Picasso used a paint brush to make beautiful works of art. Mozart tickled the ivories to produce some of the most iconic musical numbers. And this Virgin America employee used his extensive knowledge of dad humor to make for the best damn boarding signs of all time.
The gate agent and dad joke king, who goes by the name Rootbeer1 on Imgur, explained his reasoning behind the hilarious signs in an Imgur post.
“As a Virgin America employee, I’m encouraged to always put quotes up on our gate signs, if there’s no weather delays or other important info to display. Sometimes we just try to amuse our guests (frequently with humor influenced by IMGUR).”
One thing’s for sure: he does a hell of a job in the amusement department.
Unfortunately, there’s a little bit of sad news for fans of Rootbeer1’s signs.
“New owner Alaska Airlines isn’t really known for a cheeky corporate culture, so signs like these are most likely going away,” he wrote.
What a bunch of buzz kills. In case he doesn’t get another chance to work his boarding sign magic ever again, let’s take the time to remember Rootbeer1 in in all his dad joke glory.
