If you want to lure customers into your restaurant, you will probably write a nice message on a board to showcase your mouthwatering food options. You could also just make a sign like this that will leave passers-by wholly puzzled. Perhaps the whole tactic behind making ludicrous signs like this one is to make people more curious, and then maybe, just maybe, they’ll come inside.
Of course, you’re not going to bring your hamster with you when you dine. Or perhaps it’s a marketing scheme, as most people will take a picture of this quirky sign and share it. At least, that’s how we got a glimpse of this sign that is supposedly all the way in the Philippines.
Philosophical Thoughts from El Arroyo
El Arroyo has some incredible signs that you'll see throughout this article, and this one gives the passer-by pause. The Austin-based restaurant has gone from dad puns to cheeky jokes, and now they give us something to really think about as we stop in to enjoy some of their food.
People must really like El Arroyo's food if they have this much time to think about what exactly clapping is and isn't, but we have to admit the sign brings up an interesting point. El Arroyo loves these kinds of things because, before you know it, you've been staring at the sign for an hour and need something to eat.
Deserves Another Look
At first glance, this sign looks like it's saying something quite mean about the food that the restaurant is serving. However, a smart combo of wordplay from another language and a nod to famous recording artist Snoop Dogg creates a restaurant name that is memorable, funny, and gets you hungry for some hot and tasty Vietnamese soup.
Creating a sign that not only talks about what kind of food you serve but brings a chuckle as well is a winner in our book, and with the addition of some bubble tea and other Vietnamese food, this small restaurant seems like a winner.
Quite the Let-Down
There are some people out there who cannot go a day without getting outside and grooving their way to a healthier body. Those people love their bodies, but everybody needs a day off once in a while. Of course, when a friend invites you to pie and lattes, and you end up at a yoga studio, it can be a letdown of epic proportions.
Pilates might not burn enough calories to give you the space to splurge, but nothing ever stops you from stopping in for a treat after working hard. Making it a habit, however, will reverse any calories you burn – remember, abs begin in the kitchen!
Happy Mother's Day!
El Arroyo is back again already with a sign that brings out a nervous laugh to plenty of students, young and old. We've all done it before – you're working hard on a math problem, and instead of calling out Mrs. Pike, or Mrs. Kirkcaldy, or Mrs. Ross, you call the woman mom. Poor her.
But at least she can take solace in the fact that they are at least a motherly figure for the kids in her class. This is the kind of sign that El Arroyo hopes will go viral and doesn't actually market much, but at least it's funny.
