We've got ClEARANCE, Clarence
Another submission from contributor, Jeremy D., in Springfield, Oregon, this Fred Meyer" marquee is proof that the lowercase L phenomenon can manifest itself in formats other than handwriting. While it is unclear whether the sign master had run out of uppercase L's, we can exclude the possibility that this violation was a result of letter ClEARANCE, as there is plenty of space on both sides of the text. Surprisingly, I couldn't find any information about this on the Fred Meyer FAQs web page, but if you would like to take a role in saving humanity, put down your global warming petitions and leave a comment for Fred Meyer, letting him know how poorly this insane signage reflects on his business.
