Photo Oddities for June 1st

My pile of photo oddities has been growing, so here are a few.

The first thing that got my attention on the back of this truck was the tag line: "The Information Destruction Authority." Okay, that may be trying a bit too hard.

But then I noticed the AAA seal below and found that it was an endorsement from the National Association for Information Destruction. Now I know that an association has been created for every possible type of business.

This sign has been up for decades at Minneapolis's Seven Corners. But seeing it with 21st century eyes, I now see it as advertising a business called "iPad 'N' Palette."

Am I the only one who reads this logo as saying "NO JOY"? Which seems appropriate for a powdered, nondairy creamer.

Warning, child shocks ahead!

That's so disturbing, I don't know what to say.

I see NJ, followed by OY (no kidding).

I looked up Besam and can guess that the blue sign means “hold hands.” But there’s got to be a better way to suggest that (like a picture with a big hand holding a smaller one?).
