Out: pink flamingos. In: headstones?

So…what is it about the Minnesota suburbs that makes the idea of killing someone’s pet the height of hilarity?

Here lies the last dog that shit in my yard

Here lies the last dog that pooped in my yard.

At least in Seattle they try to be a bit poetic about it.

Here lies cold and hard the last damn dog that shit in my yard

Unfortunately during meal service the balcony is a non-smoking area. We apologise for your slightly extended lifespan.

As Ed Hardy said, “Flushing kills slowly”

August 11th, 2014 · 67 comments

Our submitter says this note was posted in a Princeton University restroom by his coworker, who had become “completely obsessed with finding out who didn’t flush the urinal after using it.” After posting the note, he began to discreetly check the urinal every time he saw someone leave the restroom.

“Eventually he identified the culprit, and that individual was appropriately shunned,” says our submitter. “At least he kept his oath to God!”

New York City? Get a rope.

July 30th, 2014 · 76 comments

Our submitter just moved to a small town in South Dakota, and says that seeing this “edited” ad at a diner was the biggest culture shock she’s had yet! “As an art teacher,” she writes, “I was irritated that someone would try so hard to dissuade some kids from pursuing what sounds like a pretty cool experience.”

New York City? Get a rope.

My babies shouldn’t need to witness your shady antics!

July 23rd, 2014 · 140 comments

Due to some recent stressful events, Daniel in Brisbane recently started smoking cigarettes again after 10 years of going without. “To avoid embarassing questions from people I know, I take steps to avoid smelling like cigarette smoke,” he says — including leaving work and parking next to a rail line, on the opposite side of any residential buildings. (Admittedly, a wee bit shady.)

Well, somebody noticed. Daniel found this note on his windshield.

My babies shouldn't need to witness your shady antics!
