Signs of Despair - No.2

An extremely busy May has left me unable to create much in the way of new content. However, over the last couple of days, I have come across a couple of classic 'signs of despair'!

In this instalment, there is a clothes shop in Ealing, West London called "Bardo" (no website to link to I'm afraid).

In a classic example of odd grammar, this is the sign they have outside the shop:
Bardo - Signs of Despair
Bardo - Signs of Despair

As you can see, the phrase "French for Less.!" contains both a full stop and an exclamation mark. I am going to assume that it used to contain 2 exclamation marks and that a piece of the sign is now missing.

However, it must be noted that the sign is of the flat and painted kind rather than the 3D kind that tend to have bits missing. If only they had a website for me to confirm against.!
