If 2013 is not a booming year of business in Florida, blame these signs.

First, Rick Scott and his staff brand the state's 'Perfect Climate For Business' campaign with a sexist logo, replacing the 'i' in Florida' with a necktie.

Now city municipalities are getting in on the bad sign mojo.

The City of Pembroke Pines installed a welcome sign with the slogan 'Pembroke Pines: The City For Your Family And Busines [sic]' on a busy stretch of Pines Boulevard in front of Whole Foods.

It's apparently not the city for proofreaders as the last 's' was left off 'business.'

Monday morning commuters tipped off Local 10 to the misspelling and city crews were out at 11 a.m. removing the bad signage from the busy boulevard.

This is certainly not the only oops in South Florida signs.

In October 2011, Broward road crews misspelled 'school' as 'scohol' on a Lauderhill street to mark a school zone.
