Companies pay a lot of attention to their billboards and signs. However, when installing a neon sign you have to be extra carefull. Lights WILL go out, and once it does you'll end up with "hell" instead of "Shell", and "Hoe Carnival" instead of "Shoe Carnival".

Bored Panda has collected the best of the worst neon sign fails. So if you are a business owner who has or is planning to have a neon sign - take a really close look and try to see what can go wrong. Not all publicity is good publicity. Also, if you have an image of a broken neon sign that got a funny new meaning, submit it below!

They are all funny, but this one made me LOL. (Possibly because I often think that word when I'm in a supermarket...)

I imagine a parade much like Pride, except only with women in spandex dresses, neon lipstick, and clear, polyurethane platform heels.
