Perverse and often baffling

May 6th, 2008 · 120 comments

Which clip art catastrophe raises the most new and troubling questions in your mind?

Is it exhibit a, from New York’s West Village?

Please please please...no dogs

(Think about the designer’s thought process here for a moment. Why the sunglasses? And not just any shades…but electric blue? Ditto, the sunflower.)

Exhibit b, From a casino in Cambodia?

(Does no crossed out mean…yes?)

Or exhibit c, from a pharmacy in Berlin?
Vitamine sind jetzt wichtig!

(Trust me: speaking German is no help here.)

If you can’t decide, remember that your first instinct is usually the best choice (um, except when it’s not).

      Well I believe the last one is a sign implying that you should take vitamins while you participate Ramadan a muslim tradition to faste for a month or so(well they call it faste but they still eat before dusk and after dawn) but the exception of eating during the day is not the only exception it also is to not have intercourse, not drink alcoholics or to smoke. thus it can’t really be a condom ad. because the muslims are not allowed to have intercourse during Ramadan(atleast those who participate)
      BTW. I’m no muslim but when you’re country is overrun by them…

      (so I was debating whether or not to tear into this post since making fun of a non-English speaker isn’t very sporting, but if you’re going to end your comment in a racist remark, then all bets are off)

      So how does one drink an alcoholic?

      (hmm… after all the build up, that was the best I could come up with?)

      To the amazon making fun of me. No worries about making fun of my english it’s a learning point and you’re most certainly not the worst out there. but though I am non-English I was not speaking, I was typing.
      Now about the subject of drinking alcoholics I was unsure if this was correct but to lazy to say alcoholic beverages, now that I know alcoholics is not a synonym to the afor mentioned you won’t see that mistake any longer from me.
      Then finally about the racist remark in the end, I tried to make it more witty but couldn’t come up with something thus I just planted it like this. I don’t hate the muslims other than I am annoyed by the tendency from some to not adapt to the dominant culture. Infact my stepgrandfather is muslim and I love him(in a nonsexual way(perv)).

      And to help soulofaqua further – if you don’t want to sound racist, best not use ‘overrun’. It has implications of vermin. Even if some of your best friends *are* Muslim. Oh, wait, no, some of your extended family. But not a blood relative. Glad we cleared that up.

      The whole of New York, Delaware, Connecticut and New Jersey used to be a dutch colony named “Nieuw Nederland” but multiple conflicts with the English ended with this area becoming English. It is wondered that if we had not lost that colony that america would have spoken dutch.

    I appreciate the reference the title is making. I also agree that these all oscillate between bafflement and (albeit vague) understandability.

    The first thing that came to mind with the dog, was the friend of Biff from 1955 in Back to the Future that wore the 3d looking glasses. So is this a 1955 dog?

    My first choice was a, but then I studied b and came up with way more questions: 1) At first glance I couldn’t tell what the woman was doing in the second picture, then I realized she was rollerblading. Who would rollerblade through a Casino? 2) No crossed out would be a double negative, right? 3)Don’t two negatives cancel each other out? 4) Does that mean that people can’t say ‘no’ in that casino? Yeah. I’m going with b.

    my favorite bits about sign(s) 2 are:
    1. Hand guns, cats, dogs, and cameras of various types while possibly prohibited are of small enough concern that they are all mixed together on one sign, BUT rollerblading backwards without proper safety equipment is such an OVERWHELMING problem it gets its own clearly marked sign.
    2. I am forced to wonder, with the possible camera prohibition did our submitter snap this pic of the signs shortly before s/he was wrestled to the ground and had his/her camera confiscated to be returned at such time s/he lost every penny to the casino and might want something to hock?

      ugh, re#2: They probably snapped the pic before they had to go back to the car and drop off the camera and their Smith and Wesson revolver (with no clip).

    If you look more closely at the casino sign you’ll notice that “no” is prohibited. Apparently this is a very libertarian establishment where everyhting else is fine and dandy.

    I guess some people took it too far so the manager had to post a note reminding women that urinating on the floor is no longer an option.

    • #37.1   unholyghost2003 bang

      but floor urination is only a non option for WOMEN? What, is this casino run by SOME GUY seeking retribution?

      Men don’t generally urinate in open spaces. We prefer plants or corners. Then nobody notices and everybody is subjected to that strange stale urine smell. I get off on the idea that each molecule of pee-stink I leave behind carries a smidge of my DNA. Breathe me deeply, my friends, breathe me deeply.

    Haven’t you seen Men In Black? That’s no dog- he’s a Remoolian!

      Again, I hate to be pedantic (ok, not really), but I believe Frank the Remoolian was a pug, and this dog is clearly an English Bulldog.

    • #38.2   GhostWriter bang

      That is exactly the kind of overthinking that has kept you off the Special Agent squad.

      First off, the dog in the pic is a Pug, and not a Bulldog. Secondly, Frank wasn’t actually a pug, he was a Remoolian. Thirdly, Since Remoolians disguise themselves as dogs, it doesn’t matter whether the dog in the pic is a Pug or Bulldog, because either could be a Remoolian in disguise.

      Fourthly, Remoolians have poor ultraviolet sensors, so the dark blue lenses were the tell. Now, quit thinking so hard and turn on your Ipod Tracking Map before we lose him!

      Please slow down. I am having difficulty taking notes in this egg-shaped chair.

      However, I stand by my original assertion; it’s not a pug, it’s a bulldog.

    I so want to bring any other type of dog to the Casino in sign B. Just because the sign is so anti Scottie. Why Scotties? I doubt anyone in Cambodia has a Scottie. (Do they even have dogs as pets there? Call me racist, but that would be like a sign in America saying no Chickens allowed.)

    OK the bottom one is a very funny pic for sure

    Speaking Turkish German does help in decoding this however

    It’s advising that during RAMADAN when observant muslims fast during daylight hours, Vitamins are extra crucial

    Well…if you speak German and know what happens during Ramadan, you can put two and two together and come up with something in the neighborhood of four….but I’m not smart enough to figure out why the girl in pink boots is banned in Cambodia. Unless it’s because she’s been wading in toxic waste and that’s why they’re melting off her feet?

    The bulldog sign is just cute. ANYTHING with bulldogs on it is cute.
