I was a sign painter in my PK (pre-kids) life. I loved my job and
learned a lot. I learned that most people don't notice or read signs.
But I notice signs, yes sir I do. Here is a sampling of interesting
ones I have noticed right here in our town:
I noticed this one as we were sitting in the car waiting for the ferry. I think
the thing that gets me is why does it say doggy? And why use the word poop?
Is it only in Alaska that such terminology would be used instead of something
a little more, oh I don't know, professional?

In the airport. Now I know this has to be an Alaskan thing. Where else
would they have had such a problem that they feel a need to warn you
about leaving a fishy smell in their rental car? And animals in the trunk-
do I even want to know?
I couldn't agree more...
This made me wonder what would happen if someone
teeter tottered more than 5 M.P.H.
And this one--I was supposed to be helping by eyeballing the sign to
level it but I chose instead to focus on sneaking a flattering picture of the
famous Mr. Home Repair. Go ahead--click on it--you know you want to.
Hey--could you hold a pen in your mouth like that while lying on your back,
wearing sandals and one knee pad with highwater Carhartts, balancing the sign
with one hand and holding one eye shut?
I didn't think so.
