Remove Children

I went to the Whole Foods Market in downtown Minneapolis with my sister this past weekend, and I have a random tidbit from that trip I’d like to share…

Maybe I was already in a silly mood, as is quite often the case whenever I’m with my sister, or maybe it’s just my odd sense of humor, but this sign struck me as so funny when I saw it atop an escalator, and I made my sister take a picture of it with her phone…


The funniest part about it was that the sign was animated, and there was just something about watching the stick-figure parent repeatedly taking the stick-figure child out of the cart that tickled my funny bone in a special way.  Yeah… it doesn’t take much, I’m often easily amused.  😉

Or maybe it was because it said “remove children” and that just sounded so dang funny to me for some reason.  Still does.  And who knew there was even such a thing as an escalator for shopping carts?  I sure didn’t.  But perhaps the more important question here is… who would need to be instructed to remove their child before sending their cart down in such a contraption?

Although… I do have to admit, it did sort of remind me a bit of an amusement park ride, and part of me wanted to take a little ride down it myself.  Of course, I’m much too big to fit into the child seat of the cart, otherwise, who knows… I just may have been tempted to give it a try.

After all…


I have been known to do strange and unusual things where other stick-figure instructions are concerned…


Can’t remove the child in me!  😀


Hope you have a wonderful day, and may you come across random things that amuse you too…

  15. Too funny! I would get the giggles over a sign like that too. Some of the pictures that go along with the instructions on signs are hilarious. Although not as funny as the mental picture of you riding the cart down the escalator! 🙂
