    What Is the funniest signage you've ever seen?

    If you do not have a picture, then please tell us what the sign said to the best of your recollection, as well as the context for the sign. Inflammatory or derogatory posters/signs not welcome here. We're talking official signage that's truly hilarious!

    Far be it from me to pass by a humorous sign without making note of it!  Funny thing, Yves, I just saw some really funny signage this past week.  One was actually in front of a church:  "If your dog doesn't like someone, you probably shouldn't EITHER!"   I like that one because there's no denying dogs have that ability to know a creep when they meet one!!  LOL
    One other sign that really cracked me up, I saw hanging in the lobby of a Day Spa.  I can't imagine anyone not laughing at it!!  "Unattended children will be given an espresso and a free puppy."  LOL...
    This is a great idea for the Q&A!!

      OMG! I might actually enjoy a sermon from that Pastor. So funny. The DaySpa sign sounds like something you'd see in France. Espresso indeed. Hahaha. I can just see the French children, who are taught about good food, etc., from the crib. Hilarious!

    We have an eclectic back porch, (some call it the Cracker Barrel porch) we have many signs on display, collected from many places.
    One of my favorites... [Eat Here - Get Gas] and another...[Trespassers will be shot - Survivors will be shot again]
    Definitely not P.C., but they are authentic signs from the Past!

      I think I may have seen an "Eat Here - Get Gas" sign, back in the day. Why do I suddenly feel ancient? Ha!

    When I was growing up our next door neighbors had this classic hanging on the side rail of their backyard pool. I used to think it was the funniest thing ever:

    WELCOME TO OUR OOL
    NOTICE THERE IS NO "P" IN IT
    PLEASE KEEP IT THAT WAY!

      Hahaha! Good luck with that! Whenever I see little kids in a pool, I can't help but notice that they NEVER get out unless someone reminds them to "go pee where you're supposed to." Good one, FatFreddyCat!

      Keith's sign reminds me of the one that hung on our neighbor's fence around his pool.  "We don't swim in your toilet. Please don't PEE in our pool!"  I had forgotten that one!  LOL

      All I know is that I always climbed out of the pool to "go." Not so sure about some of the others, especially my naughty cousins. Ha!

    I saw a car plate that said if you are close enough to read this, you need to back the hell up. Lol

    Yves,

    I spent time in the Philippines and there always seemed to be a sign that didn't seem to be quite right but made complete sense.

    My favorite was:

    "No Parking At All Times."

      LOL!! That reminds me of some signage from Japan that David Sedaris mentioned in his book. The sign said, "In the Event You Should Be Engulfed in Flames."  It went on to explain what to do in the event of a fire. Ha! Can you imagine?
