I believe this sign says it all.

It’s extra funny to me because when I first looked at it, I thought Wow, she really butchered her margins.


Honorable mentions:


Holly: (Subtle…)


Sarah: (I think it was the accent and that WTH mask that got me)


Dana: (Very first entry received. Love it.)


Captian Jean-Luc Picard: (Another one that took me a few seconds to get)


Heidi: (Nice and direct)

Hee. I loved this contest! I wanted to make one of my own, but I would read through all the entries and think "If only I'd thought of that first! Or that! Or that!" So I decided to just sit back and enjoy :-) It was a great idea!!

Ha! It took me a minute to get the first one :D

I'm slow.
I still don't get the first one!

Got it!

Ha! I didn't get it at first either. In case anyone else still doesn't get it, the text is in the shape of a middle finger.

Congrats to Maryann!

That was so funny! Good choices!

I liked the first draft one, too.

And was it Amy that said "No Hippie Shit!"?

Thanks Jill and everyone! This was fun and such a good contest. I have so many favorites. And I'm a little disturbed that so many people appreciate my sense of humor ;) I can't think of a better way to address this sign and everything that is wrong with it. We can only write so many informative letters to boards.
Thanks for giving us a fun way to vent!

You should send the runner up signs as well...in case they don't get the message from the winning sign.

MomTFH, no but I forgot to include the "no hippie shit" one in the runner-ups. I knew there was one I was forgetting. Dang.
