1795: "All You Can Eat"

Title-text: "After my absent-mindedness resulted in a bad posterboard-related stomachache, I learned to do the sign-making place last."

Even better than "Actual Size!" stickers. :)

A childhood spent walking while reading books has prepared me unexpectedly well for today's world.

At least the "All you can eat" sign on the tire shop covered their ill-considered "Blowout Sale" ad.

Here you go.

I wonder how often Randal posts these comics secretly hoping that someone will do what is depicted. I imagine it going something like "Wouldn't it be funny if... hmm... but that would technically be illegal... but I still want to see it happen..." and 2 hours later he posts a comic, which technically isn't inciting anybody to do anything...

The Actual Size sticker description leaves surprisingly little room for plausible deniability.
So much depends upon a red wheel barrow (>= XXII) but it is not going to be installed.

Is that the same artist as Cyanide & Happiness? Sure looks like the same style.

The "All you can eat pet store" made me think of Schlock from the webcomic Schlock Mercenary. He's been known to refer to kittens as "comfort food".

Can anyone make out the first two original names? The only one I can discern is "Kevin's Pet Store" (and, obviously, Lumber and Flooring Depot)

It's better than the "Fire Sale" sign at the sprinkler factory.
