This sign is obviously only so people can feel like they are being mildly rebellious by swimming after dark. Thanks Joel.

I love everything about this. I'm not sure if "excrement" counts as a quotation marks-worthy euphemism, it's fairly direct, but this is a sign about penguin poo, so inherently funny. Thanks Alexander.


Maybe you get, like, 2 regular bottles and a baby one. Thanks Stephen.

"Now" offers

Maybe they've actually been offering it for years, but it was, like, a joke or something. Thanks Kacy.

I gave a talk this afternoon about this blog at Keene State College, we got this local ice cream that wants you to know you can't "grow" ice cream.

"Beautiful" house

Is realty journalism now? Oh, that's not MY opinion, it's what somebody ELSE said. Glad to know you don't have an opinion on this house, realtor committed to objectivity. Thanks Ben.

"Paper towel"

1) How many signs do I have to post admonishing people to not put paper towels in a toilet? Isn't that self-evident?
2) Maybe it's not really about paper towels? Because quotation marks?
Thanks Andy.
