"Please don't FUCK the pigeons." You'll never look at signs the same way again.

This is fun stuff, because juvenile things are fun. This could also work with stickers that say "Gay." A bumper sticker that says "Texas Pride" would be improved with "Gay" in place of either word, for example.

One of my favorite childhood endeavors was stickering over people's bumper stickers. Thanks to the National Lampoon, I had a FAT stack of round stickers adorned with a picture of a screw on them.

Everywhere you'd look, someone'd have a bumper sticker that said 'I (heart) My Dog' or 'I (heart) My Kids'. My juvenile stickering campaign was the stuff of legends.

Good times, good times. Although this guy's a little more blunt, it's the same spirit, and I'm in. I've placed my order already!

I say again, Obscenity is the crutch of the inarticulate.

That doesn't make it any less funny.

Obscenity may be a crutch for the inarticulate, but Obscenity is also moonshoes for the eloquent.

Time to merge this thread with the "Anal [car_model]" thread.

billy sumday, that about sums up my thinking on this as well. This reminds me of my brother and his "Fashion Violation" ink stamp he liked to deface magazines with.

And then it also reminds me of the joke sticker that people could put over the heart, it was a screw or an eightball so the new bumper sticker would read "I ate my dog" or "I screwed my dog". Mildly funny for a moment and then slightly embarassing.

fenriq, you mean like the screw-sticker davelog spoke of?
posted by dabitch at 2:57 PM on July 19, 2005


That site doesn't make too much fucking sense. Then again perhaps that's because they have too few fucking signs.

The allure of using the word "fuck" all the time tends to go away after one reaches the age of majority... after that it's kept for special fucking occasions, isn't it.

If it's inarticulate to use some of the most storied, colorful, and history-full words in the language, then fuck yeah, you go ahead and call me inarticulate.

(climbing joke: the higher you get, the more parts of speech 'fuck' can occupy. Thus, at the top, you say of your ice axe: "this fucking fucker is fucking fucked" rather than "this axe is broken.")

I'm smart enough to know the taboo only has the power you give it. I heart fuck profanity.

The website was mildly amusing, but kind of short. And I'd feel pretty leery buying the book. How'd that book get published anyway?

Thanks, bk. (How about some fuckin' tags next time?)

List of films ordered by uses of the word fuck:
Casino has the most with 422; Fubar has the most fucks per minute (274 fucks in 76 minutes, or 3.60 fucks/min).

I recently watched Casino while staying at a really cheap and sleazy hotel in Downtown Las Vegas. Unfortunately it was on the USA network which edits movies to be more "family friendly." Somehow something was lost when Joe Pesci said "Freak you! You freaking freak!"

fucking great.

and so much more subtley subversive than a column that i wrote in my college paper that started off "Fuck Fuck Fuck" [self-link]

On the upside, you have your virginity back and once again will find the superbowl half-time show and national geographic magazine titillating.

"Please don't FUCK the pigeons."

in boston at the orange line in back bay there are a series of signs all in a row that read 'Please do not feed the Pigeons.' some clever person spray-painted the word 'caviar' at the bottom of the last sign. that sign now reads 'Please do not feed the Pigeons caviar.' i thought that was funny.

That was funny. The use of the word "fuck" isn't inarticulate in this context. It's subversive.

Don't argue with me.

That reminds me of some serial-sign modifier in San Diego many, many years ago. All of the restrooms at restaurants have the "Wash your hands!" signs, and underneath, they say "Lavese sus manos", for our Spanish speaking friends. Someone modified a *lot* of them to say "Lavese sus manos and his 13 piece orchestra!!" I don't know why I found that so hilarious in my teenage years, but I was always so happy when I saw that.

Along the lines of davelog, brandz, and Swervo's comments, while it doesn't have the subversive obscenity of the linked site, this sign I ran across a few months ago was one of my favorite pieces of random graffiti:

TAXIdermist CrABS lONeLY, Seattle, WA

_Far_ more creative than most efforts I see.
