I actually had to click on the link to figure out what "LIFE SIZE STATUS" was supposed to mean.

I know I'm a grammar wank, but "Mazda's" drives me nuts.

Yeah, I left all the (sic)s intact. When they can't even spell the name of the product you once had a business selling... reminds me of the kid with the "Lemanade" stand.

May all your "statuses" be life size.

There was a place on Arden, just before Del Paso that has a sign which said "pre-quality cars". Always good for a chuckle.

Along these lines, the discount movie store on Howe near Arden had a large banner several years back after they had opened: "Barely Open!"

As long as it's not "barely legal", they're fine. :)
