Signs are an important part of human existence. Without them, we would literally be lost. They contain important information for almost any situation.
There are road signs, traffic signs, business signs, church signs, and even ‘lama crossing’ signs. That last one was just to make sure that you’re paying attention. A good sign knows how to use words to make us do something, buy something or inspire us. Here are a few signs that made us smile or stop and think.
And What About The 15th Floor?
Thank you for informing us that the 9th floor is now the 15th floor. But, the most pressing question is, where is the 15th floor now?
Also, we find it interesting that they wrote, "temporarily". Apparently, the 9th floor has plans of making a comeback to its original location.
Highway Word Play
Texting and driving is an epidemic. People just cannot keep their hands off their phones while in the driver’s seat. This sign uses a witty if slightly cheesy pun to send a message. Please put down your phone while you are behind the wheel.
That really important text about what you had for lunch can wait until you get where you’re going. We feel this sign is successful because it uses humor and not threats. It’s good advice, take it.
Go for the Juggler
Next time you are attacked by a group of clowns, you’ll know, the weakest link is the juggler. They aren’t really an integral part of the clown posse. Anyway, this whole scenario sounds pretty terrifying. The wordplay is on point, but the images evoked are straight out of a bad dream.
Thanks so much for making us sleep with one eye open tonight. The writing on the door is a clue to the next sign. Can you guess what it is?
Jesus Has Spoken
This sports fan not only thought of a witty sign to take to the game, he actually went through the trouble of dressing up like Jesus! We're giving this guy 10 points for originality.
And as far as being a loyal and supportive fan goes, this guy takes the cake. If a message from God himself isn't enough to get his team going, we don't know what is.
Just Wash Your Hands
This establishment clearly doesn’t care who uses the bathroom. The only thing they care about is that you wash your hands after doing your business. One of the grossest things ever is when someone walks out of the stall and just heads out the door. We don’t even want to think about restaurant employees who handle our food doing that.
The idea behind this sign is that no matter who or what you are you should feel comfortable using the bathroom. Now that is a sentiment we can get behind.
Is That Really Necessary?
We applaud this store's willingness to help its customers above and beyond, but really, guys? We don't really think adult people need a demonstration on how to use a toilet.
And also, if someone were to actually ask for a demonstration, how would it actually go down? Personally, we would be very tempted to ask, just to see what happens.
Very Good Advice
In all fairness, it is probably best to remove the child from the clothing before throwing it in the washing machine. Especially since we're talking about a "size 3 to 4 years"! Not that throwing anyone, at any age, in a washing machine would be any better.
The most worrying thing about this label is that this doesn't seem to be a grammar mistake or a question of a missing letter or punctuation. Did they actually mean to write the word "child" there?!
Funny and True
This sign is pretty straightforward, at least for most people. This is one of the most annoying things about driving on the highway. Is it really so difficult to use your blinker? It’s right by the steering wheel.
How did these people ever pass driver’s ed? These days, with so many motorcycles on the road, it’s especially important to signal before you change lanes. The people who put up this message are laying down the law but in a funny way.
Truth Above All
Wouldn’t a sign like this make you even a little bit less angry if you were forced to wait a long time for a service? At least they’re being honest.
And you can count on them being super-fast and effective, once your turn actually comes to get service. No matter how long you wait, you know you’re getting fast service. What more could anyone ask for?
Cutest Sign Ever
This dad probably had a laugh and got a big smile on his face after seeing this sign. And hey, maybe mommy is a lot of work, but she was cool enough to make this sign and have the idea to hang it on the baby's stroller.
Or, even better, maybe baby Kaden has a very bright future in the arts!
They Totally Wouldn't
Anyone who's ever had a cat will get a big laugh out of this one. Because in all fairness, if cats could actually show any signs of consideration or respect towards humans, they wouldn't, and that's why we love them.
Cats just do what they feel like, when they feel like it, how they feel like. Get used to it, cat lovers.
Teaching Us To Love Ourselves
We just love this sign. In a world that seems so obsessed with having the perfect body image, this lovely sign reminds us that having a little extra is nothing to feel bad about. In fact, on the contrary, it makes us magic!
Next time you’re feeling a little overweight, remember, you’re just on your way to becoming a magical mermaid!
This sign is so sad, we wish we could do something to cheer it up. It really is a rough blow to have an office building or something built right in front of you. It makes us wonder what it was looking at before.
Maybe a beautiful beach, a lush fo,rest or snow-capped mountains. Either way, we feel for the sign, it’s clearly upset about the loss of a treasured pastime. Three sad emojis in a row, now that’s some real pain.
Lion King Pizza
This sign had us bawling with laughter the second we saw it. I mean, come on, it’s genius! You can actually hear Rafiki screaming out the words!
All we can say is, if we ever came across this sign, we would without a doubt go in for a pizza. Even if just to say congrats to the guys inside. Wouldn’t you?
Sean Connery Discount
Because who doesn’t enjoy listening to the voice of the late, great, Sean Connery? Hearing an order in that Scottish accent is enough to make anyone’s day, and these guys are so aware of this, that they’re even offering a discount to whoever helps!
There's no doubt he would ask for his coffee shaken, not stirred.
Dieting Without Feeling Hungry
If you’re on a diet and hungry but don’t know what to do, just read this sign. It seems like the best thing to keep your appetite in check is a big juicy burger. You can’t really argue with that, if you’re hungry and you eat you won’t be hungry anymore.
Everyone should try just eating when they’re hungry. Although if you’re counting calories, a burger might not be the best choice. Unless you’re looking for an excuse to scarf one down. Look, the sign made me do it.
Endless stretches of road and long hours in the car can make anyone sleepy. These signs liven things up with some exciting trivia questions and you can impress your friends and family with your general knowledge.
