fresh fish sold here daily


fresh fish sold here daily
example of a redundant sign in a fish shop. None of the words are needed as the fish are readily visible (and can be smelled some distance away), they are in a shop to be sold not given away, they could not be sold if they were not fresh, they are not being sold anywhere else but here, and to be fresh they must be sold daily
