I startled it!
Aww. Poor door.
Maybe someone wanted to rape her?
I would have been even snarkier and extreme-left aligned the hand written sign too.
There’s a Neil Gaimen joke in here somewhere (all right, I’m rereading “Neverwhere”) but I’m just not coming up with it…
there there, door. there there. (just think of Queen and Country.)
I’m willing to know why the poor door is so alarmed…
Ugh, I saw one of these doors, had the same(ish) idea, but no paper or pens in sight >.<
Man, I used to ask myself that very same question every time I passed such a sign.
ellis has startled the door.
lol no- Zoey! XD
It’s just upset it didn’t win the door prize.
True story. I once accidentally set of the burglar alarm at an office building I was working at. I called the alarm monitoring service. They said. “We will send an alarmist over to turn it off.”
Guys… what it actually means is that there’s an alarm connected to the door. If you open it, an alarm will go off making loud noises.
you are the reason why nobody likes canadians
I saw this joke at Universal Studios in Florida over holiday. It was in the Muppet section – “This door is alarmed, and genuinely concerned!”
i bet METH is behind this closed door..
I am pretty sure that is apparent to everyone. Way to go Mr. Obvious.
My family used to have a car when I was a kid that that said “the door is ajar”, in this annoying female computer voice, whenever the door was open. We used to repond to it: “no, it’s not a jar, it’s a door!”
It came unhinged.
I am not at all surprised that Canadian made that comment. It’s the funniest one.
/!\ You have startled the door!
This made my day! I see funny signs all the time, I should start taking pictures of them.
Should I also be alarmed? What does the door know that I don’t?
Pretty funny. But this is actually an old joke from a Benny Hill sketch. Nice to see someone still remembers it though.
Every time I see this sign on doors (very frequently, where I live) I think of it being surprised, scared, etc. Such a silly phrase!
The asians at my lab put a sign on the door that said “Keep Door Close”. So I wrote under it “And your enemies even closer”. The department head was not amused.
What’s funnier is someone took the time to write the other sign.
It is not alarmed. It’s pleasantly surprised.
Maybe I should move to Canada.

I do not know why, but i think that the capitalized “I” on Is is odd. Or is it just me?
It got knocked up.
who’s benny hill? and how does he know this door is alarmed?
Sorry to go off subject here (I like the sign – it should be engraved on the door), but….Benny Hill for California Governor 2010, maybe Congress, what about President??
ZOEY STARTLED THE DOOR.
awesome love it
Stumbled from Connecticut
It did’nt get it’s daily ” knob job “.
I’M SO STARTLED!
Hey Canadian, thanks for making us look like a bunch of igloo dwelling retards. I apologize on his behalf folks, he must be a Newfie.
One of the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation’s latest releases, I suspect.
Original….thats an old Benny Hill joke. =/
610. The correct answer was By what? subtler, ergo funnier.
gayer than u guys.
Passer-by startled it.
someone must have told it that there are people who take Sarah Palin seriously.
Swift to chide and slow to bless — can someone suggest a re-wording that conveys the same message as clearly in as few words? After all, people won’t read signs with lots of small type on them, even for their own good (see cigarette labels).
every time I see this sign i get sad because all the doors here just say “EMERGENCY EXIT ONLY: Alarm Will Sound” and this joke will never work for them 😦
I’m with rawwwrr on that one. But yeah, snarky replies to stuff like this is always fun, even if it is a joke someone else made first.
Probably all of those people hitting on it all day and all night.
the fashion to make verbs of nouns is really getting out of hand and deserves retaliatory comments like the one shown in the pic
What startled it? Answer: Chuck Norris!
