Hold on, what?

I just had to post a picture of this new gym in Fukui - I almost did a double-take when I saw the sign. Why does no-one bother to check these things before they paint them onto 20 feet high billboards? Craziness.
 
I saw another one yesterday - I drove by a pachinko parlour in Sabae called Phoenix. The only trouble was the gigantic neon sign on the side of the building didn't say "Phoenix", it said "Pheonix". You'd think there was a dictionary shortage in Japan or something.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

When I was in Sapporo for the snow festival, there were a number of phoenix ice sculptures. Not a SINGLE ONE spelled 'phoenix' correctly.

*Sigh.*
