semi-valid ok


Stephe sent me this one. I guess they generally card most people. But the cashier's cousin can get away with it.

How about a driver's license with Mickey Mouse's picture pasted over it?

"We card everyone." Yeah, that's what they say ...

awesome! i wish they'd had a sign like this at the cvs where i tried to buy cold medicine with my recently expired driver's license. i could have argued that my license was definitely a "valid" form of ID.

I think they hit the nail on the head with the idea that a "valid" driver's license is needed. They don't care what you show them - just show them something. Sort of like when a waiter at a restaurant wants a bigger tip and therefore accepts a "valid" ID no matter how sketchy it may be. This idea of phrases that culture understands to be true goes along with my blog: phrasesthatphase.wordpress.com. Check it out for more fun examples of misusing the English language!
