(click to embiggen) I can buy the quotes on teh "ate too much" breakfast, but the "10 oz" steak is way over the line. And I would like to know what is so unconventional about the fish and chips. Thanks, Jason.

I would like to believe this is an ironic reference to the fact that all americans who aren't native americans are descended from immigrants, but I doubt it. Maybe they mean the people who live in the anti-american states. You know, the blue ones. Thanks, Bianca.
Maggie spotted this on the door of the secretary in her husband's academic department. There are a number of things Judi could be referencing here. Evidently the department affairs head straight toward Judi's office. I'd go home too.
Tricia spotted this in Panama. I must say my favorite part is the location and content of the random breakfast food pictures. However, the "blog" has a history of loving breakfasts of questionablequality.
I always get kind of weirded out when restaurants claim to have homemade food. Like, did somebody bring it in from their house? Is that sanitary? So I have to admit I believe this is actually necessary. At least I hope it is. Thanks, Cliff in Columbus, OH.
Craig spotted this on Newfoundland, and explains, "a Jiggs Dinner is a cooked dinner of salt meat (corned beef), split peas, potatoes, carrots, turnip, and cabbage." Evidently you may or may not want to ask your server about it on some day of the week.
Amiela spotted this one in Atlanta, GA. Who knows what food you will actually get when you order there. And apparently they are quoting somebody who said "Have a Safe Day" but THEY are adding the double exclamation marks.
Gary writes, "This is part of the shared storage area in my downtown Atlanta loft building. As a matter of grammatic principle, I always leave this door open." It really would be just a little more awesome if there were also quotations on "that means you" but alas. Either way, you can close the door or make it close to closed so your rowdy friends can get in. Whatever.
This sign is really charming. I think you're supposed to imagine a librarian of your choosing saying whichever statement she comes with. Thanks, Rachel and friend who spotted this in a Harvard library.
We've seen fakeprofessionalism before, but I think this one is extra-special as the name of the company is clearly a cover-name for some other operation. Perhaps one where the professional expectations are... different. Thanks Matt and Mary.
My favorite part of this sign is the random quotation marks between statements. Which both are so exciting they get three exclamation marks. Whoever "they" are. Thanks Brian, who spotted this in Fresno.
I like the way this makes it seem that Trinity Properties' slogan is "looking for an apartment". Maybe if you're looking too you can give them some advice? OR maybe they are LISTENING. Thanks, Russell.

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.
