“Whenever I see a sign that says ‘keep off the grass,’I wonder how it got there”

A joke about “keep off the grass” signs is:

“Whenever I see a sign saying ‘keep off the grass’, I often wonder how it got there.”

That is, someone must have walked on the grass to put the sign up. The jocular one-line saying was posted on Twitter on May 8, 2013.
