If you live in a city in a city like I do, or a suburb, or any place where other people are nearby, chances are you’ve trained yourself to ignore the homemade signs posted around town. You’ve seen so many notices about yard sales or missing pets that you don’t even see them any more, freeing up your attention for more important things like looking at your phone, or thinking about looking at your phone.

These folks understood this. When it came time to make a sign of their own, they used their creativity to grab people’s attention. And today we honor their efforts.

Are they trying to offload a used sex swing at their garage sale? Or are they saying that if you visit their garage sale, they’ll get into a sex swing with you? Either way, they sound completely sane.
