Thousands baffled over sign with ‘mystery message’ scrawled above it – before the words are finally deciphered by eagle-eyed viewers
- A sign has confused thousands on social media after a photo emerged
- Lynsie shared the image on Facebook and had no idea what it meant
- The sign reads ‘comfort’ in capital letters but the cursive text above is illegible
Thousands were left scratching their heads after a woman spotted a ‘confusing’ sign with illegible text written above it.
Lynsie posted a snap of the sign on Facebook asking for advice and for help in deciphering the mystery message.
‘I stared at this for longer than I care to admit trying to figure it out,’ she wrote.
The sign clearly reads ‘comfort’ in bold capital letters, but the cursive text above it was a mis-print and reads ‘and joy’ but only when viewed upside down.
A woman who shared a photo of a sign has left thousands confused. The sign itself clearly reads ‘comfort’ in bold capital letters, but the cursive text above is illegible (pictured: the sign)
The post was flooded with comments from those who seemed just as confused as Lynsie was.
‘I see “holpup comfort”,’ one person wrote, another said: ‘Hot pup comfort. New band name-I called it!’
A third was convinced the sign read ‘hol your comfort’ and asked ‘what’s that mean?’
Others thought the sign as linked to puppies or read ‘holjous comfort’.
‘I find puppies comforting but I don’t need a sign about it,’ another woman said.
‘My brain is reading it as help us COMFORT,’ a man wrote.
Another said: ‘As if being dyslexic isn’t bad enough, they have come up with this mess.’
After a quick Google search, many realised the cursive writing had been printed upside down and is instead meant to read ‘comfort and joy’
But soon many realised the cursive writing had been printed upside down .
‘Joy and comfort. Exactly what that sign does NOT make me feel,’ one person said.
Someone else said to ‘just paint over’ the error and correct it.
The floral detailing had also been printed in the wrong spot and is meant to be on top of the word ‘comfort’ not below it.
