One Letter Off by Kushiel's Servant, SNORLAX, Jeremy Cezanne, Ben Yamiin

October 23rd, 2008 4:10 AM

INSTRUCTIONS: Find a sign, poster, advertisement or other publicly-displayed message that would be improved by (physically) changing a single letter. Make the necessary change.

this task was a lot of fun. once we started we couldn't stop. there's still plenty more to come, but we've spent enough time on this. done for now.



PAGE --> RAGE

ONE WAY --> ONE LAY


for some reason i had a one way sign lying around

we installed it next to a "massage" parlor. the man in the pictures would not leave us alone. ben wanted to tear his head off. within seconds of putting it up a few people nearby started taking pictures with their cell phones. The owner(?) came out (probably alarmed by a small burst of camera flashes) and gave us a mean look.

CAUTION ICE ON WALKWAY

the U was already gone. ben was handcuffed to the sign.

PLEASE MOVE BACK

these signs are found on sf public transit. a tribute to impossible exchange

24 HOUR TOW

such signs are common in SF where parking is often scarce.

BONUS SIGN

this isn't a valid entry for this task. we changed more than one letter on this sign. but we include it since it was inspired by this task

NO PARKING --> NO PORKING

This is beautiful.

My favorite is "24-hour town" (and, of course, the SF0 sign.)

Point infusion

At some point during the past week, the puppetmasters infused us each with 20 additional vote points. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, apparently. ;-) I can't find where it was that the 20 extra points were announced, but I remember seeing the announcement.

giggly at work...

i'd seen the "rage" somewhat frequently lately and thought it was just another random bit of SF "creative graffiti"--BUT NO! it was sf0, clearly.

also, i love "no porking."

Max points because your signage is just so clever!

I have been searching for my one-letter-off opportunity for awhile now. I'm not sure if the signs here suck or I'm just not bright enough to see their potential.

What would be really cool is to be able to change one letter of an arabic sign and have it be interesting, but then only Ben and I would get it. ;)
