thanks to reader Damon who noticed this sign at a gas station in South Elgin, IL. He writes:
"I was so amused by the "warning" to "stop" one's "engine," and the
illegality of "dispensing gasoline" into improper "containers" (with or
without "an attendant on duty"), that it took a minute for me to realize
that the only phrase left unquoted was "self-service island.""
I don't think I've ever seen people use quotes instead of bullets before. Maybe we should read it like a play. It's two people talking about warnings at a self-service island.
