I saw a post-it note with a religious message stuck to a bus-stop sign downtown.   For reasons explained below, it amused me.  So I did just a bit of research.  My research turned up a Flickr page containing a photo of what I saw (minus one small detail):

[<—- That photo — Not the one I saw, but similar.]

A comment to that Flickr photo says that these post-it notes are all over downtown.  And even though they look hand-written, they are pre-printed.

What amused me about the post-it note I saw on the bus-stop sign was the use of a comma.  It read:

“To God, You Will Answer.”

At first I thought it was an interesting typo.  But after learning that there are pre-printed (non-comma’d) versions all over downtown, it dawned on me that the comma was added later (I love subtle pranksters).    The comma’s shift of meaning  is way better than “eats, shoots and leaves”.   I wish I had taken a photo.
