A Pic Good Enough for My Flickr, My Blog, AND My Twitter


O man! I can't tell what I love most about this sign.

Is the the unnecessary quotation marks? ("Illegal" implies that it's actually legal.)

Or maybe it's the image that it conjures....of a horrible, unspeakable incident involving Silly String. Dear God, what HAPPENED last year?

Ok, so maybe I don't "brush my teeth," or "wear deodorant." I don't "shower on a daily basis," or even "at all." But, I do know what "scare quotes" are. I'm guessing the author of this wonderful sign was fulfilling his (or her) community service requirement after the tragic "blinding of Jimmy Driscol" last year with the "silly" string...
