Madison About You

It's no secret that folks at the P&PC home office love the language let loose by signs. We've covered the poetry of anti-Palin rallies in Alaska, driven through the jingles on Burma-Shave billboards, and counted down the top ten roadside rhymes we encountered on a road trip out West back in 2009. So here's a small gallery of the puns, witticisms, spoonerisms, and various other linguistic twists and turns on display in Madison, Wisconsin, over the past week and a half. Before you scroll down, though, check out these other links:
