Canoe Parking Only

Tales from other places, part trois

While this sign happens to be for cars parking near a bar/restaurant called The Canoe Club, its parking lot warning sign sparks wonder in the imaginations of its parkers. Did the parking lot owners intend to joke around with motorists, planting images of canoers paddling up to the bar for libations, unhindered by non-patrons blocking the way, thanks to the helpful sign? Or do they get the joke at all?
