A “Helpful” Rhyme

Today I drove past the fire department and they had a sign out front that read

GET OUT QUICK IF THE SMOKE IS THICK

I guess they’re trying to be cute and rhyme and everything but I think an even more effective sign, and wiser advice, would be

IF YOUR HOUSE IS ON FIRE THEN GET OUT

I mean, otherwise it’d be like “I know my kitchen is engulfed in flames but you know what? There’s really not much smoke. I think I’ll stay put. Besides, I can’t be bothered if the smoke isn’t thick. I have laundry to fold.”
