David spotted this in New Zeeland, which explains why we are talking about springs of any kind in December. Hemispheres! I don't think our friends in the south need to feel like their spring is worthy of quotation marks just because it happens during our fall though...
You know, this might be about the idea that intelligence isn't actually measured by the size of your brain, but this person already is suggesting that they (he?) are not very smart, so I'm not sure about that. Or maybe they are secretly a zombie. Thanks, Teri.
Since I often schedule my posts the night before, this image, submitted by Daniel, somewhat accurately describes my announcement that this will be the only post today, since I'm spending time with family. Merry Christmas!
Becky spotted this in Gatlinburg, a place she claims is full of quotation marks, having driven through I can say many of them are likely necessary. For instance, there are no real legends about this restaurant, I'm sure.
This pic is a little dark, because it's a sign in a bar that reads: party like your "not" in Utah.
Leaving the wrong your aside for now, I want to know what it means to party like you're "not" in Utah, if you are, but pretending you aren't, or pretending to pretend, since it's only in quotation marks. Thanks, Patrick.
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.
