Competitive Sign Spinning is a Thing

I never saw these dudes before that stand on street corners to try and cajole you into a business by holding a sign with an arrow.

I see them everywhere now. The people seem to exude a certain level of mandatory excitement, but that’s about it.

I don’t see any real effort being made to be a world class competitor!!! Lazy bastids. Don’t they want to try and make something of themselves?

Competitive sign spinning will be in the next Olympics, I am sure of it.

  1. You have to hand it to these pimply faced Snowflakes for making it about their talent, and not my business. From now on these boards won’t weigh less than 50 pounds, and they can carry the batteries for the lights.

  2. Buffy: “I gotta degree in Gender Studies and Sign Spinning”

    Biff: I think you might be able to make money with one of those…
    I’d keep working on yer moves if I wuz you!

  3. I see them along the busy streets daily advertising for businesses in the strip malls. “Haircuts $12.00” etc, some dressed in bizarre costumes. Now they’ve decided to compete for who’s the most talented at their dead end job. Must be college grads.

  4. It seems every decade there’s some fad that when people look back they’ll say, “Remember the …? when people did such-and-such?”
    “Yeah, that was stupid.”

  5. Try as I might, I cannot remember a time in my life where I was driving along and said to myself, “Hey! Look at that guy spin that sign! I’m going to make a u-turn and go buy something.”

  6. Dr. Tar,
    Got any Spooky or Sci Fi or Hi Fi in the hopper?
    Or Ancient Fables with woodwork too

  7. When I see them on the streets spinning signs it makes me think that their business is in dire straits.
