A restaurant in Texas is making its customers and the internet laugh out loud. El Arroyo is putting up hilarious and witty signs to draw attention and bring smiles to people’s faces, and we’ve collected some of the very best ones.

So scroll down, have a good laugh, and upvote your faves. Don’t forget to leave a comment telling us which sign you liked the best and why. When you’re done with this list, you can check out Bored Panda’s previous article about El Arroyo’s hilarious signs right here.

El Arroyo was opened back in 1975 in Austin and has become a local landmark ever since. The restaurant is incredibly proud of its black-lettered sign and it’s become somewhat of an icon in the state capital of Texas. The best part? You can even email them suggestions if you have any witty ideas for their sign: just send them a message at sign@elarroyo.com.

El Arroyo jokes that since its name means “The Ditch,” it’d better have food that’s good. The restaurant acknowledges that they love goofing around and having a good time, but they take Tex Mex food seriously.

The restaurant’s online presence has grown by leaps and bounds over the years. El Arroyo currently has 236k followers on Instagram and it doesn’t look like the flow of new fans will be stopping anytime soon. The staff working there know just how popular their signs are, so they’ve even published three books about them.

This is funny, but why do women wear bras? And why do people shame those who don’t wear them?

With the number of different signs that El Arroyo puts up, some of them are bound to make someone angry. That’s exactly what happened in 2005 when the restaurant put up a sign revealing a mega plot twist at the end of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince (you know the one I’m talking about). There was some backlash, but eventually, people got over it.

According to Austin Monthly, the witty and sharp signs may have been the reason why somebody tried to burn down the restaurant way back in 1998. Wow, some people really can’t handle someone trying to be funny, can they?

I guess it's just the fact that I rewatched frozen, but when it says "It might pass like a kidney stone", it reminds me of that one troll. I-passed-a...4952b.jpeg I-passed-a-kidney-stone-5ea2dab74952b.jpeg

This is more depressing than encouraging and funny, I get screamed at for sleeping just half an hour longer than I'm supposed to.

Not believing in Santa is also okay though. I was never lied to about Santa's existence and preferred it that way, as I was a sensitive child and would have gotten my heart broken when I would have found out he wasn't real.

Yep, even though the "everything happens for a reason"-phrase is one of the crappiest there is, always told by uncaring people to people who suffer. No guys, there is no reason, but things happen regardless. Peace to mankind and clean hands!
