NEW YORK — Trying to figure out how this sign at LaGuardia Airport came to be. There are so many theories. It’s a shame I had to pick just one:
Sign designer: Well, what do you think?
Airport official: I feel like it’s missing something.
Designer: What exactly are you thinking?
Official: It’s just not convincing enough. We really need to drive home the point.
Designer: An arrow and big yellow letters that read “Pet Relief.” That doesn’t drive home the point?
Official: I just want to make sure there’s no way to miss the message.
Designer: Maybe, we can add a drawing like this.
Official: Ah, yes, a man walking his dog. I like it. I like it.
Designer: Cool. So, we’re good then?
Official: Well, I feel like it could use one more thing, something to really seal the deal.
Designer: What could possibly be missing?
Official: Think we could draw it so the man’s holding a bag of dog shit?
