    In my early days ripping the leg off the 'R' was my signature move when removing premask.

    Mine was always lower case y's and half of capital H's. This is almost as bad as the temporary FEMA photo op setup they put up every hurricane season.

    My goodness.. maybe they ordered the decals from a third party vendor and the guy who installed them on site did not know what he was doing and didn’t have any backup decals.. unless those are the backups.

    Aside from the lovely young woman in the barely there dress that back-drop is all kinds of jacked up.
    Those mismatched patches of turf on the bottom look like something you'd see in a flea market display.

    Well, this was a fun little exercise, but it seems as if they've been using that same backdrop for a number of years and the same bubbles are in it year after year. I guess the sign doesn't get much sun, huh ??

    Wayne, I'm still trying to figure out what made you discover that ?? You must be numb................ :confused:

    WOW. I stress over stuff like this. Daily. I know. ish happens. But I CANNOT fathom how someone let this slide.
    I bet the event planner said, "Why is it so expensive? It's just a sticker. Please revise your work order to remove install... We will do the install ourselves..." :D

    Gino, not sure why this headline caught my eye:

    "Sports Illustrated Model Brooks Nader Wears See-Through Dress To Awards Show"

    Could be it is 5am here, I am printing out monument wraps that have to go up later today, I have the FISA report hearings on in the background & today is my 60th birthday.
    One day I will grow up, but today is not that day....
