However, I do not understand what the the car wash marquee originally said.
I know “Sal eats cars” is funny, funny enough to be on some blog, not the town’s paper! That’s not it, of course.
It’s the 3rd panel explaining how the phrase ended up on the marquee — “a ‘T’ blow[n] off a sign”
Did it blow off the car wash marquee? If so, where was it before? If not, did it blow off another sign onto the car wash’s, and the marquee used to say “Sal ea-s cars”?
