Twist On Standard Mail Pouch Sign

While driving through downown Concord, Michigan it was impossible not to notice what looked like a repainted standard Mail Pouch Tobacco sign, except that the words "Treat yourself to the Best" read "Treat Yourself to Cancer." First spotted this last April (4-4-04 to be exact), it was still there as of last month. An odd thing to see right on the middle of town!
