Another downtown sighting

Last Monday I shared about a magical, mysterious candy bar I encountered on my way to work (which is still on the ledge, by the way; I may have to give a weekly update about it…); this Monday I came across another equally curious ‘discovery’:

The genius nature of this agile little marketing ‘trick’ made me smile broadly.  Humor can be a positive motivator, and curiosity can be a powerful one.  Putting the two together more than doubles their potential.  I adore people (and groups, companies, institutions, etc.) who can be cheeky and clever, and can pull it off in a good-natured way.

    Oh, yes — that is well done, and well spotted.


  4. I think in Texas, that candy bar would have melted through its wrapper by now! As for the sign…this cracks me up…I kept reading it even after I KNEW what it said just because it said NOT to!

      Sharon, now who knows, the candy bar could be complete gush inside the wrapper; but the wrapper is still on the ledge (I checked again today), and *something* inside it is keeping it weighted down. 🙂

      As for the sign – I know! It’s cleverly awesome. 😉
