A local legend is back. After suffering storm damage during the 2022 hurricane season, the Southside Cleaners sign has undergone repairs. The sign — which simply read “Ouchie!” for the past several months — is known for its punny messages.

We asked our Instagram followers what they would put on the sign for its comeback. Here are a few of our favorites:

“Ian strong ain’t neon strong!” —@cepjr44

“I cracked my self up, yes literally.” —@tatthompson9

“New sign, who dis? #ian” —@jenn.kiel.realtor

“What do you call an Irish spider? Paddy long legs” —@marinagracee

“I miss you” —@sbarthle

“Restaurant on the moon review: Food was great, but no atmosphere” —@melissa_riesenberg.realtor

“Here’s your sign” —@toribrady