Driving will be more fun, and that road trip will go by in a jiffy. We’re not sure why these signs aren’t more popular. This must be the most boring stretch of road in all of Queensland.
Letting Off Some Steam
This clothing store should call someone to check on their lighting situation because we’re not sure what kind of people it’s going to attract as a “Swearhouse.” Sounds like a perfect place to blow off some steam. Also, the suits in the window class up the joint, so you know you’re going to be mixing with some high-class clientele while doing your swearing.
Hey mister, just because bad words are allowed doesn’t mean this is a shabby place. You know what? I think they should leave the lights as is. Thseemeems to be a lot of interesting business opportunities in the swearhouse.
Save Me A Seat
Remember when you were a kid and you asked your best friend to save you a seat so that you wouldn’t end up sitting alone? This is the same thing only for the elderly. This restaurant obviously knows its clientele and has marked their territory with this hilarious sign.
We just hope this doesn’t bother other customers and make them start thinking about farts while they’re eating. For all you zoo lovers out there, the upcoming lesson is for you.
Aren't You Happy to be Home, Mom?
Thank god these kids are as cute as they are because coming home to do laundry is probably not what this mom had in mind. However, it was extremely adorable of them to make a welcome home sign by themselves (judging by the garbage truck and tractor drawing on the sign). In fact, it was so important for them to greet mom that they even went commando!
And hey, they just wanted to let mommy know about the current state of affairs at home - which is that daddy apparently couldn't figure out how to work a washing machine.
Keep It Elegant
Only in Japan would you see such a polite sign. Elsewhere, you would be most likely greeted with a sign that read "Please aim in the toilet and clean up after yourself". But no, these guys are kindly asking you "urinate with precision and elegance"
It seems like a fair request. After all, they are asking nicely.
Sad But True
We're always up for some dark humor, and this sign does exactly that.
Sadly, the world does seem like a post-apocalyptic tale sometimes, and these guys decided to get a laugh out of it, at least.
Calm Under Pressure
Hopefully, if a wild animal attacks it will be more like Seth Green in “Without a Paddle” than Leonardo De Caprio in “The Revenant.” But real life isn’t like the movies and this sign has important information that even a real wildlife expert should take to heart.
Although truthfully, reading a sign and thinking that you know what to do is completely different than standing in front of a lion and trying to actually do it.
The Beauty of (Public) Revenge
Hats off to this girl! We can't imagine the level of satisfaction she was feeling at that moment, which is pretty clear from her face of absolute excitement. It seems like a fair trade - the guy cheats and the girl gets the premium tickets to the game (and dumped, obviously).
We only wish someone could have caught the ex-boyfriend's face when looking at this sign on TV. Hey, that's what you get for being a liar.
Even if you weren't in the market for some goat butter, this sign would definitely make you at least consider taking one home. And hey, whoever said goats butter can't solve your ghost problem?
For £1.90, we would take a ghost-fighting butter home, wouldn't you?!
Not Good At Taking Criticism
Clearly, these people don’t do very well with complaints. And to be honest, even if you had one, as soon as you’d see this, you’d laugh and forget what you were planning on complaining about in the first place.
We can imagine something like this being in some military headquarter offices. But regardless, we think it’s safe to say that, if you actually have something to say, keep it to yourself.
Talk about dry humor, yikes! We wouldn't really recommend this place if you're looking for a nice "Fish & Chips" place to take your Nemo-loving kids. And if you do, at least cover their eyes on the way in.
We have to give them points for creativity, though. If you're over the age of 12, you're sure to have a big laugh with this one.
How many times have you found your favorite brand of chips after looking tirelessly in the market, just to get home and have them chowed down by your husband or kids?
Well, thanks to the great guys at this supermarket, you may have just found a way to never have to go through that again!
Such a great pun. First of all, who was the brave soul that dared steal nothing less than a toilet from cops?! What do you think happens when all those doughnuts and coffee go down?
Not only are these boys clueless, but they LITERALLY have nothing to go on! Sorry guys, it looks like you'll have to resort to the woods for a while.
In Case You Were Planning To
Apparently, the people that put up this sign don't have much faith in humanity. We understand why there would be several safety signs around a swimming pool, but 'Do Not Breathe Under The Water'? Seriously?
We'd certainly hope that whoever decides to go swimming would have enough basic common sense to not try and breathe underwater. But hey, then again, you never know.
The Best Nation In The Nation!
And this is exactly why America is "the best country in the nation", because not only is America a country, and not an entire continent, but it is also the best country within one country!
Bravo guys! We sincerely advise brushing up on your geography and grammar lessons. Just for next time.
Truer Words Have Never Been Spoken
Surely, this sign already brightened many people's day, reminding them, amongst their dreaded work week, that they're not alone, and we all feel the same way about Mondays. And Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, for that matter.
Indeed, those first five days after Sunday are definitely the hardest. And usually how long it takes to recover for the next weekend.
We all know that Wi-Fi has highs and lows. It’s either fast or slow, or a mix of the two, depending on a lot of technical factors. It’s good that lots of places offer free Wi-Fi, otherwise, we’d all run out of data on our phone plans.
Can you even remember a time before Wi-Fi? What did we do, talk to each other? This sign looks at Wi-Fi philosophically. Maybe reading it will make you stop and smell the roses instead of checking your Facebook, again.
Not only are these guys considerate of animals, but they also don’t judge when it comes to people.
And hey, it’s water, it’s there, and if you can easily take a sip and you’re thirsty, who are they to say you can’t?
Who’s A Good Penguin?
Here’s a sign that makes us smile. Each month, a good penguin and a naughty penguin get singled out for mention at this New Zealand zoo. This is a cute way to let visitors get to know the penguins at the zoo in a funny way. Oh, and don’t worry about Timmy, we heard he’s turning over a new leaf, next month he’s going to get the good title for sure.
