Things with things

Why do we love the Happy Foot / Sad Foot sign so much? Is it because it shows a foot with... feet?
Why is a foot with feet so loveable when a tooth with teeth strikes me as just menacing? Nevertheless, several area dentists find the icon to be just as good for business.

This sign is to be found around 14891 Burbank Boulevard,

And this one on Sunset and Echo Park.

I am sure there are many others of these to be found.
Submissions are always welcome in the comments!


  1. Oh man, if only we could get that tooth together with the foot!

  2. Didn't have my camera with me, but next time I'm at the Glassel Park Home Depot I'll get a shot of the hot dog eating a hot dog with one hand while putting ketchup on its own forehead with the other.
