Think of a doormat as your personal, free-of-charge billboard aimed at your target group—beloved friends, family members, delivery couriers, neighbors and whatnot.

You can use it however you want: most of us just pass on the opportunity, while others use it to the max. And by max, I mean getting the most insanely creative doormat to make your guest’s jaw drop before you open the door.

And to show you what kind of power a good, like really good, doormat has to put smiles on people’s faces, Bored Panda compiled a selection of the most ingenious, hilarious, and unusual ones. So that we know not every mat has to be as boring as that good old “Welcome” one that was laying on the floor long before you started renting the place. Psst! Part 1 of the doormats awaits by the corner.

You could just put a plain old boring doormat by your entrance and call it a day. In fact, you probably did so, and me too. But what if it’s a missed opportunity to get your visitors talking? To bring a smile to the postman’s face? To make the courier’s day? To say something weirdly hilarious without uttering a word?

I mean, if you have to put something out for you and your guests to wipe their shoes on before they enter your home, so why not have some fun with it? And there’s a world bigger than our own full of charming, funny, snarky puns and messages to bring some fun back to your doorstep.

Ask not what your dog can do for you, but what you can do for your dog!

Some messages may sound borderline awkward, like “I hope you told us you’re coming over,” “Definitely Not A Trap Door,” and “We Are Probably Pretending Not To Be Home.” Other pun ideas include “As seen in MTV cribs,” “Nice shoes,” and “All Peopled Out.” 

Whatever you opt for, think of it as a great way to open the conversation, a perfect place to put a lighthearted pun and try it out! These days when half of the world is spending more time in the comfort of their homes, one should not miss a chance to put a smile on our tired faces.

Cat's log, Day 761: My captors are evil. They brought out the ultimate torture device. It is an object that shines a red dot. I lose all control when I see this dot. I never knew the humans could ever master mind control. Yet, here we are. However, there is hope for me. I am working on subsequent world domination. This is even better than peeing in their shoes.
