Earlier this month, we asked you Rooks to keep your eyes peeled for (handmade) warning signs—especially the outright hostile/vaguely aggro/unintentionally hilarious kind. Here’s what you spotted on the streets, in bathroom stalls, and on bedroom doors (sometimes your own):
This is an iPhone picture of a cute kinda “warning” sign I recently saw on the inside of a bathroom stall at my university. It’s the adorably awkward Undertale video game character Woshua, reminding you to “wosh u hand” after a trip to the bathroom. A great mood-lifter in a time of finals-induced megastress! —Victoria C., 18, Alberta, Canada
This is the sign on my door. It has been taped and re-taped up innumerable times over the past six months. It was inspired by a particular incident where Evan, my younger brother, decided to barge into my room while I was recording a song. As any handwriting analyst could probably tell you (and I assume it’s somewhat evident), I was pretty upset while writing the sign. Although slightly aggressive, this has proven effective. —Vera K.
I had to warn people at my local library about the Dutch version of The Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare. It’s absolutely fantastic and will ruin your life :) —Markha, 15, Belgium
Seen at Schokolake Chocolate Resort in Miaoli, Taiwan. —Dana C., 14, Taiwan
Spotted in New Zealand. —Dana C., 14, Taiwan
I love this sign outside a recreational tourist farm in New Zealand. —Dana C., 14, Taiwan
Spotted at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in NYC. —Alexis P., 18
