A Flowood business has gotten quite a few laughs from motorists traveling down Lakeland Drive.
Flowood Flooring and Design, obviously poking fun about how long a pile of dirt from some sort of construction has been in front of their building, posted a banner in front of their business and it's been turning heads.
The banner, that has a large arrow pointing to the dirt pile, says "Flowood Flooring and Design. We're still behind this big pile of dirt."
Were they trying to get a point across? Or just trying to have a little fun? Either way they've gotten many a chuckle....but not from the City of Flowood.
On Wednesday, the business posted to its Facebook page, "We've heard from many of you and appreciate the positive feedback we've received on our banner. Unfortunately, the City of Flowood doesn't have the same sense of humor as us, and we have removed it."
When asked by a customer on their page why they had to remove it, they said, "To be fair to the city, we didn't get a permit before placing the signage. City ordinance states that there must be a permit to put up a banner like that. We are going to seek a variance from them in the hopes that we can display it once again though!"
Flowood Flooring and Design is offering a 10 percent discount to anyone who mentions the banner.
