Strange, Silly and Outrageous Signs

Published by lanne in Humor

We have all come across signs that are a little misleading, but these are sure to leave you completely puzzled.

The phrase “You can`t get there from here” does not come to mind at this intersection. It seems that you can get EVERYWHERE from here.

Does this mean that you have to be a senior citizen, or that you must be dressed in vintage clothing to park here?

Even with all the snow that falls here every year, I was never warned as a child to watch out for skiing houses.

What a time saver. This a much better idea than warning drivers to drive slowly and be on the lookout for penguins as they are driving.

I am at a total loss as to how I am going to get my stringer of fresh bunnyfish home. I swear that sign wasn`t there the last time I went fishing.

WOW! With a description like this, I`m sure they`ll find the right owner in no time.

I`m sure that there is another sign close by that reads “Do not use common sense”

Jumping over cars in flaming wheelchairs is strictly prohibited in this area.

What a bargain! It would be cheap at twice the price!

I can`t get to the establishment, but I can park as long as I like. I think I`ll take a picnic lunch and go sit here for the afternoon.

At last!! A sign that is not misleading.

    Hi Lanne, I found your commentary very funny too! The sitting on the toilet sign- there are a large body of people and races that do it this way but our Western style toilets are not really suited, but that does not stop people trying I am told. I used to have a friend who worked in hotels and had to clean up!

    It is amazing what people will pay to have a sign maker print, isn’t it? Good job.

    Funny signs! That parking (free or not) is really cheap. We pay over £5.00 for 2 hours’ parking where I live.

    the penguin warning is specifically for you to look under your car when pulling away, after having been parked up for a while. Not during driving

    the first signpost is in Japanese, and it seems to be stating the various shops in the area.