Whoever thought this up has a good sense of humor and obviously cares a whole lot for the penguins at the exhibit.
Thank You for Your Support
It’s always a good idea to support Mom and Pop shops although these days they are very hard to come by. These businesses usually offer some really great things you can’t get at your local McDonald’s – fresh ingredients, the feeling of family, and loyal customers who appreciate something simple and good.
The business that put up this sign clearly appreciates its customers and went out of its way to show it. I can’t imagine anyone reading this and not feeling good about giving them their business.
Keeping It Real
The most honest lawn sign you'll ever see, this person definitely makes a point when it came to the 2016 presidential elections.
We're guessing they weren't big fans of politics in general, and we can completely understand that. Regardless of whom you voted for, this sign is sure to give you a laugh, at least.
You're Done, Simon
Nothing like arriving from a long flight to find your girl holding up this sign. We're assuming Britney found some compromising photos on the selfie stick (which, by the way, who in their right mind leaves hanging around their girlfriend in the first place?).
What's worse is that this doesn't seem to be the first time something like this happens, since they've already "talked about this". But really Simon, your selfie stick?! It's like this guy wanted to get caught! Good for you, Britney, he deserves the public shaming!
This is the definite winner from our list. A hundred points for creativity and original puns. Not only does this sign make you laugh and smile instantly, but it also gives a lighter note to a serious and difficult subject, giving hope to everyone everywhere!
If someone with a hokey pokey addiction was able to turn themselves around, you can do anything! The hokey pokey is not an easy thing to let go of. Just try it.
Pie and Lattes
We don't know if this is a coffee shop's (brilliant) way of advertising their one-of-a-kind pies and lattes, or a pilates studio trying to be funny, but this sign is fantastic. Being a more 'pie and latte' kind of people ourselves, we definitely appreciate the light comedy.
Plus, there's no better way to get customers, whether they be coffee drinkers or pilates enthusiasts than through comedy. We're definitely using this next time a friend asks us to join them for pilates. Exercise? Yuk!
We think everyone would love to have a portable sign like this at one point or another in their lives. Such a polite way of saying, “back-off”.
Hey, at least the person was polite enough to warn us. And if we ever run into a sign like this in real life, we will be sure to run!
This is probably the worst Father’s Day gift you could deliver to your dad. You’re basically telling him that in all those years of working together in the garage you didn’t hear a single thing he said. But hey, at least it can be used as kindling to warm the house on a really cold day.
On the other hand, maybe this isn’t about double checking at all, but about a mysterious thing called “twic” that helps you make more accurate measurements.
Of Course It's Haunted
Oh no, not this again. The previous “not haunted” house I lived in ended with me trying to find some real-life ghostbusters. The ghosts behind this sale could use a lesson on being more subtle.
Anyway, maybe the spirits in this house are friendly and are just looking for a fourth for playing cards. If you’re willing to risk it, call up Chase Hicks, I’m sure he could get you a good deal, especially if you don’t mind sharing with a roommate.
The Naughty Cat
Cats, in general, are not known to be very respectful when it comes to food. But hey, who would expect anything different? They are natural-born predators, at the end of the day, so if you leave food lying around, that’s on you.
So, it’s only fair this nice coffee shop would want to warn its customers about the naughty neighborhood cat. Thanks, guys.
This one is a double-edged sword because even though the witty sign may make a lot of people come in for a haircut, there might be people who are put off by reading the word "ugly" on a hairdresser's advertisement.
Regardless, we find it hilarious. Hey, at least they're being brutally honest, if they can't make you look good, you're the one with the problem. We dare you to walk in and find out.
The Love Tomatoes
Such a lovely sign to see over your vegetables. Yes, it is cheesy, but cute, nonetheless. And, if you're shopping with your kids and are trying to get them to eat more vegetables, what better way than asking them to go pick some tomatoes and get some love?
Kudos to the supermarket staff for making mundane grocery shopping just a little bit brighter!
No Camping on the Highway
People who drive slowly in the left lane are both annoying and dangerous and the people in this mountain town are obviously not going to put up with it anymore.
Let’s face it, there’s nothing worse than driving behind someone going less than the speed limit in the fast lane. This sign has got it right and isn’t afraid to speak out. Be careful slow pokes, next time they might send you to camp in the lake.
You Mean This Little Barking Toy?
Although this dog looks harmless, we’re sure this sign is there for a reason. Admittedly, he does look tiny, but maybe he has a big bark and maybe an even bigger bite. He could be the meanest small dog in the history of canines for all we know.
Just to be safe, it’s better to ring the bell. And if you manage to get by the dog, beware of its owner. Seems like they are even scarier, the reason is coming up soon.
It seems that saving lives is only one of the perks of being a superhero. Batman can also get an awesome discount on some SnoBalls. All he has to do to enjoy this tasty dessert is show up in costume. The kids would love it, but the media would be all over him.
Batman would probably just zip out of there with one of his cool gadgets, but we’re not sure a dollar off would be worth the hassle. It is unclear why Batman is the only superhero recognized by Skippy’s but we’re pretty sure Superman is working on his lawsuit right now.
Ladies and Gents
Maybe this will answer the ultimate question: why do women go to the bathroom in pairs? It is pretty clear here which bathroom is for which sex. Men use the bathroom for its intended purpose, while women often use it to dish on their date or put on makeup.
This is why the ladies’ room always has a long line in front of it. Two women are sharing secrets and many others are outside doing the wee-wee dance. Another bathroom sign is coming up, but please remember to wash your hands.
It's Hot Where They're Going
Bravo guys. A very clear message to whoever stole their (obviously very precious) AC units. Apparently, Pastor Jeffery has quite a sense of humor. And despite it all, they’re still allowing the AC thief to keep one!
