PacMan Only Parking?

This sign is on 2 spots in a Staples parking lot. The other spots are marked with the standard symbol for handicapped parking.




For those of you who didn't play drunk PacMan in your ill spent youth this is the icon for the arcade game

Hilarious! Or maybe Pacman eats cars parked there.

Ron said...

Oh, that's HYSTERICAL, Dianne!

And I wonder, what the hell does it mean?!!?

Yes, I played PacMan A LOT in my youth, and so enjoyed it!

Great capture, dear lady!

The color and texture are awesome!

Hope you had a FAB day!

X ya!

Has it been like that for a long time, or is it a recent thing? (like from a prank) Of course, Staples is oblivious. LOL

MaggieGem said...

That is hilarious... maybe the subsequent offense include being eaten by Pacman... ;-)

I remember it well .. .

MyMaracas said...

OH yeah, I remember that!

Without the text below it, I would have had no idea what that sign was trying to tell me. Great find for a photo.

Hmmm. Should I admit that I do remember Pacman? Nah! I'm way too young. (LOL)

I think they will eat your car if you park there like PacMan game or they have no idea what the symbol means!

Maybe I am older than I thought cause this one makes no sense to me at all. Maybe it is for the head honchos ONLY. I surely wouldn’t park there. A great find. genie

Halcyon said...

Very funny! I guess no one dares to park there. :)

Hi Dianne ~~ Right away I thought of PacMan. Surely not. Has the international sign been changed?

I think it is a New Jersey thing. See this Web site: (paste it in)

We still have a Pac Man game that was working when we parked it. I should try it now.

KP isn't learning French very fast if at all. She is learning "King's English" living there in London.

Happy MidWeek Blues!

I can definitely say I've not seen this type of sign before. I guess it's fortunate I can read! LOL!

Ebie said...

Hehehehe, don't laugh. Never played Pacman, the only Pacman I know is Manny Pacquiao, the Filipino boxer!

Lesley said...

Well, PacManis getting on in years, so I guess even he may need handicap parking if he gets out at all!

ladyfi said...

Wonder why Pacman is the sign for handicapped parking? LOL!

Taken For Granted said...

PacMan is a great sign. WIsh there were one in my neighborhood. Can't look at your picture without smiling.

I loved playing PacMan.
I don't get the idea behind it the sign though. I'm with Jenie, maybe I'm too old.
Terrific find!

Jenn Jilks said...

I adored Pacman!

What the heck does it mean? (I recognized it as a PacMan image, but sure doesn't mean anything else to me.) Back to read the earlier comments to see if anyone knew.
