sometimes it's too easy

So I assume this means mass-produced domestic light beers only. Thanks Allison.

do it "first"

I guess you don't have to fold this leg, like, first thing in the morning. You could do some other things before that. Clear off the table, for instance. Thanks, Abbey.

more like a not unhappy hour

Seems the hour might not be so happy after all. Thanks, Scott.

leave your "anything" at home

We are not interested in your "anything" around here. Keep it off our refridgerator. Thanks, David.

what are you, "chicken?"

Haley sent this in, and explains, "This was posted at my sorority house during dinner...needless to say, I didn't have any 'chicken'."

completely necessary

I asked my husband, and he said if we ever own a house, we can have quotation mark shutters like these. Thanks, Heather.

suure it is

I don't know what's never going to appear sometime, but it might have something to do with a team shop. Thanks, Dan (who also posted this one on reddit.)

well, more or less

Sounds like they put some apple cinnamony flavoring on there and call it close enough. Thanks Seannie.

off-brand version anyway

Christin spotted this in Australia, where maybe they don't have authentic coke zero? And $2 for one is a good deal?

I can only assume that it's one of these comics below the arrow, and no grain-based breakfast to be found. And, of course, some lids and chickens? what? Thanks to a blackberry user who didn't sign his or her name.

it's a "half a mile"

Well, sure, it feels like a lot longer when your coworkers keep talking to you. Or shorter? Depending on your coworkers? Thanks, Jennifer.

for our "safety"

This sign is like a punctuation party. Everybody came! Thanks, A.

talking tea bag holder?

So this tea bag holder is saying something that NEVER ENDS!!! Thanks, Jasmine.


Frank sent me this, but didn't mention if his office was on the edge of campus, or if his campus is particularly un-collegiate. I can only assume something like that is the case.

by "insulating" it, eh?

I don't know what they really want you to do to your "water heater" but it's shiny! Thanks, Leslie and Jason.

oh is there

Zach spotted this one in Nicaragua. It translates to "there is" "cereal" and "pinolillo" (which is a beverage). So presumably they had none of these things.

It's "cheerful"

Perhaps the sign maker has spoken to the flowers and they are very upset at having been cut. Thanks, Jason.


I assume these are the water-permeable type. Thanks Andrew.

It's "special"

First they poke you with the eraser ends of pencils, then they tickle you with koosh balls. It's a "special" chair massage. Thanks, Jason.

it's "not" allowed, eh?

We really "don't" think you should bring your flask out there. That's a "terrible" idea. Thanks, Bmexx.

"no" recycling

I guess you can put your recyclables in here... as long as you take them back out. To recycle them. Thanks, Dana.

don't bust out your party shoes or anything

Maybe the sum of their "celebration" is this poster. Thanks, Taylor.

Try the "drive thru"

Just to be clear, you do not drive through the Tim Hortons store. That would be terrifying. Thank, Corey.

unless I like it of course

If you're not careful, I think you might be seeing your favorite t-shirt on the super. Thanks, John.

like eating paste?

Gabe found this in his mother's collection from his childhood. He didn't say what kind of "special" behavior he might have engaged in.

"real chicken"

Barely chicken in any sense, I guess. Thanks, Amy.

"do not operate it"

It won't be "any fun" and we really "value" your "life." Thanks, Mike.

wishing you "luck"

Because, really, the house always wins in the long run. Thanks, Brett.

sarcasm inside

This must be the local home of passive aggression. Thanks Liz!

"only" eh?

You may also place other things in that receptacle. Or put the gowns somewhere else, hard to say. Thanks, Andrew.

"southern cook'in"

I don't know what this alleged food is, but I'm not sure I want to. Thanks, Mel.

this way to the trap

Just walk this way to "leave." Thanks, Amy.

the "only" one

Unless you count, like, sewing classes, I guess. Thanks, Megan.

Sunday, March 20, 2011


I guess it's not much of a display either. Thanks, Michael.

don't do it "really"

They "do not" want you to do that "at all." Thanks, Eric.

this "building" is closed

I guess it's a sorry excuse for a building. Thanks, Andrea.

no actual organs

I'm ok with these quotation marks, assuming they only have heart shapes, and no cardio organs. Thanks, Daniel.

Friday, March 18, 2011

if you say so

Obviously this is referencing that hit song, "Please Be Courteous." Thanks, David.

"free rent"

I don't want to think about what you have to do in exchange for rent here. Thanks, Eric.

"barrel of fun"

Yeah, that really looks... fun... ok. Thanks, Clint.

similar to villa pizza

Clint explains, "This is maybe the best pizza in my hometown. It burned down last year, and is opened again recently as carry out only. It cracks me up that the name is in quotes."

We assume

Tracey writes, "To be fair to Walgreens, the DVDs did look pretty crappy."

oh, that guy

Brian suggests this is actually Aquaman. Maybe he's in a copyright dispute, so he has to use this sneaky nickname.

The way Deb described this made it sound like she belongs to this church, she did not say either way how welcome people really are.

"use of elevators"

With all these quotation marks I figure we're looking at some kind of secret code. Or these people are very sarcastic about the condition of the elevators. Thanks, Jenny.

Use the "stairs"

More like a ladder, amirite? Thanks, Tyler.

double time

I suppose if you take out the gluten, that makes it even plainer than regular noodles? Also, you probably will. Because gluten makes things stick together. Thanks, Christopher.

"famous bagels"

Maggie says "Here's hoping they're actually cupcakes. Or kittens." Thanks also to Brandon who maybe had something to do with this photo.

you can "use" it

I guess this truck isn't so useful after all. Or maybe it has bedbugs or something. Thanks, Hsun.


In fact, this bread-like thing is 3-dimensional. Thanks, Jon.
