Okay ... wtf is this? Is this a backwards uppercase L? If I had to guess, I'd say it looks like our eager housecleaner, Vanesa, started with a lowercase L, and then decided to make it an uppercase L after the fact. And maybe there wasn't enough room to do the horizontal squeeze, so the lower rung had to be drawn backwards. I suppose we could call her and ask what the L she was thinking.

license to ill

Submitted by Lilit, this awkward "Dogs and cats need a licence" sign doesn't exactly meet the criteria for a genuine lowercase L offense here, but it is an interesting find nonetheless. Posted on The anti-social event of the season, a blog about kerning, punctuation, and other printed text problems, the author takes umbrage not with a lowercase L amidst uppercase letters, but with an unusually tall lowercase L. Other readers noticed that licence was spelled incorrectly.
