METAL GlIDER

Oh, Rimpy, where would the lowercase L blog be without you? This FoodMaxx sign for a METAL GlIDER (TWO SEATER) is likely a "crunch case".  That is, the author tried to fit the entire word within the remaining insufficient space by chopping off the foot of the uppercase L — usually to no avail, as in this instance, with the R way off in the blue border.  The ridiculous lowercase L is even more emphasized by the adjacent uppercase i.  Everyday Low Price may be Guaranteed, but I'd also like assurance of Everyday Lowercase L Guaranteed before I start patronizing this establishment.
