"Are you sure you want to exist?" is definitely a good one:)

I see such phrases everywhere! Another day a student came to my class wearing a t-shirt with "Everything is poossible if you want it" on it.

Btw, it reminded me of an old joke "I would never let my kids watch the orchestra, too much sax and violins"

Those are really funny examples. Here are some other funny sentences. The first one isn't a typo though.

In a shop: "Don't touch yourself.Ask the staff." (https://www.memedroid.com/memes/detail/1303434) How considerate!

Bread section in a super market: "Do not touch bread with hands. Please use tongue."(https://awwmemes.com/i/do-not-touch-bread-with-hands-please-use-tongue-38aae45d18c54864bbda0b4a6cf9ee19) Yummy. That's when I learnt the word "tongs".
