Sign Sign Everywhere a Sign...

"Sign Sign everywhere a sign
Blocking out the scenery breaking my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?"

Pipes has been a sign making fool as of late. She has a new fascination with the type of sign that features the red circle with a slash through it and understands that this means no. I am now newly acquainted with every type of place you see these types of signs about town. I'm sure you saw that coming but I just felt the need to mention it anyway.

So she has been drawing these hilarious versions of the signs at home. She made one for the bathroom it says: No dogs on you. Bathroom. Means you. I was commanded asked to contribute my dog drawing expertise and drew a picture of a dog and Piper added a big red circle with a line through it and we posted it on the bathroom door. Piper is very satisfied and reads it aloud and quite loudly several times a day.

I'm not sure how dogs being on people in bathrooms offended her so much that it became outlawed round these here parts but you better not even think about it, there's a prohibitory sign!


  1. I certainly don't want dogs on me in the bathroom! Thanks for my first laugh of the day.

  2. maybe she's just showing good foresight. i can't personally think of a reason to outlaw this...but why wait for some dog/bathroom-related incident to take place? she's just being proactive, nipping it in the bud beforehand. quite thoughtful, that one.

    she might want to extent this red circle/slash warning to dingos. i've heard very bad things about dingos.
