DO NOT DISTURB SIGN

With vacation season approaching, now seems like a good time to share this nifty, vintage Do Not Disturb sign from some nifty, vintage Holiday Inn. Click on the image above for a high-res version. Print it, cut it out, tape the pieces together and place your new creation on your favorite doorknob. Soon you'll experience a deep, restful, disturbance-free slumber— the same way folks slept many decades ago. You'll sleep so hard your Z's will be backwards.
Once rested, face the "Maid" side out for a comic effect. You don't have a maid; and that's why it's funny. Or if you do have one, the sign may prove to be quite helpful. Either way, you won't find an easier "papercraft" project. Enjoy.

(Thanks Todd!)

I suppose that the sign is supposed to be hanging on the guy's big toe, but it looks way too much like a penis. :goatse:

moremeatperinch- I thought the very same thing (heh, I'm going to get a new breed of visitor now that 'penis' and 'goatse' are among the terms on my site.)

geary- speaking of which there's a new Wackys book coming out. Aw, I just need to go ahead and post about it...

frozen- totally. though I wonder why they printed the sleeping guy side hot colors and the maid in cool. Those tricky Holiday Inn designers.
