Dirty or not? You be the judge...

There are numerous things wrong with this sign (although if I go into all of them here, I'm going to have an aneurysm, sooooo...I just won't), most notably the Random Capitalization of Words, but what really gets me is the phrase "Great Gifts for the Hard to Buy For!!" part. Not only do the two (two!) exclamation points irk me, but the spacing of this phrase bothers me. Am I the only one who thinks it looks dirty? Every time I see "Great gifts for the hard", I start to giggle. (Maybe I just have a dirty mind.) Regardless, that awful Random Capitalization thing is in full effect in this sentence, PLUS the sentence ends in a preposition. And it sounds dirty, I tell you. Dirty.

And what's up with the "Sixth (6)" thing? I mean, it's kind of retarded to write the 6 next to "Sixth" in the first place, but if you're going to do that, then you should probably write (6th) and not just plain ol' (6).

I seriously cannot look at this damn sign anymore. If I do, my pretty little head will explode. Congratulations, STEVE, the picture you sent me has caused me to go into a full-blown tizzy.
