I could see it straight away. My favourite was a Wimpy in north London where the person applying the graphics had muddled up the lower case 'm' with the upper case 'W' and had also lined up all the letters so that the descender of the 'y' lined up with the baseline of all the other letters. And it was left like that until Wimpy went bust.
