“I could potty train a dog faster than this”: Food truck’s cheeky COVID-19 sign goes viral

Amid all the chaos caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s nice to see that some people have managed to maintain a sense of humour.

Case in point: a food witty food truck driver in the US whose name is Evan.

The man runs a pork-specialty food truck and catering service called Swine & Steel, which he only opened three months prior to the start of the coronavirus pandemic, according to NBC’s Today.

Evan began putting up a number of smaller signs reminding customers to mask up during the initial stages of the pandemic, but he said there were still multiple people turning up for a feed without one on.

So, Evan decided to create a much larger sign laden with cheeky responses to some of the common excuses from maskless customers.


“People didn’t pay attention to (smaller) signs … after a year and 400,000 dead Americans and counting, I have to worry about my wife who’s immunocompromised,” Evan told Today.

“I have to worry about my one employee and her spouse, and I have to worry about every customer that comes after some selfish person who thinks that their needs are the only ones that matter, and I just couldn’t handle it anymore.

“So, I made a bigger sign that made how I felt crystal-clear.”

The sign quickly went viral after being shared on Twitter earlier this month, garnering more than 250,000 likes and over 56,000 retweets so far.

Swine & Steel’s Twitter page has enjoyed a nice boost, too, gaining more than 1,700 followers since the sign emerged on social media.
