PlEASE take all lowercases
Another special one-time only lowercase L photo op here, found in front of the Key Foods market on 7th Ave in Brooklyn around midnight.

But the word PlEASE on its own is just fine. John did pen his lowercase L taller than the other uppercase letters in the word, so at least he tried conforming to societal norms. But in the end, Mr. DiRico's psychosis shone through.

I am still searching for the perfect example. It is a quest I have embraced with all of my being. I am taking a 1-year sabbatical from work to do this.
Thank you for the help, SG, if you think a year will be enough ;)
