This sign, submitted by David, looks remarkably similar to this one. And so does the guy holding it for that matter. I think we have a repeat offender on our hands. The "details in the bible" bit on this one is really my favorite, though it does not have quotations. Maybe the "while you are able" bit signifies a subconscious affinity for Calvinism?
Vinnie saw this one when he was at a hotel in Iowa for work. I would clearly go to this place, because it's called Sneaky Pete's, and I don't care what they cook the food on, when, and what kind of service the bar has.
Mike sent me these featuring his friend Jacqui emphasizing the emphasis quotes. It's somewhere in Canada. I like that these are clearly the same place, but have different messages with different misuse of quotation marks. I am not sure if it's actually "noisy" or not.
this one you probably have to enlarge to see, but it says "songwriter" nashville's newest "Rozetta Linger". Susan saw it in a parade. I guess she is having her songs ghostwritten and using an assumed name. Good one.
I never understand putting these signs on cars. Your asshole driving is in memory of your deceased friend or relative? Thanks for the update. But this memory may or not be loving. I'm not sure if that's better or worse. Thanks, Matt.
Mikey G explains, "It's from First Monday Trade Days in Canton, TX. Basically, the world's biggest open-air flea market. People rent scooters and ride them around because the place is so big (and they're so lazy - half the people riding them aren't even elderly or disabled in any way). But yeah, apparently some scooters are allowed near the place through which people might enter."
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.
