A little notice for the special snowflakes who move out to the country and expect it to be just like the suburbs: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=165134223611325&set=a.121845341273547.7691.114568468667901&type=1&ref=nf

I read halfway through all of the posts and decided to get mine in here- I hope it has not been posted previously  ;D


Back in 1994 the Stanley Cup was won by the New York Rangers in the 7th game against the Vancouver Canucks. I was living in Vancouver at the time and the playoffs had riveted the entire city. Vancouver wasn't exactly known for having the most dedicated fans, there tended to be a level of complacency or even downright flakiness (not sure if it is still that way but it sure was then) but this championship playoff brought out the fan in everyone!  The defeat was disappointing but it was very quickly evident that the "fans" were headed back to complacency when a banner was placed over a Highway 1 overpass the next day.

It read: 

Highway 1
Canucks 0

Linked offsite for potential Olympic spoiler (men's cycling time trials): A certain small village in Suffolk has had its sign put to good use...

Got this e-mail from the small vacuum/sewing machine shop down the road: 


OPPS!  We goofed!

Some stuff about how they'd forgotten that they'd put out advertisement for a weekend sale of something or else the other, but I was thinking that they goofed in more ways than one.

I started a new job recently and I'm very, very impressed at how well the company takes care of its employees.

As an Engineering firm, they also have a geek sense of humour.
Our boss just ordered these: http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/b87c/?srp=1 for everyone in the office.  ;D

Haven't read the thread, but I wanted to post these before I forget.

Once, in high school, a friend and I were driving past a church. The sign said, "God is still on the throne." Being the exceptionally mature 17-year-olds that we were, we dissolved into a fit of giggles. We still sometimes giggle when we pass that church.

My inner 17 year old is laughing hysterically.

There's a school near here called Central. Their main parking lot is west of the building, so they have the sign "Central Park West".

There's a "slow congested children" sign somewhere in Oregon  :P

Yesterday at a stoplight I was behind a car with a rear window decal that read "Godspeed." It was all white except for the S, which was red and rendered almost invisible by the red brake light just above it. So it looked for all the world like "God peed."

Well of course they're slow!  You'd be slow too if you were a zombie!

A bar that we pass to go to our favorite restaurant always has interesting signs out.  Today it was "Open 7 days AWK."  While I know what they meant, that wasn't what the sign said.

There was a print shop about a block away from my dad's business that had a changeable marquee sign (like a church sign) that always had funny sayings up on it, which, since they weren't a church, tended towards the merely humorous instead of religious.  I guess the business didn't rely on drive-by customers, as I never once saw them actually advertise on the sign.

Sadly, shortly before I moved away from my hometown, the sign ended up with a smaller sign on it saying "This sign used to be funny, but someone stole our letters!"
