So when my friend Laurel sent me an "Ironic Sign" offering from the Huffington Post, I was pleased to find an old friend among them. I'd seen the picture before in Smashing Magazine and saved it thinking that it's subject had a healthy dose of piratitude. So when Laurel's email jogged my memory, I thought I'd share:
The funny is there, of course, but it's the photography that makes this one brilliant. It wouldn't have half the impact if the seagull on the sign wasn't outlined exactly like the seagull on the sign. Like so many others who have gone to sea, this guy doesn't care about society's rules. Or their signs, for that matter.
Happy Friday, Brethren. Sailor Mouth Saturday will be up unusually early tomorrow. Bring your coffee.
