Like everything else, food and table manners differ from nation to nation. The French consider Coca-Cola – American Champagne, and we still don’t get the whole idea behind the charcuterie. And this sign explained it all.
So, next time you’re in a French restaurant, and you see the word charcuterie on the menu, remember. It’s basically samples of color-coordinated cold cuts arranged neatly on a wooden board. Thank you, bring us a double!
Please Just Tell us About the Food
So, there's this famous song called "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-A-Lot, with the lyrics, "my anaconda don't want none unless you got buns, hun."
El Arroyo decided to spin the words a bit, it's a feeble attempt, but we like that they're trying. We suggest every week, the restaurant's staff have a vote on which song should be on the sign next.
Choose Your Opponent
The choice is a classic one: one, single, solitary horse-sized duck? Or 100 duck-sized horses? Are they working as a team? Are the animals aware they're at a different size than they should be?
Do you have any idea how many people would like to have a duck-sized horse? Heck, I'd be fine with a horse-sized duck. El Arroyo has raised these questions and more.
The Title of this Sign is "Trying Too Hard"
El Arroyo has put up some zingers, but this one doesn't pass the test. Yeah, the pun is there – the mean of a set of numbers is a synonym for an average – but it's so obvious any eighth grader can see the punchline coming from a worksheet away.
It will get a laugh from kids who think they're privy to some kind of FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE about math, but most people will just roll their eyes.
How Dare They
El Arroyo is wishing us a "happy whatever doesn't offend you," which is really a way to get the passersby to notice instead of actually wishing a happy "whatever."
To get them trending. They're like...a stamped ticket. You show your friends a picture of the most recent sign, and they know you've been out on the town.
