Lexicographical Lols

This sign is outside Changsho, a Chinese restaurant on Massachusetts Ave. in Porter Square in Cambridge, MA. I've walked by it several times a week for the past three years or so and it still makes me laugh. This is the only use I've ever seen of this particular adverb. Your car will be towed as a matter of mere duty, form, routine; with a minumum of effort, care, or interest. (With thanks to the OED.)
