Because I have a sick mind

There's a sign at work over a recycling bin that says:

WHITE
PAPER
ONLY

Every time I see it, I have Onionesque urges to alter it or add another sign. "Colored paper entrance around back" comes to mind, or just a simple penciling of "that's racist." Or maybe a more sophisticated approach, like taping up a photo of a sit-in. If I were feeling really ambitious (um, and if it weren't totally inappropriate to express potentially ambiguous messages about racism), I could Photoshop an image of Paper of Color marching on Washington.

In the lobby of my apartment building there is a sign that reads "Outgoing Mail Only."

I always wonder where the shy and introverted mail is supposed to go.

Dead-letter office?
