People may want to call this stuff "improper English", but I'd guess that the person who wrote this sign speaks African American Vernacular English. Many people call it bad English or incorrect, but it`s not, it has its own grammar and vocabulary. Some consider it a dialect of English while others consider it a creole of American English and some west African languages. Laugh all you want, but it`s not technically wrong.

IS: 3rd person singular present indicative of be. BE: (used with the present participle of another verb to form the progressive tense): I am waiting. ARE:present indicative plural and 2nd person singular of be. so they all work just as well.
