I saw one today on a Community bulletin board. 

Someone was offering what seemed to be a rather nice exercise bike for free.  Part of the poster said, 'It glares at me from the corner.  I want to be able to enjoy my chocolate without its censorious gaze'.

LOL.  Love it.
I have CDO.  It is like OCD but with the letters in alphabetical order, as they should be.

A friend took this picture in Nashville:



I wonder how well they're doing . . .

Haha.  Subtle!

Just saw another good one outside a wine shop.

On one of those funny sign montages: "Please Control Your Children (their manners reflect your love for them)"

Driving down one of the main roads that goes through our town, I saw one driving school, named Leisure Driving is out of business. Hmm!

Not really a sign but...

I just received one of the most amusing mixups in an professional email newsletter. I belong to a national wine club that sends out weekly "wine profiles" on selections they have for sale. It usually has a photo of the bottle with a description of the maker, description of the wine, and suggestions for what it pairs with. This time however they mixed up the "tastes like" and "pairs with" text so that this particular bottle of wine pairs with "cherries, raspberry, clove and exotic spices" while it tastes like "grilled salmon, duck, wild game birds". Ew, I think I'll pass on a wine that tastes like grilled salmon :P

Please explain.

Is it the Korn that bothers you? That's just expected around here, like Kountry Kitchen. We all know it is annoyingly cutesy.

 I think it might be the coverd and the wtih - missing the 'e' and the 't' and 'i' transposed.

It's the words "coverd wtih" just below the cutesy Kettle Korn.

Thanks! I've seen that sign so many times I don't even see it anymore!  :)

The really sad thing it's mass produced!

Maybe somebody can explain this one to me, because I am confused.

Every day, on my way to my office at work, I pass a series of cabinet/closet type things that are used by student organizations to store stuff.  (I work on a college campus.) 

For the past few days, one of them has had a post-it note stuck on it with the words
"I can't get over the butterfly feet"
written on it in purple marker.

I have no idea what this means (maybe something to do with the sliding doors) but it makes me laugh.

Apparently it is making butterfly prints using your feet.

Like so:


Not my feet fyi.

Well, these are a bunch of college students, and some of the organizations that store stuff there mentor children as part of what they do, so that could very well be it, that there are some of those stored there.   :)
