I enjoy a clever sign. In Spokane, this business sign brought a chuckle: I took my wife to Japan for our 25th. On our 50th, I go get her.
A few seem to be placed by a Zen poet.
While wandering around the main Brown Building supply building, I came across a treasure trove of tin signage from the l940’s or 50’s. It’s an usual place to find boxes upon boxes of signs, many featuring Marilyn Monroe.
A few signs left with me. A tin sign is an assessor, not really needed, but, if the words and message behind the sign are genuinely funny, then, why not put them on a wall inside the house or barn?
Here’s my favorite:
WE ARE TOO BROKE TO BUY ANYTHING
WE KNOW WHO WE ARE VOTING FOR
YES, WE KNOW JESUS
UNLESS YOU ARE BRINGING COOKIES
PLEASE GO AWAY
I might place this one in the bathroom:
and Loose Women (New Orleans Police Dept.)
Commenting about the signage above: What in the world is a ‘Tinker?’
What would a first-class B&B host post? Turn off cell phones? No phone calls accepted after l0 p.m.? Eat everything on your breakfast plate? Or, this note: We can’t cater to all food cravings. But, cookies are available unless someone gets to them before you do.
