A jocular supermarket store sign has been printed on many images:

“Store Tip!!!
‘Accidentally’ buy the potato chips your spouse doesn’t like so you don’t have to share.”

EAST LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A local blogger is taking credit for some quirky signs that appeared at a Vons grocery store in East L.A.

Jeff Wysaski says on his Tumblr account “Obvious Plant” that he tagged the aisles with shopping tips, including food-related pick-up lines and other ways to play with your food.

One such gem: “‘Accidentally’ buy the potato chips your spouse doesn’t like so you don’t have to share.”

Some signs were downright clever, like “Animal hospital, we love pets, we shih tzu not.” And some were informative, like this sign at a grocery store: “Accidentally buy the potato chips your spouse doesn’t like so you don’t have to share.”
