This sign will be the right size only if you're viewing it on a cell phone. Even then, I enlarged it to show what the dirty rotten bastards at Walmart tried to sell as chicken breast. They almost got me.

I really hate imprecise language written on public signs. At the same Walmart, I've seen signs saying "one of our partners will help you," or one of our Associates. It makes it look like the guy running the cash register has a piece of the pie. When you see that guy standing outside the food bank, the idea that he's receiving a living wage, soon evaporates.

Let's be honest and say, "One of our employees, who took this job because he has a bad back, struggles academically and has run out of options, will reluctantly assist you."

I see this sign often; it's posted above almost every baby changing station in this country. I crack a smile every time. There is so much going on in this rich collection of warnings. I extrapolate on the story of each graphic. They are so intense!

The words alone: Caution, Drop! Never leave! Keep watch!

Could be wedding vows. Could be a secret task forces' credo. Could be a fruit harvesting guide.

This British tea is using a well-known World War II slogan in their labelling.

Noticed, that the tea is decaffeinated.

The kid is going to practice swear words until the spit runs down his neck.

This sign has clearly died. It's for a funeral supply business.

The crow appears to be reading the sign , but he's actually just there for his morning coffee.

Crows and ravens often stop and watch me when I'm doing unusual things. I hope that's not some sort of sign.

You all inspired me to post this picture I took in Cathedral City, CA.

I call it  "Yes, Fonts Matter".  Someone could probably come up with a better title though.

Yes, fonts and spacing appear to matter. It looks like Philip and his sign maker, really fucked up.
