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.
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.
How Do You Say Bon Appetit in French?
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!
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.
Quick, Write it Down! We have detail; I repeat, we have detail!
The sign is true: no one wants a small taco. But what kind of taco? Chicken? Beef? Are there fish tacos? it doesn't really matter as long as it isn't small.
Maybe a proprietary mixture with just the right combo of rice, cheese, guacamole, and tomato? They are very clever at El Arroyo; this way, everyone will go for the large.
