Broken: No Parking sign

AjtsizedDaniel Drucker points us to this strange no parking sign:

"Loading zone. No parking. Except Monday - Sunday."


why is everything on that sign out of alignment?

Good thing that no one will needed to load on those days. Wonder is there is a huge fine if you do indeed load on those days. Stupidity abounds all over the world but why does it seem more prevelant in America???

Dragon: Because the picture was taken with a camera phone? I hope you're not suggesting it was photoshopped, because anyone trying to photoshop that would have done a better job.

obviously they added the EX and the DAY and that is why they are out of line. They must have meant to put EX Sat and Sun but they were too stupid to do it right.

I think it means that they get shipments on Saturday so one is not allowed to park there on that day, but it is not enforced on the other days of the week.

A little bit skeptical, aren't we, zakyam.

Unless... we're *supposed* to think it's too bad to be a Photoshop job! Argh! Broken wheels within broken wheels!

the 11pm is also out of alignment

i do not think that sign was made in a multi-million $ printing company. Someone just probably took a piece of metal spray-painted it white and they couldn' find templates all in the same size or the person who was makin it was a retarded baboon.

Either way it was poorly done, so many things mis aligned... and who abbreviates monday then doesnt abbreviate sunday? with Sun and Day not even aligned for that matter.

Posted by: Dragon at March 25, 2005 03:50 PM

I guess the rule is in effect 11 PM Sun. to 10 AM Mon.

Posted by: Reed at March 25, 2005 03:50 PM

I think it means that you can load there from 10 am Monday until 11 pm Sunday for no more than 30 minutes at a time.

Then, from 11:01 pm Sunday until 9:59 am Monday, you can basically do whatever you want, including ramming your sedan head-on into a strangely-undersized delivery truck.

Or maybe the arrow on the bottom is a clue that the sign's true meaning can be found in the tree in the background.

Obviously SHOPPED!!!!!! No way to (polite of all of you!!!) analyze it any other way.

Maybe the delivery truck was delivering new calendars with more days per week and new clocks that counted 30 minutes between 10 AM Monday and 11 PM Sunday, when it was rammed by the car and smashed into the tree. The calendars and clocks got stuck up in the tree. The sign says you can load calendars and clocks into your car or truck for 30 minutes only.

i agree, this was photoshopped. the mon-sun would be centered w/o the 'day' and 'ex', which throw it off.

There is no sign, when you relize this, you'll find out that its not the sign thats photoshopped, but yourself.

"There is no sign, when you relize this, you'll find out that its not the sign thats photoshopped, but yourself."

a broken post. If you realize there is no sign, then you cant even declare a non-existant sign photoshopped, thusly, since a photoshopping cannot be claimed.. the reverse cannot be true in the you are photoshop...

back on the topic.. i still think that sign is fake.

Posted by: Dragon at March 27, 2005 07:39 PM

Obviously a photoshop job. The 11 looks hand drawn.

You people are all ridiculous. Who died and made you all the broken police?

This site used to be fun, but it seems this is how it now works.

Some one posts something broken.

Then 20 people reply that it's not broken.

You know what's broken?

All of you.

Where is this sign located? Without knowing the actual location, and havign someone go there and verify that this sign does in fact exist, how are we supposed to know whether it's real or not?

Note to Mark Hurst: Do not accept submissions unless they have a verifiable location.

whattheheck, jay? must i include my actual name and address with every comment, too?

Posted by: Bob at March 28, 2005 08:16 PM

The sign is not photoshopped. It has been updated by the local government. It initially said "Except Sunday". Then the local council decided to allow unlimited parking on Mondays too. Instead of making a new sign, they just painted over the "Except" and added "Ex Mon-". Not a well thought-through change, but at least they were trying to save taxpayer dollars.

Is it bad im seeing pitures in that block of PHOTOSHOP! ?

Posted by: Picho at March 31, 2005 05:53 PM

Clearly, a delivery driver, who comes every saturday morning at around 10 a.m., was tired of not having anywhere to park, so he made a sign... it must be a very busy street.
