Funny Pictures: Absurd Signs

Updated on April 20, 2008

Signs of the times

Signs are meant to be straightforward announcements. With a little cleverness - or sometimes a little lack of cleverness - they can become comedic works of art. Enjoy the first in a series of Hubs on absurd signs. I hope it makes your day a little brighter.

I'm currently continuing a series of these societal absurdities. If you have a picture of a funny sign, that:

  • isn't offensive
  • you think people will enjoy, and
  • isn't owned by someone else (check for a website logo)

feel free to share a link to it in the Comments area and I'll consider adding it to the series. I hope you've enjoyed these; there are links to other Hubs in this series right here. Enjoy. =)

      Bwah-ha-ha! Love it, Pam. I'm a big fan of glitched-up ads, labels and signs, myself.

      This will never make it into a new Hub because I don't have a one-image thing for it... you know those food donations we ship to Africa? To overcome the language barrier, they usually have a picture on the label of the jar of what's inside. You know, if it's strained carrots, there's a picture of a carrot... if it's peas there'll be pictures of peas... well, evidently this was all working out just fine, but the natives were having a real tough time figuring out the Gerber baby food.

      I always wanted to make a coffee table book of funny but real signs. One of my favorites was a local window store that for a time had all their shop windows closed up with concrete blocks and the slogan on the sign said "The Window People!"

      Thanks, Susan! Yeah, I got the idea last night and as far as I know it's original on the Hubs. I thought a lot of people would enjoy it. Looks like I was right. =)

      Ooh, I had a few pictures of funny signs in the Philippines. I'll try to find them and see if they don't have copyright.

      I like this idea of yours, Satori. Everybody needs a laugh. :D
