighboring shop windows. How much did this cost? Obviously this ad was a high priority to someone - but not quite high enough to warrant consulting a dictionary? Or consulting any native English speaker, not too hard to come by in Raanana... sheesh.

Thank you Mirj! If anyone else out there is interested in reporting something they've seen, I'll happily consider it. I certainly don't need a monopoly on finding funny signs - on the contrary, I'm pretty limited geographically. My only request - please only send things you've seen yourself, or that have been seen by someone you actually know. A lot of these photos that get passed around in bulk emails are photoshopped, and not really in the spirit of this blog, funny though they may seem.

Just so you know, the latest edition of "Haveil Havalim" is up, and can be found here. Haveil Havalim is a weekly sum-up of Jewish and Israeli blog posts, so if you're looking for something good to read, check it out.

Enjoy the rest of your chametz!
