    Okay, so maybe this isn't quite as funny, but it makes me smile every time I drive (well, ride...) by it.

    There's a place on University Ave (a main street) in Berkeley, called "The Way Christian Center," which I find amusing because the way it's laid out implies to me that these people are, like, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay Christian, dude.

    Or maybe it's just me.

    Hehe I think its funny too!  Once I saw a huge sign as we drove pass a wall, it read MAN PARK.  And lo! Behold, it was a cemetery.

    Sorry, but I think its funny.  Doesn't take much to get me laughing, I guess.  I received a similar joke email a few weeks ago that had photographs attached.  Wish I could find it (long deleted) so I could show you the photo of a sign in the Mid-Western U.S. that says:

    Open Range.  Someone had left an old oven below the sign with the door ajar.

    ;-)
