Yesterday got me thinking: If I was running the Boston Marathon, the last thing I would want to hear from the spectators is, “You can do it!” I mean, really? Yeah, of course I can do it, idiots. I signed up to run the most prestigious marathon in the world, I trained all year, and I’m in the middle of it right now. Those words of encouragement mean absolutely nothing to me.
You know what I would like to hear during those excruciating 26.2 miles, though? A joke. While I’m in the most physical pain my body will likely ever experience (no, I’m not having children), I’d like someone to make me laugh.
That being said, here are 10 of the funniest signs the crowds proudly waved for runners on Marathon Monday. Oh, and for future reference, I’m never actually running a marathon. Enjoy!
