As a compulsive photographer of odd signs, I have to say that "Brid" (origin unknown) has it all. It's the implied story I love:
Bob: Aw, jeez, you're kidding. "Brid?" Who made these things? Fine. I'll just put 'em out for $1.19.
Customer 1: Hey, did you see this? This bucket says "brid!" That's pretty funny! I bet they meant "bird," right?
Bob: Yes, sir, I expect they did.
Customer 2: Excuse me, but there's a spelling error on this product.
Bob: Yes, ma'am, we know. That's why it's on sale.
Customer 2: Only it's spelled "bird," not "brid."
Bob: Thank you, ma'am.
Customer 3: Sir? Sir? Do you sell any brid food to go in this brid bucket?
Bob: Very funny, sir.
Customer 3,487: BRID! What kinda idiots are you people anyway? Can't you spell?
Bob: We don't make the products, sir. We just sell them.
[Bob fires up the laser-printer, amends sign]

“Stephen Colbert” is a character that was once played by Stephen Colbert: a right-wing blowhard pundit who called Bill O’Reilly “Papa Bear.” When Colbert took over the Late Show, the “Stephen Colbert” character disappeared (possibly because Viacom claimed the rights to it!), but now and again, he reappears.
You know the drill. You go to the dentist and they ask you how often you floss. You lie through your teeth and say, “every day!” (Bonus points if you have some cilantro or chives stuck in your gums from lunch). You don’t want to keep up the charade any longer, but rubbing that tiny strand […]
The Raspberry Pi Foundation has done outstanding work packing a fully capable desktop computer into a package the size of a deck cards—especially one that only costs $35. But if you already have a working laptop, why should you care? Oh, how much you have to learn. Besides operating well as a compact digital media hub, […]
Custom coffee vessels are the perfect piece of office flair, but it’s just a matter of time before your VOTE FOR PEDRO mug will start to lose its relevant wit. Why not have a new one every day, with whatever silly nonsense you want sticking off the sides? You can save big on your novelty […]
