Typography that makes you chuckle

Last night while “shopping” at Brian Cooper Food Mart I saw the above sign and found it hilarious. For those not in the know, Brian Cooper is a shady convenience store in Pittsburgh’s Friendship neighborhood that inexplicably has a bar in it specializing in 40 ouncers and six packs. Everyone enjoy their Friday!

simple and direct, like good typography should be

I agree, it’s really good. The irony being that I’m sure someone from the store printed this out of Word with no thought at all to typography other than “make a big sign.” But the typography is good and ultimately the (LAW) part of it is genius.

I always enjoyed that the sign for Brian & Cooper’s is actually set in Cooper Black. Coincidence???
