You’ve probably come across the signs while scrolling Facebook… This is something they have been doing for a long time. They have even been published in 3 books!

They are insanely popular on Instagram with over 238K followers at the time of this writing!

Now, when I said they have been doing this for a long time, I wasn’t kidding. In fact, back in 2005, there was a little bit of drama over it. Apparently they revealed the plot twist for the end of the Harry Potter book the Half-Blood Prince. Oops!

The 2005 El Arroyo sign that broke hearts

Some of the signs have upset people so much that they think that may have been why someone attempted to burn down the restaurant back in 1998! Chill out, people!
