I'm taking exception to my general principal today. Mostly because stupidity on signs is advertising stupidity. Not that you have a bad product, but there should be more care in putting out a quality message. Unless you're a mattress salesman.
Today I'm going to laugh at peoples mistakes. 2 items specifically.
1) Accidental - It should be "TOO bad common sense isn't".
2) Intentional - A self fulfilling statement of lacking common sense. Similar to "there are 3 kinds of people in the world; those who can count and those who can't."
3) Real Estate Issues - The sign is too small for the intended message. It may be starting a letter.
"To bad common sense,
it a shame that you are such a good teacher and I fail to pay attention."
the gray sky contrary to what the weatherman predicted. I'll trust the weatherman. I don't need an umbrella."
I laugh at all 3 of these options.
Working Together for the Perfect Fit
I saw this for about 3 weeks before it hit me that this is so close to being good sign but it is actually terrible. 2 months later I finally pulled over and snapped the pic.
It is nice, except the pieces don't fit. This is a great example of a slight error that instead of being able to be overlooked, it thwarts the entire message. The pieces don't work together. They aren't the perfect fit; they don't fit at all.
So Parents & Business can work together. Community (which would be parents & business) can work with teachers. But nothing works with any of the schools; which may be true. But why would you advertise it unless you were asking for reform?
Ellwood Area Education Association should be embarrassed. It is the kind of thing if you were for the intent of your message you smack yourself in the forehead. I laugh at you.
(all of this being said knowing that I am just as silly, stupid, and ignorant. As any of my blog posts will clearly demonstate. I laugh at myself more than anyting else)
