Hat tip to Z, who found this little tidbit parked in front of a college in Minnesota:

I guess Bestest Movers was already taken.

  1. I think it might be missing a few punctuation marks. The Best, er, “movers.”

  2. Oh, Elisabeth, you beat me to it!

    But I think it’s kind of cute.

    Maybe I’ll move to the Land O’Lakes and open a business called “The Besterest Movers Of All”

  3. A Google search reveals a moving company called Bester Brothers in the Minnesota area. This is clearly just a sign with a play on their name. Sheesh….

  4. Not exactly. I believe it’s actually one of their moving vans . . .

  5. Right, MRP, that’s what I was trying to say. It’s their sign, on their van, making a play on their name.

  6. Ohhhh . . . I get it now (thanks for sticking with me there, Gadfly) but I’d still have to say that the execution of this marketing idea isn’t the, um, bestest.

  7. Say, MRP, it’s funny how words in text can lose something. Reading back, I see you may have been humorously taking the literal meaning of my use of “sign” to point out that it wasn’t a sign, it was a van. Ha! Now I get it! So what do you call the writing on a vehicle? I hate the word “signage.” In this case, is it a “rolling blunder”?
