...a sign on the sidewalk advertising:

Used Babies — $500 and up

After the double-take, I saw that the sign was in front of a piano store.

I would have taken a picture, but I was in traffic. Ah, well.

I think they meant "baby grand pianos" which are smaller than full-size grand pianos, but there wasn't room to fit all that on the sign.

Men do it with everything they treasure. Children, Cars, trucks, boats, jet-skis, cameras, computers, gadgets, tools, even Women.
