What’s Your Sign?

Resurrecting some lighter posts periodically to take my mind off things. I should do more posts like these. I like it a lot more than the sad ones lately.
There are coupons in our staff lounge that are for one free child for each adult at the Baltimore Zoo. My first thought was that I don’t need another child, but then I wonder if they mean a human child or an animal child. If it is an animal child, I might reconsider, depending on the animal. One free child of any kind seems like a good deal, but possibly illegal. It’s an interesting promotion.


The coupon made me think of other signs(I know the coupon was not a sign) that makes me wonder. There is the classic “Slow Children Playing” sign. I’m never sure if they mean slow mentally or physically but I see the “Slow Men Working” signs and I’m happy that the kids grew up and found a job. I see “No Outlet” signs on a lot of streets and I wonder how they use electrical appliances with no outlets. Maybe those are all Amish streets? One day I will go down one of those streets to investigate. There’s also the classic question of how the deer know that one particular location is where they are supposed to cross and couldn’t we make them cross the street at a more convenient location?

There was a daycare center on my route to my old job. The sign said it was MMA Daycare. I chose to believe that it meant it was a mixed martial arts daycare center and all of the kids were fighting every day after school. Someone I know shared the below sign. It sounds like an interesting fundraiser. I guess they want you to feel good about youself. I assume it can’t be too difficult to fight children with diabetes. diabees

Any funny or interesting signs you’ve seen?

    I’m glad you have a semi-warped sense of humor, it does make life more interesting, doesn’t it?
    On the Zoo ticket, do we get to chose our free child or they randomly handed out? Where do they get these children? From Lost and Found? Inquiring minds want to know!

      I never thought about that part. If they are from lost and found they must me low quality. If they were good kids someone would have gone back for them.

    This really made me laugh out loud because of the truth behind all those signs (and lack of clarification!). We always just say “ya, but they actually mean…” and yet we are taught to say what we mean and mean what we say hahahaha

    There used to be a local flooring outlet called Bacchus, which I giggled every time we passed because Bacchus is the god of drunken debauchery.
