Yes, adults might sit on it, but it's for babies. Have you ever seen a 250 lb baby?
Come on. Work with me here.

Year ago I'd love to have seen a baby changing station. I'd often have gleefully changed mine for one that slept at night like everybody elses.

JK I love him to bits.

Crash Funny sign

I don't have a picture, but there is a sign in a chicken place here that says, "Our Homemade Special Sauce. $.25 - 2 ounces. $1.99 - 8 ounces."

I asked the manager why I couldn't just buy four two-ounce containers and spend $1.00 for eight ounces.

He said he had asked the owner the same thing, but that's the prices he wanted and refused to change them.

Default SignSpotting (from Lonely Planet)

I love signs like these - one of my all-time favorite sites, besides this one of course (not to mention all-time favorite bathroom books), is SignSpotting - entertains me for hours!

So that's how Jesus did it.

And all this time, you thought it was a miracle.

Not really a sign, but i just found a typo on my study guide for my government final that i thought was hilarious.

"Pubic officials must prove malice in the publication of inaccurate statements to prevail in libel charges against the media."

I wonder what a pubic official's job would entail??
