Found Silliness

For today's offering of found items, I'd like to share some things that I've encountered that struck me as funny.

This sign in a local shop keeper's window reads "WE ACCEPT FOOD STAMP." Only one at a time, please.

These randomly generated words — "fag sashes" — came up as a security check on Facebook the other day. I found it just too funny, in part because it was so unexpected. Shouldn't they — I don't know — remove potentially offensive words from their security checks? Just saying.

This next sign was in a port-a-potty at the John Heinz National Wildlife Refuge. It reads, "NOTICE: YOU ARE USING THIS RESTROOM FACILITY AT YOUR OWN RISK! By entering or using this restroom facility, you agree to completely release Wm. P. McGovern, Inc. (and its officers, shareholders and employees) from all claims, demands and lawsuits for any and all injuries or damages you suffer which are related, in any manner, to this restroom facility or your use of it."

Wow, I didn't know it was so... dangerous. Maybe I should have held it until I got home.

This final poster promoted a class, based on a book of the same name, called "Extreme Preparation for Dating: For Single Adults Who Refuse to Settle." I found this in a shop window Winchester, Virginia, where my sister was living earlier this year.

I keep wondering what "Extreme Dating" might involve. I imagine two people enjoying a cup of coffee and a nice chat, and then bungee jumping off a bridge, the coffee flying upwards in an arc. Talk about dating on the rebound.
