Philadelphia Ghost Signage Project

What is a ghost sign?
Also faded ad or brick ad. A faded, painted sign, at least 50 years old, on an exterior building wall heralding an obsolete product, an outdated trademark or a clue to the history of the building's occupancy. These signs often reappear after a rainstorm or following the demolition of a neighboring building.

First, you can even get ordained as a Dudeist priest.

"That said, the secretary believes that it is inappropriate, even if though permissible under the rules and regulations, to cremate our fallen, our heroes in a facility that also cremates pets."
