I imagine that these quotation marks are to indicate that the driver is a person who wouldn't normally use an expression so foul as "shit" but in this case, for a fancy airbrushed car decor, they are making an exception. Thanks, Bren.
I've got to say, the best one about this one is the increasing number of punctuation marks at the end of the sign, indicating resignation and disgust. I mean, hello, it does "not" work. Thanks, Kelley.
Guys! I found one all by myself! I was going on my semi-frequent subway run when I saw this sign on the neighboring building. I guess "not a trash dump" is really the best you can ask of drunk college students. Related story: my friend James witnessed a woman running around topless in this very parking lot last spring yelling about being done with college and not caring anymore.
I had to deliver this series just as I got it from Tammy, and give you her explanation: We moved to Hoquiam last year, and these small towns are fond of putting up Burma Shave style signs for local events. This series from Ocean Shores WA this week cracked me up. They are very nicely done on wood with routed lettering, so they really "mean" it.
That "derby" is sure going to be fun (and expensive) at the secret date they have it.
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.
