“I went to the grocery store. The sign said ‘no food or drink inside.’ So I went home”

Grocery stores often have a sign that says “No food or drink inside.” The sign means that customers shouldn’t bring food or drink inside the store, but it can be read the wrong way.

American comedian Kevin Schwartz of Madison, Wisconsin, told this joke on the television show America’s Got Talent on June 11, 2019:

“I went to the grocery store. The sign said ‘no food or drink inside.’ So I went home.”
