I'll just repeat Peter, who wrote, "While the real jewel of this sign I snapped in newberry, florida today is the bottom one, the 'brand new' makes me skeptical above, as well as the 'round' and 'oval.'"
It's not so much that I disagree that one of those woman silhouettes demands that anything suggesting "class" requires quotation marks. More that why would you draw attention to your own lack of class. As submitter Ellen wrote, "This inscription is a mystery wrapped in an enigma wrapped in bacon to me."
William explains, "I took this picture while on my trip to Japan this past June at a hostel in Tokyo. In the communal kitchen there was this sign in the cabinet. We weren't quite sure what it meant, but we got some pretty dirty ideas." "free butter" is obviously quite different from regular butter. Like, uh, margarine?
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.
