Since signs are really just humans in writing, there are like a million different kinds out there.
Exhibit A: nice
There are NO PISSING ON THE BUILDING PLEASE! kind of humans. And then there are this kind:
Now I don't know about you, but I'd feel reeeeally bad about peeing on the nice plants. The angry building? Not so much. Not like I'd pee on a building or anything. But still.
Exhibit B: helpful
And just like humans, some signs are supereasy to understand... and some are not. This one is painted on a busy street near our house:
If my human and her gimpy brain was in charge of of saving the world from oncoming traffic, we'd all be squashed by now. But whoever made this LOOK sign knew exactly how to save us. Superhelpful, right?
Exhibit C: huh?
Uhm. Anyone know what this sign is about??
My human says a circle with a line is like universal for NO. I get that. But I still have no idea what the sign is trying to tell me. I guess it could mean No Pee, but it seems kinda weird to be so worried about pee you paint a great big giant sign on the front of your house.
Dutch said it could mean No Pugs. Or even No Puglet. Whatever. I say if a sign is too lazy to spell stuff out, you shouldn't have to worry about doing or not doing or whatever it's kinda-sorta-but-not-really telling you.
Exhibit D: government signs (aka, all of the above)
This is the smoking sign I didn't show you yesterday. The city put them all over our neighborhood so it wasn't hard to
pose with find one.
I guess this sign kinda makes sense. If you read it four times. But even then it's still kinda confusing. Google says government stuff is like that. I guess the government isn't exactly human, but you'd think it could hire one to put words on signs. I'm just glad the government isn't in charge of keeping us from getting squashed.
PS: I totally agree that I deserve/need/MUST HAVE some bacon, asap. You think there's a sign out there for that?!?
