You know that thing you do with the fortunes in Chinese fortune cookies? Where whatever it says, you add "between the sheets" and it becomes hilarious? Like the cooky says "You will have a hard time of it" and all of a sudden it's funny?
Well, all I did was look at each of these signs in turn, and every time the sign used the word "smoke," or "cigarette," I substituted the word "fart." And it worked great! I feel so much happier now!
