This sign was placed at the beginning of this post as a warning to the stupid. Note the word WARNING strategically placed at the top of the sign and presented to all in the accepted color of caution signs everywhere. (Hint: If you just looked at this and said, "huh"? Go away, these aren't the droids you're looking for.)

I wanted to scream at each one individually:
I wonder if I can wear that shirt to work tomorrow. After all, it is casual Friday.
