i’ll break your arm

bathroom-note.jpg

i just love the backwards logic of “don’t touch” notes that add a more specific (and superfluous) imperative as an afterthought — like “or eat” in this one.

as an interesting coda to this note, jim in minneapolis says his former roommate “later got a can of pink spray paint and circled the potholes in our driveway, drew arrows to them, and wrote THIS IS AN ISSUE on the asphalt. he drove a jeep, too, so I don’t know what his problem was.”

  1. He’s talking about actual shit, isn’t he?

  2. That’s really funny. Cool blog, by the way.

  3. This one gets an A+ for redundancy. I mean, that little afterthought of “don’t use” — wouldn’t using involve touching and therefore already not permitted? And what’s up with the obsession with pink?

  4. Maybe the guy is just a big Stripes fan.

    Psycho:The name’s Francis Soyer, but everybody calls me Psycho. Any of you guys call me Francis, and I’ll kill you.
    Leon: Ooooooh.
    Psycho: You just made the list, buddy. Also, I don’t like no one touching my stuff. So just keep your meathooks off. If I catch any of you guys in my stuff, I’ll kill you. And I don’t like nobody touching me. Any of you homos touch me, and I’ll kill you.

  5. hahaha. the potholes part got me. that would be funny to see.