How considerate, they even think of his comfort when he arrives in hell. Now that’s being a good pastor.
Another sign with hard evidence that being a bit overweight is nothing to feel bad about. In fact, if you think about it, it comes in handy if you’re ever in a situation of danger. Because hey, fat people ARE harder to kidnap!
On the flip side, they’re doing a hell of a job at making us want to stop at their place for a bite. Well done, guys.
This type of poster is a staple in every college dorm and is a pretty accurate description of a typical Friday night when you are a student. But putting this up in the street is genius. This is the perfect way to remind drivers that gangs of roving drunk kids are walking to the bar, and probably not looking both ways before crossing the road.
The only addition we would make to the picture is to throw in a cell phone. What’s a drunken night out without embarrassing selfies and drunk texting?
Starbucks Ain’t Got Nothing on Them
We are definitely intrigued. Good for TireDiscounters for trolling the Pumpkin Spice Latte phenomenon and reminding us all that there is more to life than a warm and delicious PSL.
The new trend this fall is PSR and frankly, it’s time for a change. If nothing else, this grabbed your attention and made you smile. It’s nice to know that tire store employees have such a good sense of humor.
Don’t Walk This Way
While taking a nice stroll through the woods the first question that comes to mind is “how many hands are going to try and grab me as I try to run away?” This sign takes creepy to a whole new level.
Is it a warning that some people are hiding in the bushes, ready to grab onto whoever is walking by? That really does seem to be the message. Finally, someone brave enough to admit what we all think about while jogging in the woods.
Slippery but Fabulous
This awesome sign can be interpreted in two ways. Either this is what people actually look like when they slip on a wet surface or when falling in this exact location people get the sudden urge to breakdance.
To be honest, I would be happy if I could turn each time I fall down into a cool move. It looks great and instead of feeling embarrassed, you feel fabulous. Life can only be improved by having more dance moves in it!
Well, apparently the circumstances were so unforeseen that they messed with this psychic's ability to predict the future. Let's not jump to conclusions and say we would definitely consider attending the next fair.
Even if it's just to ask the psychic what happened. And if they were trying to be funny, they succeeded flawlessly.
In Case Of Emergency, Laugh!
This is just hilarious. Even though we know that's meant to be a picture of a stick man drowning, it looks like the sign says LOL, as in, "In case of drowning, Laugh Out Loud!".
But hey, in case it wasn't clear, at least they included the tiny print at the bottom: "Call 911".
Stay Strong, Teachers!
Probably not so funny for a concerned parent passing by, but we totally understand. If there's anyone who deserves a hearty welcome, it's teachers at a liquor store.
Hey, if they're not getting a fair salary, the least we can do is applaud the liquor stores that keep them distracted from the fact, no?
Husband Day Care
Anyone who’s married (or single, for that matter) will have a big laugh with this one. This should actually be a regular thing everywhere in the world.
It’s not clear whether this is a bar, a gym, a spa, or what, but we love the concept. The only thing we’re not quite sure about is the drinking part. Maybe not such a good idea to leave your husband in a daycare full of booze. But hey, if it gives the ladies a day off, it’s definitely worth it. Don’t worry, guys, we’ll open a wife daycare center, too.
This was a very nice idea to raise some money for a worthy cause, but something got jumbled along the way. Although we all wish we could eradicate childhood diabetes, getting into fist fights with young sufferers is probably not the way to do it.
The point they wanted to make is clear, but they really should have had someone else look this over before they rushed out to print signs. On a more positive note, a Christmas bazaar and craft show sounds lovely and a good place to get some holiday shopping done.
Please Don’t Litter
This clever sign in a park really makes you think. The sign sits alongside a hiking trail and really gets in your head and tries to figure you out. You came out to enjoy a beautiful nature trail, why are you messing it up with your garbage?
This sign offers a few embarrassing options to consider and it will most likely shame you into putting the trash where it belongs – in the bin. Nobody wants to admit that they are a jerk, not even to themselves.
Ignore if You Are a Fly
It really is so kind of the Kew Botanical Gardens to let the flies know it's OK for them to stop on the plants (even though it will actually kill them).
Besides, we're sure this sign was absolutely necessary after what were probably countless visitors stopping to touch the carnivore plants.
No Trippin' Alligators, Please!
I mean, we can completely understand their logic. Who in their right mind would want a bunch of alligators walking around hallucinating?!
We’re guessing there have been some incidents in the past of tourists feeding hallucinogenic mushrooms to the gators. Why? Beats us. The only thing we can think of scarier than an alligator is an alligator on psychedelics.
We all know the importance of placing these signs around when necessary because we have indeed seen some dangerous slips in our day. But this? This is just hilarious.
Just imagining someone placing that sign on the blue board and sending it off to float on the pool, makes us laugh. And it is true, that floor IS especially wet!
Loving The Irony
Remember libraries? They still exist, yes, but they're rarely visited anymore. This library decided to do something about it, and remind us that, even in the age of the internet, it's still important to go to your local library.
Now, taking into account you're reading this article on the internet, we have to appreciate the irony here.
Watch Your Aim
Sometimes men are the worst! This request is not for something impossible or unattainable, but for something they’ve had most of their lives to practice.
The people who run this place and probably clean the bathrooms are just asking for a little common courtesy in a nice and funny way. We hope that this eye-catching sign helps bathroom users make the effort. Unless it ends up being too distracting, which may make the problem even worse than before.
Hands down, the best Mother's Day sign. In case you forgot you're the reason your mom drinks, here is this fabulous sign to remind you. And the least you can do is buy her a margarita, don't you think?
In any case, these guys are surely going to rake it in every Mother's Day, because no sign has ever been truer.
A Worthy Cause
Kudos to this brave protester who finally took an important stand. Eggs should be kept in the refrigerator and if you’re leaving them out, you are taking the chance of them going bad and making you sick. We are ready to join this woman and take to the streets, and potentially save lives.
