Funny Signs

Updated on June 21, 2013

The below are a collection of some funny and humorous signs that I have came across on the Internet in the past.

To avoid violating copyright, I am posting only the ones that have a Creative Commons license which enables me to re-post the photos here as long as I provide a credit link back to the original photo. I usually find Creative Commons photos using Flickr.

Although humor is somewhat subjective, I do hope you find some of the photos to be funny. If so, please rate up or vote funny on this Hub.


Cockroaches are Getting Cancer

This sign says ...

"Please don't throw your cigarette ends on the floor, the cockroaches are getting cancer."

Now we don't want that, do we?

Apparently, they don't mind having cockroaches on the floor. But cigarettes, they mind.


Employees Motorcycle Parking Only

This sign says ...

"Employees motorcycle parking only"

I see that someone brought in their tricycle with a blue horn. I wonder how old are the employees that work here.


Fat Sheep

Here is a sign that states main entrance goes straight.  But fat sheeps go to the left. 

I didn't know that sheeps can read.  And why does the sign call them fat.


Children Left Unattended

This sign says ...

"warning: children left unattended will be so to the circus."

I guess they need people for the circus.

Hands will scare lobster

Hand Will Scare Lobster

This sign says ...

"Please do not put hands in the water. You scare the lobsters!"

I'm guessing these are lobsters in a restaurant to be eaten. So we don't want to have to eat scared lobsters.

I wouldn't want to put my hands in there anyways. Their claws are bigger than mine.


Animals Could Eat You

This sign says ...

"Do not stand, sit, climb or lean on fences. If you fall, animals could eat you and that might make them sick."

Not only do we not want to scare the lobster, we don't want to make the animals sick when they eat you.


Gone Tanning

Swimwear shop in Milan Italy is closed.

Signs says owner "Gone Tanning".


Not Public Toilet Sign

This sign says ...

"please do not use this area as a public toilet"

Apparently this particular area is used as a public toilet often enough that this sign has to be placed there.

Suggestion: it would probably help if the municipality put in a public toilet nearby.


Funny Church Sign

This church is going high-tech.

It says ...

"wireless access to God with no roaming fee."

With many places offering free WiFi these days, some churches are too.


Don't Talk and Drive

This sign should also have a big X across it.

Because using cell phones while driving removes part of your brain.


Question Mark Sign

What is that sign supposed to mean?

Apparently the sign does not know either.


No stealing cars please

This sign shows a person breaking into a car -- with a red slash across it.

For those who may not know, that means: "do not break into cars".


Beware of Cow Eating Cars

This sign shows a car with a cow.

I don't know if it is the car that hit the cow or the cow is eating the car.


Green means stop

That's funny, I thought green means "go".

Then why is that traffic light showing a "green" stop gesture?


Cemetery Drive Leads to Dead End

Look at these two signs. It shows that Cemetery Drive leads to a dead end. Need I say more?


Cheating the Other Guy

This sign says ...

"We Cheat The Other Guy and Pass The Savings On To You!"

Gee. I'm not sure to say "Thanks" or "No Thanks".


Make Left?

This traffic signs says "Make Left". But the arrow is pointing to the right. I guess they meant the other left.


Altered Sign of Bird

The top sign is supposed to be a speed bump. And the bottom sign is supposed to be bird crossing -- or ostrich crossing.

But someone re-drew the top sign to show a dead bird -- marking it as "after". Whereas the standing bird is "before".

You get the picture.


Run away wheelchair

It is bad enough that the person in the wheelchair is rolling downhill out of control. But it is also about to go into the mouth of an crocodile. Or is that an alligator? Either way, it doesn't look good.


Beware of What?

This sign says ...

"Beware of, Well... Just Beware"

Beware of what?


Don't Even Think of Parking Here

Alright, there is already a sign that says "No Stopping Anytime". But below that is another one that says ...

"Red Zone: Don't Even THINK of Parking Here"


Fasten Seat Belts Restrooms

What kind of restrooms are these?

It says ...

"Rest Rooms, Please Fasten Seat Belts and Have a Safe Trip Home"

I guess this should be two separate signs. But then it wouldn't be funny.


Don't Climb on the Lion

After the fasten seat belt for restroom sign, this next safety sign says ...

"For your own safety, please do not climb on the lion."

Climb on a lion? Don't worry, I wasn't planning on it.


Falling Can be Deadly

The next sign warns of a dangerous drop off. It says ...

"Falling can be deadly"

No kidding. I'll stay on the trail.


Sign with Sharp Edges

This next safety sign says ...

"Caution. This sign has sharp edges. Do not touch the edges of this sign."

Looks like the sign is more dangerous than useful.

Oh wait. There is some fine print at the bottom. It says, "Also, the bridge is out ahead". And a no-walking and no-car symbols on either side.


Person Flying Over Car

Yikes. Sign indicates to beware of fast moving cars, otherwise one might get hit and fly over the car as shown in the sign.


Exit and Pass Out

This sign says ...

"Exit and Pass Out"

I hope not.


This Way to Peculiar

This sign point this way to peculiar.

Apparently there is a town called Peculiar Missouri. Now, it is not so funny.


Sign to Rica Hell Hotel

I guess to peculiar is better than to where this sign is pointing to.


Elderly People Crossing

Sign showing elderly people crossing. Oh, that's cute.
