Back in my old Brooklyn neighborhood yesterday, which boasts both the McSweeney's store AND the Park Slope Food Coop. At the coop, a sign at the register used to read: "If you are in a hurry, you are in the wrong place." The McSweeney's store, of course, did nothing so non-ironic as post actual hours of operation. Instead, there was a sign with various graphic symbols. Dave, I loved your book, but sometimes you take your design training/outsider status/mega-million movie book deal thing a little too far.

My favorite sign was actually chalked on the sidewalk: "Marxist Stoop Sale," it read. Unfortunately, I'd missed it.
