Punctuation on Spin Cycle

My friend/former co-worker sent this a photo of a sign from a laundromat near his brother's apartment in Somerville:

He writes, "It looks like someone tried to edit it already. Was that you?"

Nope, it wasn't me, but I'm glad to see that there are other punctuation vigilantes in the Ville.

Thanks to Will for finding this extremely rare double-semicolon-and-comma catastrophe!

I Like How Every Word Is Capitalized.

Looks like about six times the punctuation any sentence needs, let alone that one!

True, the punctuation is unconventional, but it has a certain perverse logic to it. You can sorta follow the writer's line of thinking, if you break the sentence down. That either makes it more funny or less funny than some of the other stuff on this site, but I'm not sure which it is.

Off-topic remark: I loathe people who abandon their laundry at the end of the cycle.

I once came across a similar sign in the laundry room in an aparment complex I was living at and got so mad that I ripped the sign off the wall and tossed it down the trash chute.
