Submitted by: Da Yoopers Tourist Trap. Ishpeming, MI via Oddly Specific

I’ve been here and this sign does actually exist. I don’t know if there’s really an alligator in the basement, but I wouldn’t put it past these guys.

    The final line is encouraging kids. Street language gets them going right away.

    Made me think of Futurama for a bit.
    It’s not an alligator,it’s a crocodile.

    Always been a fan of, “unattended children will be sold to the circus,” myself.

  13. amethyst42 says:

    In a local toy store there’s a sign which reads “Unattended children will be given espresso and a puppy”

  14. poco says:

    I’m posting this at work. Seriously.

  15. Jessi says:

    amethyst42, the managers office where work has that same sign: “Unattended children will be given an espresso and a free puppy”.

    It’s even funnier considering I work at a pet store. Unfortunately, corporate won’t allow us to display the sign in our front window….

    In a tatto shop I worked at we had a sign saying “Unattended children will be tattooed and given a job.”

    Pretty sure my favorite comment is the one by JayTee.

  21. Kim says:

    You’re forgetting the best part! They actually used “da!” Crazy UPers… 😛

  22. Me says:

    In the fabric store where I worked we used to tell kids who opened the doors under the table (where the empty bolt cartridges went) that there were alligators in there. It used to scare the crap out of them.

  23. Megan says:

    I’ve been to this place numerous times on my forages through the UP. All I can say is that although I didn’t see this exact sign, I am completely not surprised. 😀

  24. G. James says:

    Why would the district attorney keep Jim’s pet alligator in his basement?

  25. Ley says:

    Haha, I live in the UP, and my step dad used to threaten to do that to me when I was bad.
    I was terrified of that place.

  26. JimJam says:

    If you want to be grouchy and slow and complain about the prices of everything, then I will duct tape you to the air condition vent above the alligator pit in Jim- the “head” guy- Decaire’s basement.

    How about, “Misbehaving or unattended children will be sold to large pharmaceutical companies for medical experimentation.”
