Don’t you just love a good old play on words? We get that this sign is inspired by the phrase, “your car ran over my dog.” But this reinterpretation has got us thinking up all kinds of theories. Call us crazy, but we feel like this sign is a cheeky conservative dig at Eastern philosophy.
Some people just can’t get over the fact that Americans enjoy yoga, perform transcendental meditation, choose a vegan diet, and believe in reincarnation. This sign is kind of a microcosm of the religious intolerance that is present all over America. The fact that they’re covered in red, white, and blue only adds to the drama.
You know you have problems when you are struggling to buy the materials to create signs for the protest you are attending. This guy made the point very clear that he just was not getting paid enough for the hard work he was putting into his job. Financial injustice is rife throughout the United States of America, and the world, in general.
People are literally saving lives for peanuts. So it’s no wonder that eventually, they will take to the streets and complain about it. But you know that something’s wrong when you can’t even afford the sign you are using to protest with.
Looks Like Somebody Didn't Call
When Grandma is not happy, nobody is happy. Whatever happened to make this matriarch take up her sign and join the protest must have been pretty bad. Did the store run out of Werther's Originals? That would get us pretty upset, too.
Grandmas have seen a lot of what the world has to offer, which means most things won't get their dander up very much, but it looks like this grandma has snapped, grabbed her best piece of posterboard, her sturdiest ruler, and taken to the streets. This is even one of those handy signs that G'ma can take anywhere.
I Put a Spell on You
During a student protest against tuition fees, a student held up this sign to make their point. We don’t know exactly how the point being made is connected to the main message of the protest. But it sure did get a laugh out of the rest of the protesters.
We keep looking over this sign trying to figure out if there is an actual spelling error or not after the joke that was used. It is a good point, though – you actually can’t use spellcheck on something that’s handwritten. Let us know if we missed anything – it’s really driving us crazy at this point.
This Sign Is on Fire
The following protest sign definitely works two-fold when you think about it. At this protest in Germany, a local used the classic phrase “Make Love, Not War” and flipped it to refer to the overuse of non-renewable energy sources such as oil. Instead, she refers to burning fat, as in performing exercise in order to stay fit and lose weight.
While the two things aren’t exactly related, she still manages to get her point across that we should be focusing more on renewable energy like air, water, and sunlight. Now that is the kind of play on words that we can truly get behind.
