Who needs a traditional ‘Beware of Dog’ sign when you have a half-eaten doormat that screams “fierce defender”? The warning is crystal clear, but it’s not just because of its message – it’s all about the awesome presentation. It’s a fine example of effective messaging with a dash of comedic flair!
Visitors approaching find a half-chewed corner, an homage to playful, maybe grumpy dogs inside (there’s no way to say which!) who couldn’t resist a little bite. Just a taste of that delicious-looking corner! What lies behind that door? A ferocious German Shephard? A puppy teething? There’s no point risking it. Tread carefully, all that enter.
A Set of Stringent Criteria
The person who owns this doormat knows exactly what she wants. Some delicious pie, topped with meat, cheese, and sauce? Come on in. The company that she buys everything from, even if she doesn't need it, and maybe even if she can't afford it? The door's wide open.
A Hollywood star that is known to be one of the most handsome and most charming men on the planet, who just so happens to show up at her front door, soaked to the bone in a rainstorm and needing somewhere to change into fresh clothes and warm-up? She'll probably let you in. Especially if you have a pizza!
The Perfect Combination
There are a couple of different ways to interpret this chuckle-worthy doormat. The first is that when the owner walks through the front door, he or she embraces his or her real personality, letting it all hang out and saying exactly what needs to be said, right when it needs to be said.
A second interpretation is that the “Me” is the breadwinner, and the “Ho” is the person who is at home during the working day, and once the workday is over, the two come together to enjoy each other's company and celebrate being able to spend time together.
Not Just For Cops
Prepare to be amused and warned in one fell swoop. No uninvited guests allowed! Warrant or not, nobody is getting in. Burglars, solicitors, and even the neighborhood kids scouting for candy on Halloween – all get the same message: this house is off-limits. In an increasingly paranoid world, it’s good to be able to laugh at this.
But beyond the sass, the doormat is a gentle reminder to respect someone’s privacy and property. Visitors approaching this door will either burst out laughing or quickly assure you they've come with the best intentions. Either way, you’re in for an entertaining visit!
Look, sometimes you just can not handle people. This is a good doormat to create some much-needed personal space. And let's face it. It's important to be honest with people in life. It's no good simply welcoming people into your home when deep down, you really don't want to be hospitable right now.
And it's not fair on them either if you're not in the mood. So it's best for everyone if a doormat like this stares the visitor flat in the face. We don't know what the case might be here. Maybe it is just a seasonal thing. Maybe they'll switch the doormat for another one that says "come in" when the summer comes around.
