UPDATE: I get so many Google visitors to this post I thought I'd add a little information. Quite a few years ago, when hand dryers stopped having English instructions and these little pictures made their debut, I was out on a photo shoot with friend and art director Dick Allowatt. We were washing our hands in a McDonald's somewhere and I said to him "look at this... to me this looks like it says push button, receive bacon." Well... we laughed and laughed all day about that. I thought it up all on my own but I have no idea really what year that was. When I put this post on my blog, a friend of mine said "did you get that idea from Charlie Cooper?" I said that I thought it up all on my own, but she said that she heard that Charlie said that. Well... I did a quick Google search and found that the phrase was all over the place. Apparently there was a punk band named Push Button Receive Bacon. Somebody had a CafePress site selling stuff with the phrase on it! Was I the first to say that? Did it spread virally from me? I have no idea. Perhaps I was the first but I doubt that it spread just from me... perhaps many people said it. No one will ever know, but it's still funny.
