That sign would so not stay long in place in the UK.
Not that many thieves around where I live. It will probably be some drunk that nicks it though, that's how it always happens. Drunk people think its funny to steal stuff. Any scientist have a rationale for this?

Nick went to Nick and was nicked, Nick is now in nick in Nick.
So if he's good at something, does that make it a Nick-knack?

I was dubbed 'Thin Lizzy' when I was in the Navy. Almost everyone was given some kind of nickname. My favorites were 'Dirty Deeds' and 'Ma Bell'.
