Consider this!!!

Evan in San Diego spotted this bilingual warning in a local thrift shop. “I particularly enjoy the vaguely racist implication of the Spanish translation,” Evan adds. “It’s the only sign in the store (among dozens) that’s en espanol.”

Si te robas algo de esta tienda, es lo mismo que robar de alguien que esta infectado con SIDA. Fijate!!! Stealing from this shop is the same as stealing from people with AIDS. Consider this!!!

    Do they think the shoplifters are Robin Hood? That appealing to their morals (already suspect) will stop them?

      Especially when the pharmaceutical tie-in is playing off another comment, but manages to gift wrap them everything together with an attractive bow that directly relates to the topic.

    I like the way they compare it to people with AIDS, is stealing from people with AIDS worse than stealing from people with say, cancer? Or people who are visually impaired? Like AIDS is the worst thing you can have and stealing from people with aids will get you struck down by an almighty power. What if the thief had AIDS? Would he/she think “Awesome! I’ve already got AIDS, so basically they’re saying, feel free to steal, I never realised AIDS had an upside till now…”

      Gin makes a pregnant woman not pregnant. So the rumour goes.

      Other methods to induce miscarriage were very hot baths and gin, extreme exertion, a controlled fall down a flight of stairs, or veterinary medicines

      But a mean man full of gin might have the same effect.

      My great-grandmother used to be a contortionist/prostitute until a bad back forced into becoming a book dealer.

      I remember her dancing a gin and vermouth-induced jig and singing me little ditties such as:

      She offered her honor
      He honored her offer,
      And all night long,
      It was honor and offer.

      Then she’d shout: “The hell it was!”

      She had the nastiest cackle I’ve ever heard. And a tuburcular cough. But she loved her snuff.

    I am amused by the fact that both notes have same number of exclamation marks at the end. I mean how much neat picky one can be?

      Those Steven Seagal movies in the back are Marked for Death. So I guess only people with AIDS can buy them.

    So… if stealing from that store is like stealing from AIDS patients does that mean the store is incurably diseased and dying?

    Why would I want to steal from people with AIDS? Chances their lives are kinda suck and a lot of their money is going towards their meds . I’d much rather steal from happy, rich, healthy people who need to be brought down a peg or three.

      aaa,

      But the chances are high that the people with AIDS have much better taste. Let’s meet later on and compare the shit we got.

      True, true. I suppose it would be more convenient just to steal credit card information online and whatnot. I mean, the vast majority of identity thieves do get away with it and all.

    I went to a thrift store once and I was haggling over the price of a green pitcher when the woman I was haggling with says to me that the thrift store helps battered women by giving them jobs and I should just pay what they’re asking so I tell the bitch she hasn’t yet found the tone she wants to take with me but I’m about to teach her and teach her real good and she just falls to the ground assuming the fetal position, crying, don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me, in this really funny way…
    Ahhh, I love my green pitcher.

      That reminds me of the time I watched the children of beaten mothers while they (the moms) were in group therapy. I was asked to leave after the moms walk in on me entertaining the children with a “tactless” activty.

      In retrospect, inviting children to “beat the human-shaped piñata with a stick” probably wasn’t a good idea.

    How is the Spanish sign racist?? In San Diego there are large populations of both English and Spanish speaking people – if the sign was ONLY in Spanish I would see how it could be seen as racist – but by putting it in both English and Spanish they are basically saying “Hey – ALL San Diego residents whether Spanish or English speaking – DON’T F’ING STEAL FROM THIS SHOP! We’re only trying to raise money to support victims of AIDS” “vaguely racist”? Uptight much?! I guess anti-shoplifting signs posted in English and French in parts of Canada are racist as well? Nice one.

      Umm, maybe it is, maybe it isn’t, but the opening remark says this: “it’s the only sign in the store (among dozens) that’s en espanol.”

      I figure that in Canada it is not only the anti-shoplifting signs that are bilingual.

    Why is this ‘vaguely racist’? Does everything have to be about race? What about class and gender?

    You need the trifecta!!!
