You know, even during all those months when I wasn’t blogging, I was still taking photos of random signs like I was going to blog about them. I knew I would eventually, and it turns out that “eventually” means about six or seven months. Ahem. Allow me to present the first sign:
Marty and I saw this sign when we went to Chemainus, town of famous* murals here on Vancouver Island. (*I don’t know if the murals are Famous-famous, but the town’s ubiquitous marketing sure leads Vancouver Islanders to believe in the murals’ prominence on the world’s tourism stage).
Anyway. I didn’t even see one mention of this particular “mural” in any of the brochures. You would think that poop would be headline news, especially if it was closing out. (And on sale, at that!) Nope. No mention. No warnings. This sign totally caught us off guard on the way into town– it’s actually the first sign you see en route to the Famous-famous murals. (I’m sure town council would be thrilled to know this.)
It was only when we were leaving Chemainus that we realized it was the “Pro Shop” that was going out of business. (Insider tip: Check the back of signs you don’t understand. Chances are, the answer you seek is there.)
Gotta love the sign bombers with the humor of a 4-year old, right? (And the people who insist that their husbands pull over on the side of the highway, stop the car, and idle for a few minutes while their wives take a photo of said potty humor sign. It needed to be done. FOR THE SAKE OF THE INNER CHILD IN ALL OF US!) Having fun with potty humor? Check! I’m feeling better already!
Kathy thinks poop is good too, but won’t spell it out entirely…
That’s even BETTER! I’m going to start writing “po*p” from now on. So awesome. 🙂
Oh my gosh, that’s hysterical! 🙂
Isn’t it, though? Gotta love random sign re-arranging. 🙂
Anything involving poop makes me laugh. Unless it’s on me.
True dat. I was going to say I’ve never had poop on me before, but then dozens of seagull poop stories came back to me. The memories had been blocked up until then, but now that I’m remembering them in full technicolor glory, I can attest that having poop on you is no laughing matter.
I spent the afternoon shoveling bird poop of the duck and chicken varieties out of the coops and into the compost bin. I totally need to have a poop close out sale. And a sign.
Haha, AWESOME! Maybe you can just enlarge the photo from my blog and hang it on your fence? Things always happen for a reason, you know…
I totally would have made brad pull over too. There’s nothing wrong with being a four year old once in a while!
So glad to know I’m not the only person who appreciates a good poop sign. 🙂
I love these posts and have missed them over the last several months. Glad to have you back!
Thanks, Lisa! What a way to usher in the Sunday Signage posts again, right? With POOP! Happy to be back, and thanks for reading!
You’re back!!! Man I’ve missed you.
Finally hooked on sauerkraut. Taught a friend the other day using a orint out of your post.
Take care honey, Nic xx
YES!!! It makes my heart sing to have converted another person to the joys of raw kraut. You have no idea.
I love this, of course, having a four-year-old and nine-year-old who routinely fall into bouts of spouting potty humor!
This post is perfect for them, Michelle. IT’S LIKE I KNEW!
I showed the pic to our six year old niece as well, but made her read it out loud to get the full effect (she is still learning how to read). You should have seen the combination of confusion and delight on her face when she realized that a GROWN UP would have taken a picture of the word POOP… and then made her say it OUT LOUD! Complete awesomeness. 🙂
What a hoot! I would have wanted a shot of that, as well. But, seriously, wouldn’t you have checked both sides?! Too funny!
Hugs from Ecuador,
LOL! I would have stopped for that one, too.
Seriously: how could anyone pass this up? It is Sunday Signage GOLD! 🙂