Some things cannot be left unsaid even if not everyone will appreciate your input into their lives. Go eggs! Next, if you’re a litterbug, come hiking, this trail is the right one for you.
Don't Mess With Someone's Pills
We have to say we totally agree with this sign. At least this guy is taking it in stride and wishing well upon whoever took his anti-depressants. We’re loving the dry humor.
Don’t people know you don’t mess with someone’s happy pills?!
Doherty, Sean Doherty
This sign is a bit confusing. Is Sean Doherty trying to sell houses or water guns? We really hope it’s the latter. He could be the first ever door-to-door water gun salesman, helping with all your squirting needs.
If he ever showed up at my doorstep, I would probably be more interested in purchasing a water gun than a house. Although admittedly, his suit does seem a bit fancy for getting wet.
The Coffee-drinking Psycopath
Drinking coffee in a coffee shop? Absolute madness! The sad part is if you were to actually picture a guy sitting alone in Starbucks, looking at the people around, with nothing but his coffee mug on the table, you'd probably think he was a weirdo too.
Ironically, technology has made us the actual psychopaths. We're loving the cynicism of this sign, though.
A Different Kind Of Bumper Sticker
This guy's not a parent, and he's proud of it! Probably tired of seeing the typical 'perfect family' bumper sticker on every other SUV, this guy decided he would customize one of his own.
Yes, I'm in a relationship, and no, we don't have kids. And yes, we're VERY happy and have loads of money! Take that for a bumper sticker!
Way Too Hot
Our kind of sign: honest, concise, and to the point. Bottom line, ladies and gentlemen, sin is bad, Jesus is good, and if you want more details, just come inside, because it's way too hot to explain it all in a sign!
We would be curious to hear the rest of the details, wouldn't you?
In A Dog's World
To be honest, we've never wondered about this before, but now that we've seen this sign, it does make us think. Can you imagine if you never knew that your pet got as nervous as you did every time they saw one of those German Shepherd cops walk by?
Since dogs don't see colors in the same way as humans do, it's not like they can recognize them from their blue suits, so maybe it's just certain types of dogs that set off a warning. Even if they weren't police dogs, who in their right mind would go near a German Shepherd or a Rottweiler without a little caution?
Humans on The Loose
Oh good, you made it past the dog. What’s with all the weapons? Seems like these people really do not want anyone inside their houses. The small dog and the doily in the doorway make it seem like a little old lady lives here.
The signs are probably gag gifts from her adorable grandchildren. We’d prefer not to consider the alternative. So, if you care about your health, these signs might be a good reason to steer clear.
Beware of the Sign
There's nothing more dangerous than a sign. Its bright yellow color, the black font, the "sharp" edges. Definitely far more dangerous than the bridge beyond it.
We do appreciate the humor, though, since obviously, whoever made this sign clearly meant it as a joke. And if you're not convinced, just read the cheeky fine print below that reads "Also, The Bridge Is Out Ahead".
In A Galilee Far Away
This is just brilliant. We applaud this church's successful attempt to blend pop culture and religion. Wouldn't you be more open to attending Sunday mass if you saw this sign outside of the church?
We certainly would, even if it was just to hear if the pastor was planning on making any more Star Wars references. Gotta love a Pastor who's a Star Wars fanatic.
All About Acceptance
These words are a good lesson for all of us. Building a longer table means sharing what you have with others and being more accepting. Building a taller fence means keeping to yourself and pushing strangers away.
Life isn’t always easy, and everybody needs a helping hand sometimes. If you can reach out and help someone who really needs it, you probably should. There’s a reason people say giving back is its own reward, you won’t believe how good it can make you feel.
Bravo. Our deepest respects go out to whoever had the guts to actually advertise their motel like this. In fact, if we were to ever pass this sign by the side of the road, we'd definitely make a turn and go check out this fancy establishment. If only just to meet the owner. And their marketing and art department, of course.
Nothing screams 'fancy' like a handwritten sign attached to four poles in the middle of nowhere. We're sure this motel is so busy it's turning down customers left and right.
If my feet are shoes, why don’t they keep me warm in the winter? These questions and others will make this sign a staple in any philosophy course around.
Even better, this sounds like great homework, please write 2,000 words by Tuesday discussing the theory of feet being shoes. The sign makes this look more like an existential google search than a shoe store. The 50% off sign in the window clearly shows that business is not booming.
Nothing but Space and Air
While some people might find this sign a little cheesy, we absolutely loved it. To be fair, this sign is completely logical - you would expect a whole lot of nothing in a museum of space and air.
Maybe next time they'll call it the 'Museum of Aeronautics'. Just to make things clearer.
Maybe this guy decided to play a prank on his buddy and welcome him home with a joke. Or maybe, this guy was actually proposing to a longtime partner - in which case we hope he said yes, even though it's not the classiest of proposals, to say the least.
We have to congratulate this guy - either for having the guts to pop the question in a crowded airport, or dealing with the fallout jokes that were surely made after people probably started taking pictures and posting this online.
Jumping Gay Walrus
This just made us cry with laughter, which we’re sure was the sign’s intention, because what would really be the problem with a gay walrus that wants to jump back into the sea?
Anyways, you should be careful, walruses are quite massive. So yeah, maybe you should look over your shoulder to see if there are any hanging around.
Big Enough for a Blind Ref
It's not easy being a referee. No one remembers the hundreds of calls you got right but you can’t stop hearing about the one people think you got wrong. Usually this I because it could make or break the game.
This kid found a creative way to say what’s on everyone’s mind, with a giant phone showing a “missed call” from, you guessed it, the referee. It’s pretty amazing that he had that made and brought it with him to pull out at just the right moment.
