reminder


Jon spotted this one in Decatur IL. I like the opening ' and closing ". And that 'Put a lid on it!" is like an office-wide slogan or something, like "Take a bite out of crime".

Maybe they're quoting the Squirrel Nut Zippers song?

And what is a coffee/beverage? It's like Linens & Things!

Andi said...

I don't know about you, but I love a cup of beverage to start the day.

Jeff said...

Is there an '80s show with a lid on it"? That's the kind of thing that immediately springs to mind. Like they're trying to be trendy... 20 years too late.

Perhaps it means, "We'll look the other way if you take a cup, but please be secretive about it." If that's the case, it's a clever double meaning, and the quotes are appropriate.

What is "N THE WORL" supposed to be?

Debbie said...

"n the worl" is short for "in the world". As in, if you take a cup out of the breakroom and in the world...

I like to imagine everyone tweaked out of their minds on breakroom coffee screaming like banshees. "Put a lid on it!"

i'd like to think it's a ticker tape questioning the whereabouts of carmen sandiego.
