That reminds me of the poorly translated chinese laundromat whose motto was "drop trousers here for best results".

Sign on a tire warehouse in Austin, Tx: if it's in stock, we have it!

Sign in a postal substation, also in Austin: There's no reason for it, it's just our policy.

Greetings to the Forum:

Slogan painted on the side of an East coast butcher shop delivery truck:

Quote:
You can lick our chops, but you can't beat our meat.


Oh, yes... almost forgot... hence the edit:

Somewhere there is a urololgist who has the folowing personalized license plate:

Quote:
C ME 2P

In Sarasota there are asphalt paver trucks that say, "This Mud's For You!"

I remember a small diner in Parrish whose sign said, "Eat Here or we'll both starve."

I recall an old joke about a seafood shop by the water. He wanted to have a sign made that said "Fresh Fish Sold Here." It cost more than he expected, so he decided to save a little money by removing the word "here." After all, where else would you look for fresh fish? Still too expensive so he removed the work "sold." People would realize a sign that said "fresh Fish" would mean it's for sale. Still too much, so he removed the word "fresh." Customers would not expect him to sell stale or rotten fish. But it was still a little too much, so he decided a fish store wouldn't need a sign that said "fish" so he left that off as well. So he put up a blank sign.

And then, in my shop . . . drum roll please . . .

My daughter gave me a sign that says "Long Haired Freaky People Need Not Apply." Really.

My avatar shows the back of my 1964 Thunderbird. The photo's too small to see, but the frame around the tag says "I'm the daddy that took it away."

I had a bumper sticker on my truck once that said "Don't complain about Farmers with your mouth full."

I used to have a shirt for The Black Dog Tavern. I think that it had a picture of a squatting dog on the front. On the back it said, "Number 2 in taste."
