What about the "Signs of the Times"? Useless, Stupid, Dumb and Funny Signs
This useless sign is so a "sign of our times". Other warnings fall into the same category such as when you have to be warned that coffee is hot at a restaurant, or that peanut butter has nuts in it, or that a frisbee may contain small parts?!?, or warnings not to use a hair dryer while asleep or while in the shower! It's hard to know if people have been dumb enough to have tested some of these things out, or if companies have had to go with these extremes to protect themselves.
As you look at these signs, stop and consider if you can think of something witty to say about them. Let me know in the comments, and they might just find their way into the hub! Some of them left me speechless, so your input will be very much appreciated!
Some of these signs are sure to bring a smile to your face.
I personally have never known of traffic to have a calming affect on anyone!
This has to be the . . . I'm at a loss for words. . .
What bodies is it referring to . . . ?
Considering it is D.C., any ideas?
Ever feel like this . . . like you're going in circles and getting no where fast?

This is definitely not one of those signs you see every day! Thank goodness!
punamdharkar added: Hurry! Or we'll uproot you. (Suited for a sign on a Public Toilet?)
I'm not sure if this is where you go if you intend to go streaking . . .
. . . or if you're an alien and it's time to shed your skin. . .
I've called some of these help desks before!
I've also had this feeling after sitting with my laptop for long periods of time.
This is your brain on cell phone!
Lost in the translation?
Probably, Low Voltage Power?
Happyboomernurse suggested, "Cell phones don't work in shower."
An invitation to stop and play a game of chess or checkers?
12. Lost in the translation:
How about, Don't want to go there again?
Duh? Who needs a sign to tell them that?
Unknown conditions ahead?
A sobriety test?
The sign maker failed the test!
A no carjacking sign? You've got to be kidding! I'm sure they'll pay attention to this one everytime!
Makes one wonder what's ahead . . .
Is this one of those Geico squirrels?
If you haven't seen this one, here it is!
I'm sure that we all carry parachutes with us in our cars for just such emergencies!
leroy64 suggested: “Stop James Bond”
Ever stop to wish the engineer had read the sign.
High impact area!
What other kind of powered vehicles would there be?

Warning sign at Stanford University. Taken from traffic engineer and cyclist advocate Robert Shanteau.
The city of San Francisco requested permission for an experimental sign on Market @ Octavia warning cyclists of "prohibited right turns", where motorists illegally turn right on Octavia and often hook cyclists passing on the right, in spite of the presence of signs, stripes and markings, posts and even a concrete median.
Even if it were spelled correctly, what does it mean?
Watch out for big bad cows?
leroy64 suggested: “Cow tipping zone”
Wait, I'm confused . . . I thought green meant go.
The most quiet place on earth!
Who wouldn't want to obey this sign . . . especially if trapped in gridlock!

leroy64 suggested: “Dying at the ski resort is forbidden.”
Not sure we should give some parents any ideas. . . especially after a long hard day at the zoo!

Beware of falling cows?
leroy64 suggested: “I can feed the animals in front of me. Why are there animals living in my mouth?”
leroy64 suggested: “This is really permission to throw stones at other signs.”
How does a dead person pay the fine?
Need I say more?
And most any other body part that got in the way!
Where is it unprohibited?
Now it's your turn!
I'm sure that some of you can come up with some really good sayings to go with these signs. I've numbered them to make it easy for you to designate the sign that you have thought up something witty for. I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with. I'll add them as I get them . . . as long as they meet the qualifying criteria . . .
P.S. I like kittens. So be nice to the kittens. (#6) - first qualifying criteria
