(Enlarge for better view)
This banner, on an apartment building near me, always has me raising my eyebrows, whenever I walk past it..
One day I'm going to get around to calling the listed phone number and asking them just what it means...
I'm sure it's not meant to be taken literally, as how could the US get 'OUT' of the US ?? :-)
Very strange ..
*Update ... Sometimes I can be a little slow on the uptake. :-) Yes, after reading some of the comments, I think that the check in the corner, probably means that the banner should read as 'Check Us Out'.
It's just that the 'US OUT' is what grabs your eye and you totally miss the check mark. :-)
Interestingly, a Kiwi blogger reminded me that in New Zealand, the check mark is known as a 'tick' ..
I think that is where my confusion is coming from, as I am originally from NZ. My Kiwi brain is simply not translating the mark as 'Check' but as 'Tick'...
While it makes sense to Americans, it does not to me.... and we both speak the English language, but obviously, not quite the same :-)
Now, go to MY WORLD TUESDAY where people from all over our globe , show off their little corner of the world !
