No restrooms. Try Amazon.

If you've stepped into a closing Borders Books you might have seen a handwritten sign about the sales and get-it-now bargains. Maybe you've seen a sign or two that was printed there in the store. Did you see this one? "No Restrooms - Try Amazon."

It's among more than a dozen photos that Buzzfeed has gathered from around the Web (see them here). There are pictures of altered signage, exasperated jokes and wry humor:  empty bookshelves with the sign "FREE AIR GUITARS. Please take one!"

The bankruptcy of a massive bookstore isn't funny. Except when it is.
