Our submitter in Denver says his buddy snapped a photo of this notice while she was getting her new military ID. Adds our submitter: “I’ve had success getting a picture retaken at the DMV, but bad photos at the military ID office are usually considered a ‘personal problem.’”

NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS!!!!  THIS CAMERA WAS SPECIALLY MADE NOT TO TAKE UGLY PICTURES. ALL I CAN SUGGEST IF YOU HAVE A COMPLAINT ABOUT YOUR PHOTOGRAPH IS THAT YOU BRING IN A BETTER FACE FOR YOUR PICTURE.

Happy Veterans Day, folks!

In this kitchen, please feel free to] pour drinks, cut up food, warm things through, stir and mix food, chop food up into ridiculously small pieces, taste whatever you like and eat until you are well satisfied and utterly sated. BUT [the Hebrew slang originating from the Arabic equivalent of "for fuck's sake,"] do it quietly!

Adds our submitter: “Presumably, noise is a problem — I was just tickled by how much I was permitted to do, as long as I kept my mouth shut.”

Meanwhile, elsewhere in the Middle East, the U.S. Armed forces aren’t quite so “anything goes.” Except, apparently, when it comes to shitting in the shower.
