Awesome, purely awesome.

I can think of many signs with the same wit that I would create if I was every a sign maker. Unfortunately they all sound kind of like a bad t-shirt when I write them down but are still funny in my head.

It's a darn good sign! :)

Ain't it the truth.

(It had to have been for mini-golf, no?)

If they are collecting money from patrons for the privilege of playing said game, the sign, while certainly sensible, is not exactly a good business move.

i am curious as to what game the sign is for, but think that it applies to most games. although sometimes, we are forced into playing games we don't understand, and that is a problem!

amen. great find.

If comments post from me three times, I apologize. Blogger doesn't seem to be taking comments from me at all.

I saw this sign as I wandered around on the last day of a mostly empty, rain-soaked fair. The booth it was in front of was empty, which may suggest that Julia's point is a good one.

Very very funny. If only everything could be as simple as that. Heh.

We need a sign like that posted at the entrance of state universities. At least, we need it on my state university campus. Unfortunately, though, these kids don't read.

LOVE it!

Amelie said...

brilliant. That should be put up in a lot of places (I second furrow on the universities, for example).

Good advice, although maybe not so good for the vendor, as Julia said. I haven't been to a fair in years. Last time I went I got to sleep overnight and help guard the chicken tent.

Magpie said...

That is a thing of great beauty.

I'm reacting to this one as someone in customer service, and oh, it warms my heart to the core!

That is a very good sign. I know many places that should be hung and printed in bold letters.

Catherine said...

Now, that's some sound advice...

hahahaha!! too bad the infertility game isn't bound by any set of consistent or logical rules.

I get where you are going with this, but part of me, the part that should keep her mouth shut and just understand what you are saying.. has to ask, "but maybe you have to play and lose before you can play and win.. and maybe you are supposed to learn from playing?" Ah.. but I hate people who say that we are supposed to learn some lesson. I just hate that.
