Submitter Naomi explains: It translates roughly as " 'Soliciting' female cook". My best guess at what it really means: "We don't actually NEED a new cook, but it would be nice to have some female company around here." Either that or it's a thinly veiled call for a housewife from a lonely bachelor.
I'll let submitter Leah explain this one: "My dad coaches Little League baseball and one of the kids' moms made these for the coaches. I think the quotations are less about showing off her pun and more about reassuring my mom that they didn't really... you know... 'score'."
Steve quips, "I'm inclined to believe that 'sandy feet' is a euphemism for something unspeakable, and I can only assume that they hold entirely different standards of cleanliness than the guests regarding dishes."
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.
