Still more sign language


In New York, on Clinton Street, a stone’s throw from the Williamsburg Bridge, I saw this advertisement. According to the way the sign is phrased, doesn’t it appear that they will sell you one shoe and then, as a big favor, let you have the other half of the pair at a fifty per cent discount?


Then I saw this other sign -- the one on the right. I grant you that it probably is a testament to my perverse imagination, but when I read it, I pictured someone with her pants halfway on and halfway off.
