well, they SAY it's random, but i might as well make this interesting to read!

So, I'm pulling up to the pump with my family and I start looking at gas prices and what not, you know. When my dad goes to fill 'er up, he lets out a laugh. Here's what he saw.

So far, so good, but let's take a closer look at that left handle.

Just in case you missed that, here's the "regular" pump, sans badly placed ad.
