Please RECYClE

Supposedly I live in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Brooklyn, but some of my fellow Park Slope neighbors don't seem to be living up to our reputation. Take this 6th Ave. sighting of the Recycle bin. Sure, it's just trash, but even the hot mommas in this neighborhood put on a little makeup and dress to impress when they go to the grocery store. I expect no less from our PlASTIC and GlASS bins, especially if the author is going to take the time to write the i's so capital they resemble uppercase T's.

Walk-ins may be welcome here, but this off-COlOR sign may result in a few walk-outs. Found by Grant H. in Austin, Texas, this is a perfect example of the lowercase L enigma -- the L in COlOR is the only lowercase L on the board, while all the other letters, including all the other L's, are uppercase.  I'd call the number on the sign to ask, but those 1's might be lowercase 7's.

Our readers are training their offspring to carry on the lowercase L mission! This one was spotted last spring outside Northeastern University in Boston by Jackie, daughter of contributor and fellow nitpicking blogger Bob H. of Why a Tittle.  As with many signs, the author passed with ONLY one uppercase L, but didn't make the grade in COllEGE.
