9 of "10"

My husband spotted this one on a home depot run. I guess they kept asking people until they found 9 who were satisfied.

"Don't forget the lid"

Submitter Nate suggests this is the title of a song about not forgetting the lid.

Where's the "restroom"?

Yeah yeah, I know, it's not actually for resting. Can't we have this one polite fiction, sign-maker? Thanks Steve.

"construction supplies"

I wonder if these are, like, sets that look like a construction site but they are made out of styrofoam. Thanks Adam.

More or less immediately?

There's a lot of wiggle room in this one. Thanks Lysa.

"caffeiene" "kills"

I seriously don't know what this is advertising, so maybe it is some kind of code. Thanks Anna.

So much irony

I don't even know... so many layers... sarcasm, winking, quotation marks... I'll just stay away from this place. Thanks Owen.

Wipe Your "Feet"

I'm not sure what all they want you to wipe here, but let's just assume it's a good idea. Thanks Adam.

It's a metaphor I guess

We're not talking about a LITERAL hurricane, we're saying our SPORTS TEAM is LIKE a hurricane, because of, um, destruction. College education! Thanks Christopher.

Come in and "Queue"

Leonard spotted this in the Dubai airport, where I guess they find either the word or the concept of "queueing" ironic.

"keep" it "closed"

I guess you can do whatever you want with the door. Or maybe they are aware of the exception for when a person wants to go through the door, when you may temporarily open it, and then close it again. Thanks John.

more fake polite

I can't tell if they desperately want the compressors unplugged, or they are too tired of dealing with it to be sincerely polite about it anymore. Thanks Kyle.

Picking up after your dog in general would be great, but faking it is enough to help keep the park clean, apparently. Thanks Kaitlyn.

fake years

Actually, they've been serving the hospitality industry since a 1938-themed party. Thanks mspaintmaestro.

"Kids" show and tell

Spotted in my in-law's basement, I guess this is really for kids at heart to show and tell... at school? I don't know. Also, reminds me of this delightful collection, curated by a colleague.

Some bridge or something

Submitter Richard clarifies, "Oddly enough, this particular 'walkway' was an entirely questionable means of access to the bridge."

Wet Paint "All Over"

So wait, where is the wet paint? In some places? ON ME???? Thanks Bradford.
