“If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything,” states the description on Dude With Sign's Instagram account. And the guy means it.

He stands for free guacamole, more chips than air in the bag, making it illegal to charge $15 for a bowl of lettuce, or honking as soon as the light turns green, and these are just a handful of things Dude has been protesting for. Today, Dude has made himself into a sort of an icon of the professional peaceful protest league, with 7.3m avid followers cheering for his low-key micro demonstrations.

Armed with a board and a marker, Dude is back with some fresh signs for y’all to think about. Scroll down, upvote your favorites, and after you’re done, be sure to check out more of his funny posters in our previous part 1 and part 2.

Back in 2019, Seth Philips and Elliot Tabele took to the streets of New York City’s SoHo neighborhood to hold up a cardboard sign with the message “Stop replying-all to company-wide emails.” The pic was meant for Tabele’s personal Instagram account, but as the followers grew, the duo decided to make a whole new page dedicated to their low-key protests, and that’s how @dudewithsign was created.

Seth told Forbes that they get the protest and sign ideas mainly from their work environment and coworkers. It turns out, office fun can be an endless source of inspiration for first-world problems.

“When creating the protests, we try to come up with something funny that is relatable that people don't particularly talk about. We try to have each of these elements while appealing to every type of person, which is a big part of why I think the account has accumulated as many followers as it has.”

ALM was a counter-movement created to silence Black Lives Matter, simply because a huge majority of people can't wrap their minds around a simple notion. Thank you for this sign, dude.

The @dudewithsign page quickly grew past the initial 4m followers and now has a whopping 7.3m followers on Instagram, as well as 248.6K followers on Twitter. In January, Seth and his witty signs appeared on The Ellen Show, where they helped Ellen DeGeneres with her opening speech.

Seth also told Forbes that at this point, he’s still trying to figure the future out. “Maybe continue making funny accounts? There are interesting opportunities that I would have never imagined coming my way with this all the time,” he said in the same interview.

Would be good for many reasons to have a 4 day work week... 10 hours x 4 days rather than 8 hours x 5 days. Staggered start and stop times would also improve traffic...

Get a real job and try to be a value to the employer thats pays you in return for your work, instead of standing in the street stating the obvious hoping for your 5 minutes of fame. No one's really made a contribution to society holding up a piece of battered cardboard.

Maybe a 4 day work week could work if you accept a 20% pay cut (and therefore pay less income taxes). In a scenario where everyone worked 4 days instead of 5 (at 80% of their current salary), then more people could be hired (so less unemployment).

Watering 5 days worth of plant care in 4 days is very difficult; indoor tropical plants do not understand or recognize holidays. This one is a no go for me. Short weeks are HARD on some of us ~

I agree. I like my job, I don't mind working 5 days a week (and the perks that come with that) - but I would LOVE a three day weekend. A day between Saturday and Sunday. And then Sunday may be a rest day to all (ok.. apart from nurses, police, firedept, public transport and other emergency people - but like, no restaurants, no shops, just.. quiet. Visit friends, eat with each other)

Unfortunately, regarding working, I'm expecting it to be a new norm; companies will save a fortune not renting office space.

I actually do. Twice a day on office days. Because I commute. When working from home, not so much, not needed. But really, your phone hygiene is needed regardless of the pandemic. It helps keeping your skin clean.
