“When one door closes, sometimes you want to get a hammer and nails to make sure that stays shut”

“When one door closes, another opens” is an old saying about an opportunity lost and one gained. A joke about ending a bad experience was posted on Twitter by CherrySlushie‏ on December 13, 2011:

“When one door closes, sometimes you want to get a hammer and nails to make sure that bitch stays shut.”

This jocular version has been printed on many images.

Aside from its food, Timsan’s is known for sardonic and ironic sayings on its signboard, such as “It’s too cold to change the sign” and “When one door closes ... get a hammer ... and nail it shut.”