Best Dad Joke
Another gem from the Colorado-based Indian Hills Community Center, this sign had us laughing for a while.
Doesn’t it sound like some typical dad joke your father would blurt out in the middle of a family dinner? Yes, it’s cheesy. But great, nonetheless.
The Definition of Snarky
Being a delivery guy is not the best job in the world. There are a few perks like working outside, occasional tips, and a close friendship with a number of jumpy dogs, but it’s not exactly the stuff dreams are made of. This homeowner decided to passively aggressively educate their deliveryman about the proper use of a doorbell.
Hey buddy, since when has knocking become a crime? You could just ask nicely you know. Although admittedly it may be annoying if this happens more than once.
Even children know that a red octagonal sign seen anywhere in the world means “stop”, but this particular stop sign makes us chuckle. Wouldn’t it be nice if all stop signs said “dur?” If people felt they were being criticized every time they came to one, maybe they would stop rolling through them and come to a complete stop.
If a “dur” sign doesn’t make you stop, we really don’t know what else we can do. In case you were wondering, "dur" means stop in Turkish.
We Promise to Be Cool!
We think this is a totally legitimate request. What if we eliminated politics altogether and promised to live in peace and just be cool to each other?
Taking into account the latest issues in politics, this idea doesn't sound so far-fetched, don't you think? It's utopic, we know. But it makes you smile for a few seconds to even consider the possibility, doesn't it?
A Humerus Sign
We don’t have a bone to pick with this sign; it’s great. This person clearly loves his privacy and that’s exactly what he will get after people see this sign.
Yes, we probably think the bones are from the animals that died on his land and he just piled them up there as a joke. However, we are not willing to take that chance to find out if those bones are real or are actually from past trespassers.
Add Some Sprinkles on Top
We don’t want to add insult to injury, but if you lean on that barrier you will. We can imagine the embarrassment one would feel when leaning against that and then falling.
But, tripping the sprinkler system and getting wet after falling would be the icing on the cake. Good thing that sign is there because we couldn’t imagine going back to school after doing both.
This Sign Cost an Arm, Not a Leg
Workplaces can be dangerous. That is why there are so many signs warning employees of potential hazards. This one takes the cake and if we saw it, we would be extra cautious around that machine.
We want to go home with all of our body parts and just looking at this sign shows us they will be severed into six different pieces. Good luck playing catch with your child if you fail to follow this sign.
I’m a Peacock You’ve Got to Let me Fly
While peacocks are adorable and one of the prettiest birds in the animal kingdom, that doesn’t mean that they won't defend their territory. Their pecks will hurt and they can draw blood.
We wonder how many people got attacked before this zoo had to put up sign warning guests to avoid approaching the precocious peacock. Our guess is above one, but below a lot.
If you have ever traveled to South East Asia, you are bound to run into a few monks. They may be asking for donations or trying to help you, but beware, not all is as it seems.
This sign was posted to warn people about the FAKE Monks in the area. We don’t condone anyone who steals an identity to make a profit off of others. You’ve been warned! So, if you see this sign and a monk in the area, remember they may not be who they say they are.
Cleaning Up Your Mess
City councils hate cleaning up graffiti, but we hope they laughed when they saw this one; we know we did. We can only imagine what the tagger was thinking when he walked past this and the “I have an idea!” lightbulb flashed over their head.
We don’t condone defacing public property, but if you do, try to make the city council laugh. This is one of the very rare occasions where adding to the mess makes it better!
Collecting for Cellists?
We love a good threat sign as much as the next person; “Beware of Dog” signs are one of our favorites, however, we don’t think this sign can follow through on its threats.
One major loophole is they never specify which balls they're referring to. So as long as you play something and consider yourself a player you can collect all the golf balls you want. Happy collecting to all you cellists out there.
It’s no surprise why this family decided to put up a "Beware of Grandma" sign outside their front door; she bit the mailman when they delivered the post the other day.
We also saw her barking from the porch when we walked by, and she did her business in the front yard next to the hydrant. If you walk by this house beware because that grandma both barks and bites.
Three Lefts Make a Right
Sometimes life doesn’t feel like it’s going your way, but this sign is giving us some words of wisdom. We never thought about it that way, and maybe doing something different is all we need to get out of our rut.
Remember if the first left doesn’t work try another and try another. Then maybe those three lefts will make the right you need in your life.
The Lost Boys
If you ever lose anything at this Tustin Dino Dash Race, just head over to this sign and explore away. We know that sometimes we enjoy looking through the lost and found to see if there is anything interesting and you can do that here too.
Lost glasses? Find them there. Need a new blanket? Have at it. Lost your child? Pick the one that looks closest to yours and head out. It will be like yours, but with a new twist.
It’s never a good sign when the sign doesn’t take its own advice. It should be more careful when it crosses a platform with holes in it. Now, if a person comes by there will be no way to warn them of the impending danger.
We hope they see the fate of the "Caution Wet Floor" sign and are careful if they go down the same path.
This Sign Is Pop-ular
"Frozen" was one of our favorite movies; "Frozen 2" ... not so much. So, whenever we see a "Frozen" joke we will stop and laugh. This one is pretty great, and we are glad we are not driving.
Drivers laughing hysterically on the road might cause an accident. Luckily, we just saw it from this picture and can laugh without putting anyone in danger.
I Yam Laughing
"Romain" calm, everybody, this one had us laughing too. We couldn’t walk by this pun and not stop in for a bite to eat. The meal would surely make our heads turnip and our taste buds dance.
It might even make our hearts "beet." If we are lucky we could eat our meal in peas and quiet. Although, a bit of company would be "rad-ish" too. "Lettuce" pray we have a great time at the happy hour.
Long Distance Calling
Everyone is trying to make people laugh these days and that includes churches. This Mountainview Alliance Church got funny with their prayers, but we hope the big guy's wireless plan costs less than the AT&T bill we got last month.
