I don't BElIEVE my i's

More from yesterday's gritty graffiti submitted by Allison Elliot, look carefully at this phrase: WE ARE AS INDESTRUCTIBLE AS WE BElEVE OURSELVES TO BE.  At first you might not catch the problem.  Then, when you catch it, you might decide the artist simply left out an uppercase L in BELIEVE.  But I have a different theory.  What if the artist started to write BEL with a lowercase L, and when he looked at his progress — BEl — he became confused and thought he had already written the uppercase i in BELIEVE, and finished with EVE?
