The bulletin boards at the first Five Guys in virginia (do they still have them inside?) used to be a gold mine of double entendres.

"I had five guys for lunch, and I've never been so satisfied!" and so on.

Whatever, the fact that people take shots at New York pizza poves the the point.

Once the rest of you figure out how to make pizza you need to get to work on roumanian steak sandwichs. But if that is too hard start with hot dogs and work your way up.

One day you will be ready to tackle bagels and knishes, but you have a long way to go.

I like the site. I'd already seen it a while ago and when I was in Yosemite recently I saw something that was similar. There's a temporary, one way bridge that requires you to stop for a while so that traffic on the opposite side may pass - therefore they installed this sign and the obvious sarcastic alteration occurred... Expect 15 minutes...

I worked for a few months in the office at an alumina [not aluminium] refinery. There were "motivationals" type safety signs everywhere, particularly in lunch rooms and on bathroom walls and inside bathroom stalls. Some quirky, some serious. Everywhere.

I was reading the paper one morning and saw a story about recent shark attacks with a rather stupid headline like DEATH LURKS BENEATH THE WAVES. So I cut out the DEATH LURKS part, went downstairs to the main bathroom and glued it to the inside-bottom of a green stall door.

It was in a perfect spot – it just drew your eyes to it. Something to contemplate while you're snapping off your morning loaf, in a Joker "not sure if serious" way. Very proud of that effort, I was.

Five Guys' is a pretty decent fast food style burger. From what I can tell, there's not a whole lot of that in NYC, other than Shake Shack, which you either have to wait in line for eternity, or trek way up town for. (NB: I have not been here that long, tips are welcome.)

That's because you're doing it wrong. The starch+fat+salt of the fries is intended to be the way you round out your meal after having the hamburger, not the thing you eat first.

And Americans wonder why they're all so fat!

Looking at this one, which I found moderately amusing, I suddenly realized that the buildings were almost certainly in New England. Google Street View to the rescue! I went through Cambridge, Somerville, and Boston, but didn't find any likely Arnold Street, Avenue, or Court. Then I thought I'd try Providence. I'm pretty sure the picture was taken here. The houses on the right all seem to match, and so does the green and yellow fire hydrant. Unfortunately, the sign is gone.

At my workplace, posters were put up in the bathrooms in the lead-in to winter trying to limit the impact of colds urging us to wash our hands and to consider staying home if we were sick and so on. They even had a snazzy rhyming slogan - 'coughs and sneeze spread diseases'. Unfortunately, they also have a picture of a dust mite for some reason (confused graphic designer perhaps), so if anyone has ideas for witty ripostes, I may 'amend' a few.

There was also a sign a while back for a construction company that was doing some work around the place. The name of the company, 'Hooker Cockram' made my inner 13 year old giggle.

Lately I've been finding that the Five Guys in northern VA have really been phoning it in on the fries. The burgers are above-average-by-fast-food-standards as always (which is often exactly what I'm looking for), but they accompany them with an ocean of soggy, lukewarm potato corpses. It used to be quantity and (relative) quality, now it's just an annoying maze I have to wade through to find my burger.

That's not a quirk - it's how Five Guys works everywhere. One order of fries is enough for two people. A large is enough for four. If you're trying to eat there by yourself you either give/throw half your fries away or resign yourself to heart disease.
