How’d you know it was me?
Probably would have been even more funny if they had spelled “just” correctly, but oh well.
It’s in northern Minnesota. They use a lot of Scandinavian talk like “yust” for just.
Yust….WTF is Yust. I get the joke, but come on if you’re going to go to the effort of making a stupid sign to improve your business then you should spell check it…….on the other hand you may have done that on purpose to include the OCD drivers in which case this is a brilliant piece of marketing. Well done.
I’m going to guess the “Yust” spelling is to represent the pronunciation in the local dialect. Finnglish?
Generally… Speaking as a Minnesotan – Minnesota has a large number of Swedish, Finnish, Norwegian, German and upper Northern European immigrant ancestry. The Yust is a play on such northern dialects. Look up some Ole’ and Lena jokes for examples.
Forgot to mention Scandinavia and a number of other countries too! Sorry.
to griffinlady: Scandinavia is not a country; it is a region which includes some of the countries you already mentioned. Also, you misspelled “border”.
I’m more curious as to where this sign is.
jenkins minnesota. lotsa scandinavians. “yust” like me 🙂
Just + Yuk = Yust. A way to express the yucky factor.
There are tons of these all over the Midwest. After a while, you just stop finding them funny.
don’t you mean you yust stop finding them funny?
Much like the cum and go’s near Fargo, and the “toe” truck signs along the boarder.
A sign with a single minor typo in otherwise correct English that wasn’t retardedly posted in EngrishFunny, for once!
Redneck, A-Pine Express is located in Jenkins, Minnesota. Roughly halfway betwixt Fargo and Duluth.
Thanks Kb, I write travel logs of alot of small towns and backwaters that folks like to read, and some like the little odd-ball signs here and there, so I always try and keep note of where they’re located for when I actually pass through an area.
The letter J is by Y on the keyboard
No it’s not. But your B is next to your O.
Roll down the window! ROLL DOWN THE WINDOW!! *gag*
You can see the sign over on google, so its been there quite some time.

Looks like the old A-frame Log Cabin restaurant is a good stop for eating, so that’d likely explain the gas 😉
The A-Pine Express is a restaurant in Pequot, MN. They cater, too, evidently. And they can tell yas aaaalll about Paul Bunyan.
Does anyone ever read the comments before them??
‘Yust’ is ‘just’ in Scandinavian .
LAWLZ! I was just there last week, and I was gonna take a pic!! XD
I`m wondering if they spelled “just” wrong,or forgot the “of” and spelled “must” wrong.
Oh for the love of…
*Your Mother* expects too much of people!
Oh man. I used to pass this stupid stupid sign everyday. It’s a really tacky play on words to get you to stop and buy gasoline. The A-Pine restaurant itself is AWFUL.
You Yust Passed it. Yust now.
This is actually in Yenkins, MN.
I seriously passed gas before I scrolled down to this pic….how did it know?
So, I live here. It isn’t misspelled, it’s supposed to be funny, but it’s not. I admit it would be funnier if people weren’t distracted by the “yust” however, I have on occasion really passed gas whilst driving by the A-Pine. that’s always funny.
