What I like about these pictures that Danial P. took at her neighborhood garage sale is that the second one explains what counts as "good stuff" and one of the items is stuff. That's right guys. There will be STUFF at the garage sale..
Evidently here they demand fake attention for discussion of the appliance formerly known as toilet. However, I am kind of disturbed by this trend this is the thirdexample on this blog of this basic message. Who keeps flushing paper towels?? Thanks, Kathryn.
Lindsey spotted this at a diner on the West Coast. I must say, the weirdest things about this have nothing to do with the double-slogans with quotation marks (and apparent feminism of visors? what?). The weirdest things are: 1) clip art lady golfer 2) lace visors? Conclusion: try it on, but only as a joke.
Rich saw this at the Hyatt in Cincinnati. Evidently overly dramatic people can use the stairs whenever. Rich adds the extra wrinkle that there were no stairs anywhere near the sign, so maybe "stairs" needs to be in quotes instead.
This was at Shelly's office in Oregon. She writes, "We’re not quite sure what a Criticle is, but it may be the name of whatever is eating one of my coworker’s plants at night." I actually don't understand anything about this sign. Why shouldn't people fix it?
JP in Brazil spotted this one. It translates: sale "a violin" (value: r$ 4oo.00). JP explains this is about us$ 242. Well, he sent it to me like a month and a half ago, so it could be more by now. I guess at that price it can barely be called a violin, just something aproximating one.
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.
