I read signs all of the time. I find them in some of the weirdest places. I've found a few gems and figured if I've found some funny ones, some people here may have as well.

It's about signs, people.

The signs you find at the turnpike bathrooms:
photo zAVcoUaPFve7371D35IeRF9lJI5tQHU5lvHPde8iaKMsSxTTJ_zpsglrzcaac.jpg This one is from Pennsylvania.

The signs that you find when stopping at the turnpike visitor centers:
photo 120816_0000_zps7f268vsg.jpg Another Pennsylvania gem. Yes, my husband went hunting for the rattlesnakes they warned about. He didn't find any.

The crappy, homemade signs hung at work:

The response you may leave after you rip said sign down:
photo 130320_0000_zps7pudzgpt.jpgMy coworker has a problem with putting signs up everywhere. She stopped for a while after this one.

Yet another sign providing a lovely little factoid:
photo DSCN6239_zpsighjiy0c.jpg Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh. Seems that we find all of the weird ones in PA!

Keep an eye out. Entertain us with what you find.

    Artistic treatment of a road signs from Firenze, Italy.
    Six billions solitudes together alone

    Not a real fan
  • I was visiting Toronto about 8yrs ago and saw this sign and took a pic on my phone. (Not my pic. It is from google)
    It was funny to me and I emailed the pic to my parents.

    These signs are all over in SoCal.. They start at about 20 miles from the Mexico Border. We never realized how funny they really are Gil we left SoCal, and no one believed us! So I took this pic to show the Joplinites, that yes, we really had these signs... I love how they're just dragging the kid.. Who's just hanging on for dear life on the sign!

    What the hell is that supposed to be warning people against? Do you often have random families running amok on your roads?

    ^^ Peeps who are running the border, yes.

    I love the signs so far! Elderly crossing, people dragging children and fun signs from Italy. Can't wait to see what else you guys come up with!

    I think this could be a sign when those fast moving FIRES hit S. California. So watch out for fast moving families crossing, running in your roads.

    This was at the beginning of the four mole driveway of Flash Ranch where I worked for a year in San Angelo Tx. Yes.. They laughed at me for making them stop so I could photograph it!! I couldn't replace the pic I'd list of this. So my good friend Brandon sent me it again!

    Yes, 2 hour parking unless you have a zone 6 permit. No parking west of the sign, basically past the sign. No parking during the dates listed, basically during Husky games.

    Hey, it's free, so no complaints. :)
