What? You mean the bell will just ring? Without a bell to warn me that the bell's gonna ring? Do people in downtown Portland, Oregon really need a sign like this?

There must be a company out there making a bloody fortune creating signs that warn us something is going to happen without warning. Such as . . .

"CAUTION: Refrigerator light will come on without warning."

"WATCH THIS SPACE: Stupid signs will appear with no advance notice."

And if the sign painter is getting paid by the letter . . .

"ATTENTION: Stupid blog posts will suddenly show up for no apparent rhyme nor reason today or any day for that matter. Without warning."

  1. Love your work! Always try to drop in for a bit of eye candy and philosophy...

    As to signs... "Caution light will go out when refridgrator door closes."


  2. Good one, Shawn, about the fridge light going out . . . someone should make refrigerator magnets with that warning.

    Or this:
    Caution: Refrigerator magnet will stick to metal.


I know it takes time to leave a comment. I truly appreciate it when you do. Thanks!
