Ok this is too funny! I thought the "bring your wife" one was the best, but then the "elephant stay in the car one" popped up...they are ALL funny though! I should copy/paste this because I know some people who will really like it.

Just remembered something...re: the "If you can't read" one, in NYC they had ads on the subway and stuff that said "If you can't read English, we can help...". I guess probably people who had relatives or friends that needed help passed the message on. ?

Yeah, I would imagine so.

Not sure why, but your comment reminded me that one of the few words I always stumble on when saying out loud is "literacy" and the fact that I'm quite literate but just can't say it has always struck me as pretty funny. ;)
