Funny Signs

Recommended Posts

I spotted a thread like this in my local UTAG Forums and thought it was cool, so I thought I would start one here to see even more photos.

 

Here is a funny sign I ran across caching up in Evanston Wyo.

There a thread here in the off topic section that has 7 pages of funny signs. Most of them are too screwy to understand what they even mean.

Those are great, but let's just post "real" ones here.

In a similar, ancient thread, I offered up a sign on the campus of a local university.

 

It reads 'No passing on campus'.

 

Edited to add the pic. Ignore the younger, skinnier, wind-blown fellow.

This is not my picture, but I have a picture of this same sign at home. It ended up being the joke of the day. I probably quoted it 30 times, LOL.

Just trying to share the love.

I must not have passed Irony 101. It took me way longer than it should have to even understand why that sign was "funny".

 

I got it, eventually.

Found this street sign near a cache.

I use it now as my background image on my phone.

Saw this between two cache locations near the airport here. Pretty generic warning, if you ask me.

I don't have a pic of it, but there is a sign on one of the highschool campus parking lots that says "No Parking in this Lot". Begs the question "Then why the h*&$ did you put a lot here?"

I don't have a photo, but near me there are several places where there are yellow diamond shaped signs at the base of hills. The signs say "Hill blocks view"

 

Really? They aren't transparent?

Here is one I saw in Wuhan China.

Sign says

 

Respiratory adjusted to keep up with the beats of the city center towards the direction of the thick material or breeding complex

OK, that one definitely lost something in the (babelfish) translation :D

The parking area outside the laundry point on base here has a few signs "Combat Parking Only".. gotta get a pic of that.

 

Inside our shower trailers, which have no windows, there are signs that say "Turn Lights Off For Safety"... someone didnt think this thru...

 

Will get pics soon.

No. I stumbled upon the Wikipedia article one day and happened to remember it when I saw the picture.

Lol we noticed this after 3 of us climbed on the ruins - when we were leaving - wow.

 

Where is this? I can't remember and would like to go back...

Here is one I saw in a thread called "Interesting signs seen while caching" or something like that.

Here is one I saw while caching by my neighborhood.

And one more also by my neighborhood. This one is archived, but was called Vegetarian Cache. The sign inspired AD0OR (now JAC0B) to place it there. :o-_-:unsure:

Here is one Hedge Hopper and I saw this as we were leaving Seattle after GW8:

Hedge Hopper was disappointed, as he was trying to earn money for the return trip. :unsure:

Was that put up specifically for GW8?

Didn't take a photo, but a great one I still can't get over was at a McDonalds drive up window.

There was a sign that read "Picture Menu Available"

 

Is it just me, or if you can't read and NEED a picture menu, what good is the sign?

 

 

Another was in Dripping Springs TX, where we found a liquor store with a sign out front "Drive up window".

Doesn't that just send the wrong message?

Near a cache in Valladolid, Mexico. This was my favorite of the hand-painted signs, which this town has a lot of. (They don't seem to work though.)

Edit: Someone have a link for the "other" sign thread.

I havent seen one but I have always thought it would be funny to post "DRY PAINT" signs in a building to see who would touch the walls.

OK, that one has got to be photoshoped. If not, someone got fired.

 

i doubt it is photoshoped, i have seen the billboard of the Centre In The Square, here in town that said "Internet is for porn, book your tickets at box office for [insert show name]"...i wish i took a picture of it, was up for about a week but somehow i never got the chance to stop :laughing:

Ah, that would be Avenue Q. I think you can find a video of the song on YouTube if you look for it.

my personal favorite, because it's somewhat subtle: probably the shortest high-speed stretch of road ever:

 

0ac71e58-0b09-4029-976c-14e437979b53.jpg

 

(you're allowed to go 100 km/h between those two "50" km/h signs)

I think it means you can drive faster if you are on the wrong side of the road.

Or, if you're on the left side of the road you can drive 49 km/h or 51 km/h but not 50 km/h. It must be a Canadian thing. I still haven't figured out what the flashing green lights I saw in Vancouver is supposed to mean.
