This is posted on the bulletin board at a local park. I find it funny that someone took a picture of a sign, printed the sign and then put protective covering on the sign and then stapled it to the board. I like that they left the chain link fence, and the rusted bolts of the sign.
I also like the descriptive nature of the original sing. They don't leave it at the normal, "pick up your dog's poo." They explain why you need to pick up your dog's poo, like this needs further explanation beyond the common sense that your dog's feces are disgusting. I think maybe all signs should have further explanation.
DO NOT LITTER - Littering makes our neighborhood look ugly, thus lowering the value of our homes, and possibly lowering the quality of cold cuts at the corner store. A side note here. Often a sign will read, "Please Don't Litter." I'm all for politeness, but I'm not sure it's needed on a governmental sign.
SLOW CHILDREN CROSSING - Running over children is bad. You don't want to run over children as people will get really upset with you. Also, children aren't all that bring and might dart out into the middle of the road without looking, so you should drive slower and more cautiously than you normally would.
WRONG WAY - If you drive down this street, bad bad things will happen.
STOP - Hmm, there really is no improving this sign, humorous or otherwise, and I think I'm delving into Dave Barry territory here, so I think i'll stop before I further embarrass myself.
That was a pretty Dave Barry way to end this post.
