I don’t want to oversell this, but the following series of three signs (sent in by a health-club patron who wishes to remain nameless) just became my new all-time favorite. I love so many things about Richard G. Sells’s first masterpiece (below) that I don’t even know where to begin.

While I was taking these photos a man in a lawn chair was either yelling at me to stop or trying to sell me a ratty old suitcase.
