    Yep! Actually, there are five Wednesdays in a month once per quarter, so you get a bonus Bad Signage Humor post four times a year. The last one was on June 30, 2010.

    Well, yes, multifarious can mean assorted or varied, but it reminds me too much of nefarious.

    And, yes, I suppose one could consider advertisements propaganda. Somehow I can almost always spot verbage that has been written by a non-native English speaker. In this case the Chinese writing is the biggest clue.

    I thought of nefarious too, Pat! As for the propaganda, it’s hard to see the small printing, but that’s what the “translation” says. Too funny!
