    Maybe I’m just thinking too hard, but there seems to be an influx of confusing sign’s and or directions lately

    To prove my case:

    Directions on a tube of toothpaste: "Brush teeth after every meal or at least twice a day"
    <img> <img> <img>

    Sign outside a Fazoli’s resteraunt: "Look what’s cooking Baked Spaghetti in our kitchen."

    Sign ouside the Pancake Ranch resteraunt/truck stop: "Help Wanted

    Catfish"

    This last one really has me confused. Do they need help with their catfish? Or do they need catfish to help them?

    And, not especially confusing, but fun nonetheless

    Sign at a carwash: "Help keep America beautiful, was your car regularly."

    Anybody else have run in’s?

    I’ve seen Engrish.com before, classic site.

    We’ve stopped using straight-forward "Men working" signs around here, now we get letters like "please be careful, because my mommy (daddy) is working here, Jimmy" signs. <img> Jimmy dear, I hate to break this to you, but your daddy is usually either talking, sitting on his ass, or curiously absent.
