About

Firefighters "Do Not Disturb" refers to a series for four-pane exploitables in which a pair of firefighters approach a burning room but decide not to enter based on what's written on the "do not disturb" sign hanging from the door handle. Online, people have photoshopped replacements words, phrases and symbols to express disapproval towards those things.

When posted to Facebook, [2] the comic (shown below) received more than 70 likes and 20 shares in nearly two years.

This makes me a little sad because the original comic was supposed to be a funny joke about firefighters taking things a little to literal with the "Do Not Disturb", but as always, the Internet just uses the rule "If it's a 4 panel, it's a hate comic"
Seriously, This is the same joke that appears every single time, no matter how much you change the drawings or how the characters look, it is gonna be the same old joke, and it was funny the first few times is appeared, but this is like 9-12 months with the same "I HATE THIS COMIC".
(Although not every variation of this is bad, shoutouts to the person who did this one, I found it kinda funny, even though it was an overused joke about "Snoop Dogg smokes weed dude" I like the execution here, still way better than "LOL FURRIES XDXDXD!")