Granted, theirs may only cost an hour of time for full reception throughout the week. But if it doesn’t, do you know if God has a Venmo?
Pick Your Poison
We are genuinely curious about why there is an either-or on this sign. Especially on the farting bit. Even if we were feeding them and they did fart, their butts are on the other side away from us, so we wouldn’t be affected.
Yes, it might smell in the vicinity of where we are standing, but it wouldn’t cause us bodily harm. Biting, on the other hand, does.
This Person Needs Their Six Pack
At rallies, you will see a plethora of signs, and some make you double-glance more than others. This science one does just that at the Raleigh, NC march for science funding.
They are not wrong because a lot of chemistry does go into making beer. If we stop funding science, then we are stopping funding beer makers, and that is not a world we want to live in.
Our Brains Are Amazing
Honestly, we had to ask around what was wrong with the sign because we read it 10 times and couldn’t figure it out. Then fingers were pointed and we put our palms to our faces.
Have fun if you also struggle to find what is funny about this. Our brains are amazing and will “fix” little mistakes when we read information. This makes us wonder what else our brains gloss over that is incorrect.
A Useful Sign
It’s hard to argue with that logic. They are technically correct that if your parents didn’t have kids then you won’t either because for you to exist then they would need to have kids.
We are glad our parents did have us because now we can laugh at this sign and think about other useless information that we can put on a sign. Like “no numbers from 1-10 have the letter "A" in them.”
Drop It Like Its Hotspot
Does this bar really expect us to put down our phones and talk to the people at our table?! We barely have enough social skills to talk to another person on the phone!
That is why we primarily text. We don’t know what we would do if they really didn’t have any wifi. Luckily, our phones have a hotspot option so we can all share TikToks while we drink our beer because who needs to chat in person?
Just a Little Bump-er
Normally, cars display what they really think with bumper stickers, but this driver said screw that and went straight to spray paint. He seems pretty set on his ideals to permanently mark his bumper, but we disagree.
Although we may not know our neighbors, we find a community based on similar interests instead of just proximity. All people need to do is find their group, which includes this person too.
No Soup for You
Somedays, we just want whiskey for lunch. No need to bother with tomato or chicken noodle soup, just pour us a big bowl of Johnny Walker and we will be happy.
Add a side sandwich and we will be in heaven. Is it the most nutritious? No, we will lack some Vitamin A, but on cold days, both will warm our bodies.
Technically, they are not wrong, and it makes us want to visit this fish shop even more. We love sushi, so if we could get the freshest sashimi in the world, sign us up.
We already have the rice steaming and the fish will be the last part. If anyone wants to come they are welcome to. Just bring some booze, and we will have a sushi party late into the night.
Have You Met Bob?
What!? Not all bobcats are named Bob?! Now, are you going to tell us not all jackrabbits are named Jack?! What else are we supposed to call them?
Robert-cats don't have the same ring. I guess we are just going to have to find a new route to drive if this veterinarian's clinic keeps dropping truth bombs on us.
This Sign Does Nothing
Please give us less information by writing more information. This sign doesn’t help anyone at all get to your place of business. We can’t be sitting outside waiting for you to decide to work.
We have our own lives too. Can you please just put your hours of business outside instead of this sign? We just want to order our food and then go home to binge “Altered Carbon” on Netflix. Is that too much to ask?
We can’t argue with this logic. Every time we are in an argument with the wife, she ends up being right even if we have a better argument. No matter what we try, it always seems like she wins.
So next time we need to pee it makes it easy to remember which way to turn. This needs to be standardized because we don’t want to build this muscle memory only to accidentally walk into the wrong bathroom at the next place of business.
They Nailed This One
Not all signs get us laughing, but this one did. They nailed it! We thought they would hammer home their pun and they didn’t screw it up. It pulley-ed us in as soon as we saw it and we gave them credit!
We will file this one away next time we need a good hardware joke. It can fit in our toolbox of other puns next to our other ones. It should measure up next time.
Pee in the Ocean Like Everyone Else
Why would you pee in the sand when there’s the big toilet right next to you? And don’t get mad at us and say, “Oh gross. I would never pee in the water!” You’d be lying and we all know you pee in the water too.
We just try to forget about it when we dive into the pool and know we are swimming in urine and dead skin cells. As much as we would like to believe it, chlorine doesn’t actually disinfect that much.
Baby Trading Station
There was a 50% chance the baby would turn into a cat and a 50% chance it would stay a baby. So while the woman had the baby door closed the child existed in a superposition of half baby and half cat.
Only when she opened the door again did the baby/cat function collapse into a cat. Pretty cool that we learned about quantum mechanics while changing our cat baby.
Aww, how nice! The sign makers went the extra mile to help the cows feel included. They didn’t need to add the stripe, but they did anyway.
Now when we are traveling through that stretch of road we will keep our eyes peeled for the cow. We just hope a dairy cow doesn’t wander into the street nearby because if they did we would be woefully unprepared.
A Soon-to-Be Nudist Cat Cafe
When we first saw this sign, we were curious to know how many people actually took them up on their offer and stripped down to come in without a mask.
We know how good it feels to feel the breeze on our skin, but that’s in the privacy of our backyard, not at the local cat cafe. Good luck to management because they may be in for a rude awakening with this sign.
It’s a Bit Posh
We weren’t thinking of robbing this taxi cab driver for his money, but now that he has 7 Spice Girl cassettes we are reconsidering. We shouldn’t, but do you know how many eBay auctions we have lost trying to get the “Spiceworld” album?!
Too many! Wow, what we would give for that album… Maybe going to jail would be worth it. The cabbie shouldn’t have advertised his possessions if he wasn’t asking for trouble.
