you’d be amazed how many times people ask me what this sign means. and a lot of these people aren’t blondes.
this is sign means exactly what it says. exactly. it’s called physics, people. real science. if something isn’t wet, it’s dry. if something is dry, it isn’t wet, is it? no.
so, why is this funny street sign so complicated? i’ve come up with two answers.
a) people like to make things more difficult than they really are.
2) people are dumber than i give them credit for.
that Durtbagz sign exists to make fun of all the street signs out there that state the obvious. like, road wet when raining or slick when icy. are those signs hard to understand? no. are they funny? yep. at least, to those who have half a brain. which leads me to the second reason people don’t get this sign.
people are dumb.
when i do events like first friday’s in downtown phoenix or street festivals, i get to see, first-hand, peoples’ reactions to durtbagz. it’s incredible.
half of the people that come by, point and laugh. these people, i like to call, brilliant.
the other 50% look at it with this horribly confused look, which then turns to disgust and then their gaze lands on me. and i just give them a big grin and then they walk on to the booth next to me, selling bedazzeled denim purses and buy four of them.
i’m amazed at the level of stupidity the general population has hit.
let me clarify something: i don’t think you’re stupid if you don’t think durtbagz are funny. my sense of humor is not for everyone. i do think you’re stupid if you don’t even get it enough to decide whether it’s funny or not.
so, when someone asks me what my shirt means, i’ll reply, “it is what it is.” either they start laughing because they realize how silly they look.
or they read it outloud. again. as a question. and just stare at me.
in cases like this, i either a) just stare back, b) answer “what is ‘true’?”, or c) direct them to the nearest ed hardy store.
what are some responses you’d give to these people?
