Submitter Stephanie sends along this story as well: I spotted this guy standing on the side of the road in Centralia, WA. When I approached him and asked if I could take a picture he said yes, then told me I needed to submit my clothes to Jesus because I was "dressed like a whore." (Miss the reference in the post title? I got this wikipedia article for you, and it will blow your mind.)
Yeah, this is totally the place you "enter" the "contest." Your entries definitely will not be thrown away. Thanks Jane.
(Sorry for the lack of posts, I got distracted by finals week. It's over now, so my new excuse is summer break. Thanks for our patience and your many awesome submissions that I will continue to sort through!)
Please send your submissions via email to bethanykeeley (at) gmail.com. I look at them all, but it might take a while to get to yours -- sorry! I love you all, but I only have so much energy in a day.
If you want your picture to make the blog DO NOT @tweet them, or leave them in a comment. I need them all in the same place. Make sure your emails are easily distinguishable from spam or viruses (I use gmail web interface, so images get previews).
I don't usually post the following: newspaper headlines, personal email, craigslist postings, unprofessional websites. I also tend to not crosspost things from other blogs, since I have so much unique material waiting for me to get to it.
Things I see a lot: silica gel "do not eat"; hair dryer labels; inside the bus "do not drill"; Wal-mart sign about IDs; coffee machine with "2" cup sizes; employees must "wash hands"; that failblog post.
