Does Anyone Proofread Their Signs Anymore?

I've never experienced a "Monglian" BBQ. Someone obviously noticed and added the "O". But really. Why not do it right instead of this half-attempt? Ah, well.

Proofreading seems to be a lost art. No one is doing it anymore. Even in the sign making business. You see signs everywhere in which someone could have made a better impression if they had just proofread what they had put on the sign. It's bad enough when the name of the store is spelled incorrectly, but how about if the phone number or street address of the establishment is wrong?

My favorite was the sign in town a few years back: "fresh" fish.
