Have you seem my Rs?

As seen in Bradford yesterday for an Arts event.

This got me to thinking about a Saturday job I had in my mid teens working at a Garage in Newcastle, cleaning out trade-in vans. My dad worked there and it was a Ford main dealer. There was a new product launch of a range of light trucks, known as the "A series". To support this, seven huge boxes arrived, which when unpacked, were found to contain huge white polypropylene letters spelling "A series". Once the sales Manager had gone home, however, they were re-arranged in the showroom window to spell "Arses".

After five minutes or so and getting lots of car horn toots, we put them back. I wonder if anyone ever took a photo?
