A Perfect lowercase L Storm

"Are you still doing this?"

That was the Subject of Berger's e-mail, no message, just the attached photo.  This lowercase L event is so perfect, even if I wasn't "doing this" anymore, I'd be compelled to bring the blog out of retirement just so I could post the photo.  Spotted in a jeweler's window around 88th Street and Park Avenue in Manhattan, Berger noted that he was surprised by the flood of improperly used lowercase L's considering the ritzy address.  "FACIAl ONlY, JEWElRY MAKING, HAIR EXTENSIONS, WAlK-INS WElCOME".

And if you look closely, the uppercase i's on the sign behind the glass are unnecessarily dotted.

This is a screenshot of the video for Coldplay's latest single, "Paradise".
When she was just a girl
She expected the WORlD
But got worried when she saw the WORlD spelled
with a lowercase L.
Those are the actual lyrics.

Here's the video below.  If you don't like Coldplay, you can just sing "Pumped Up Kicks" by Foster The People in its place, it lines up pretty nicely.

Michael sets up the video:
This classic lowercase l is featured in episode 4 of Yacht Rock, the hilarious series of clips about late '70s/early '80s soft rock. Toto keyboardist Steve Porcaro is explaining to the rest of the band how they're going to get Michael McDonald to sing on their song "Rosanna." They didn't succeed. Possibly because of this lowercase l.
ASK NICElY, and you can watch the video and see for yourself:

Occupy lA

Marcus Freed may have only recently moved from across the pond to LA, but he was quick to adopt our revolutionary spirit and take to the streets to Occupy LA.  It wasn't long before Marcus was exposed to another national pastime: the improper use of lowercase L's in words that are otherwise all uppercase letters.  This particular picket sign informs us that "Rothchilds ARE the Federal Reserve (which is NOT even federal, it's a GlOBAL BANK meant to keep us in debt).  Compare this GlOBAL to this previous submission from a Jewish innovation conference in Israel:

Notice the same lowercase L in the middle of the word, and the same uppercase L at the end?  Coincidence? Or, as Marcus suspects, CONSPIRACY of the Elders of ZION????

CASUAlTiES of ll-ll-ll

Schlake found this disturbing letter sent to the Socorro City police department in an appropriately titled article in the El Defensor Chieftain, "Disturbing letter sent to police department". The author warns "the CORRUPt DEVilS" that, on Friday, November 11, 2011, he will direct his wrath upon the people of Socorro, and that "PlENTY OF PARASiTES Will JOin" him.  Of course, the CASUAltiES are scheduled for 11-11-11, or as we call it here in lowercase L, ll-ll-ll.  Perhaps just as disturbing as the threat itself is the author's dysgraphic writing style, mixing upper and lowercase letters, though props for at least making the lowercase L's slightly taller than the other uppercase letters, and using lowercase i's to help distinguish the lowercase L's.  I hope the authorities find the person who would commit such atrocities and put him behind bars.  Also to prevent him from hurting anyone.

BIllIONS Wasted

Triumph the Insult Dog discovered this tragedy at the Occupy Wall Street movement in Zuccotti Park.  I'm not talking about the "BIllIons WAStED-ON WARS, MEDICAD FRAUD, ECT".  I'm talking about this poorly constructed sign, especially the cascading lowercase L in BIllIons.