They Should Have Seen That Coming
You would think that a prophecy class could see that issue coming, but apparently not. Isn’t that the entire thing of prophecies? Maybe not knowing would be better.
That sure would have helped Oedipus after he heard his prophecy. We know they are not in an ancient Greek tragedy, but still, be nimble so you can flow with events even if you don’t see them coming. That's our sage advice.
Do You Know the Gingerbread Man?
It's unfortunate that he is sitting right beneath that sign. Yes, it made us giggle, but we are not proud of that. He had no choice in his hair color.
He may not even be creepy for all we know. We would need to see the woman’s face to confirm. If she is creeped out by him then we will take it all back and be glad we laughed at it earlier.
They Have Their Back
Even when we are down, it’s nice to know someone has your back, and for this signmaker, it’s their middle finger. It has their back and will stick up for them no matter what.
We hope our middle finger does the same for us because we need it when times get tough, and we all know that during these past couple of years it’s comforting knowing someone will always be there for you.
Historical Heritage Site
We were expecting a historical landmark when we saw the first half of the sign and then were utterly disappointed when we saw the second half.
We guess that is what the creators were going for with the sign, but still, that is mean. This seems like a very British joke to play, and although we are extremely unsatisfied we salute you for the joke played on us and on everyone who has seen this.
Man’s Best Friend
This veterinary clinic must have a comedian working for them because they have joke after joke on their sign. At least we hope this is only a joke too because we thought dogs are man's best friend and we don't want it to only apply when food is not involved.
We love our pets and we think better of them. Hopefully, we don’t ever have to find out how much truth this joke actually has.
Honestly, we are wearier of the shady cat than we are of the dog. Just look at that feline, it looks like it is ready to claw your eyes out if you get too close.
We are glad there was a warning for the cat under the dog sign as well. Otherwise, we might have tried to pet it and come away with two fewer eyes. Plus it’s a black cat which can never mean good luck.
A Warm Cup of Pinot in the Morning
We don’t know if brewing a morning cup of pinot is the best thing to do at 7 am.
If that were the case, we may only last until 11 am before we end up slumped under our desks taking a nap to stave off the afternoon hangover. We would be far less productive if this sign was true. Plus, hot wine doesn't sound all that great.
We love whiskey as much as the next person, and if we are going to drink every day it better be Glenmorangie. This sign is certainly for anyone who enjoys more than just the occasional drink!
Give us some top-shelf liquor because if we are going to become unproductive members of society we might as well enjoy what we are drinking.
You can’t go wrong with either sign if you are looking to spice up your home. Both had us laughing and honestly, you should just get both. Your guests will love it and it will make them laugh too.
Plus, if you get both of them you can't be accused of gender discrimination — this way everyone is equally mocked!
Cleanliness Is Next to Godliness
PSA: Please don't wash your feet in the toilet, people! For that matter please don't wash ANYTHING in the toilet. Do you realize the amounts of bacteria just swimming around in there?
We totally understand wanting to keep our feet clean, but that’s not the way to do it. Especially if it’s a public toilet! Just stick to a shower and a sponge, please!
This sign is great for Halloween and organ collectors. We can already imagine putting it next to the bowl of candy for the trick-or-treaters in October and putting mannequin parts covered in ketchup to sell the illusion.
We are sure it will be a hit with everyone and hopefully get a few laughs. Excuse us as we head to our nearest Halloween store.
No one wants a zombie apocalypse, but we hope zombies know how to read if it ever happens. They will be rendered immobile once they read it and be confined to the graveyards.
We are sure we can mass produce the signs if that is the case and keep the undead army at bay. Fingers crossed it will work because we are not the best fighters when there are no gaming consoles involved.
We love to support local businesses and this sign is just pointing you in the right direction. We wouldn’t want the owners to starve and after hiking in the woods all day this seems like the perfect place to grab a bite to eat.
We hope the restaurant is open 24/7 because if it is then we might have to make it a regular thing for our weekly camping trip.
These are some wise words of advice if we ever did find ourselves in that situation. Granted, we hope it never comes to it but it’s best to take out their long-distance attack first.
After that, you can take out the unicycle because they have the high ground and in the end battle the one with the seltzer bottle. Yes, you may get wet in the process, but bring your goggles. That will negate any effect the water may have.
What a novel concept! Using your turn signals! If we had a dollar for every time we saw a driver not use their signal, we could afford to hire a driver of our own!
Come on people, it is not that hard to pull the lever and tell people which way you are turning. They will be thankful and it will cause fewer honks out there. Unless you want to be a menace to society then continue not signaling.
We know the Brits are known for their dry humor, but this is taking it a little too far. We are told to be cautious, then we are told it is a pointless sign.
Which is it? We need to know! Signs aren’t there to confuse us, they are there to help. If we see more of these signs we don’t know what we would do.
Coffee helps the adult world function, and we don’t know if we would have made it to work without our cup of Jo in the morning. This person took it a bit further than most, and claimed they love coffee more than they like people.
They may have a point. Coffee never disappoints and will always be there for you. Plus they will never tell you they love you and then leave in the middle of the night. Good on you, coffee, for being loyal. Better than most people we know.
Lifesaving Life Jacket
Getting a reminder is helpful, especially if it helps us from drowning. That is exactly what this sign is teaching us. Sometimes we even forget that our body isn’t a buoy when we get in the water.
It would make swimming much easier because right now we sink like a rock. Alas, that’s not the case, and whenever we are on the boat we make sure to put on our life jackets for safety.
Enjoy Your Meal
Putting a picnic area right next to a snake pit isn't the best idea, but hey, we've been wrong in the past. Maybe it’s great entertainment watching them slither past while you eat your ham and cheese sandwich.
Heck, if you have a flute you might be able to charm them. We have seen it in the movies before so it must be real. On second thought, having both of them close may be a great idea.
