Oh Deer

Spotted today in Alameda Towne Centre, a place known more for cheesy piped music and chain stores than for offbeat humor:

Please do not feed or sit on the deer

If you trust the sign, feeding the bronze deer statues might be unwise. I suppose it might make the statues reliant on human handouts and lead them to favor human foods, certainly less healthy than their typical diet of wild landscaping plants.

Is this intentional humor, or are they really worried about people trying to give the deer a sip of their Jamba Juice?
