Hello Everybody! Autumn the Puppy here!
Now next weekend is the Memorial Holiday here in the United States, so our esteemed Editor-In-Chief will be hosting The Sunday Funnies while Piper D. Katt and I have the weekend off.
One of his favorite bits is to talk about Burma Shave signs, those comedic and sometimes poignant road side markers of the past.
However, there are also other funny signs out there in the world if you know where to look for them.
Wouldn't you hate to be out and about, in need of a building's facilities, only to see: “TOILET OUT OF ORDER. PLEASE USE FLOOR BELOW.”
Now hopefully they meant the restroom on the lower level.
Me, I always go outside when I need to, but do prefer my privacy to take care of business.
In a Laundromat, seeing a sign that reads "AUTOMATIC WASHING MACHINES: PLEASE REMOVE ALL YOUR CLOTHES WHEN THE LIGHT GOES OUT." actually means to empty the device when it's done.
If any of you had other ideas just remember, this is a FAMILY e-zine!
You can just imagine going through a Safari Park and seeing a sign to the affect of "WILD ANIMALS, PLEASE STAY IN YOUR CAR."
What I want to know is how did those animals ever get a license, let alone a car?
And don't even get me started on how any of them ever managed to squeeze into a vehicle.
It still irks me that I have a dog license and my people still won't let me drive when they let me in their car.
It's even worse that the only time I'm ever allowed in their car to begin with is when they take me to the Vet, but that's another matter.
When you see a sign on a repair shop door that says: "WE CAN REPAIR ANYTHING. PLEASE KNOCK HARD ON THE DOOR - BELL DOESN'T WORK." it makes you wonder just how good their skills actually are, let alone whether or not they know about Truth In Advertising Laws.
Some husbands would joke that it's their dream to see outside a second-hand shop: "WE EXCHANGE ANYTHING! BICYCLES, WASHING MACHINES, ETC. WHY NOT BRING YOUR WIFE ALONG AND GET A WONDERFUL BARGAIN?"
They don't get the point that the business is hoping to increase sales by having you bring your spouse in to shop too but remember, how would the husbands feel if the sign suggested women bring their men in?
And on that note♫, that's all the time and space I have for now.
As previously mentioned, The Free Choice E-zine's Editor-In-Chief will be here next weekend because of Memorial Day but in any event TAKE CARE and STAY SAFE!😷—AtP.
