DEC25 means Decimal 25 - so the number 25.
OCT31 means Octal 31 - which is 25 (Octal base is 8 )


and I'm not sure about the 2nd one but to me I'm reading it as a "The house is guarded 3 days by shotgun...guess which days" In a mannerlike, there are 7 days in a week, it's only guarded 3 of them it's a gamble to show up at the door unannounced. IDK though?

It's almost like the two that I like.

#1 Never mind the dog, beware of the owner.

#2 We shoot every third salesman. The second one just left.


It's a redneck joke.

I stated that even before you posted your lmgtfy...


The joke is not to be gotten. It's rhetorical.

I was being direct for you, it's not necessarily a joke, but a sign that would be hung on a fence or door for people to see.

To be fair, the OP didn't say they were hilarious jokes, they asked for them to be explained. As for the "do we look like a bunch of rednecks toyou?" question--this reminds me I need to hide my location
