Shame on Subaru of Witchita

It reads: “Shame on Subaru of Witchita.”

 

Smeone cooked up a clever response, placing it alongside the original sign, with the same font, coloring, and size:

For having unbeatable prices

 

Theirs reads: “For Having Unbeatable Prices.”

 

The result?

Minimal Pen With a Twist

If it gets us closer to brownies it’s a good thing!
