Something tells me the second one in the first post and Demonhood’s are the only real signs in this thread; the rest look too much like ’shopped pics.

I don't have a picture, but I saw a sign in Maryland once that said...

"Hidden entrance 1/4 mile ahead"

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

well, considering high ground is several miles away and that RUNNING from a tsunami 20ft tall isn't going to help much, it's more funny than crazy.

There was a hotel in Austin whose lighted name had a few letters that didn't work. In bright red you could drive by Riverside and I-35 and see "RAMAD IN " to your east.... Unfortunately I didn't have a camera so I didn't get a picture.

I was at a zoo in North Carolina and saw a sign on a gravel path that connected two concrete paths.

It said, "PATH CLOSED, STAY ON PATH"

Tesla - Signs Lyrics


(Arthur Thomas)
[Originally by The Five Man Electrical Band)

And the sign says "Long-haired freaky people need not apply"
So I put my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why
He said you look like a fine outstanding young man, I think you'll do
So I took off my hat, I said "Imagine that, huh, me working for you"

[Chorus:]
Signs, signs, everywhere there's signs
****in' up the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign

And the sign says "Anybody caught trespassing will be shot on sight"
So I jumped the fence and I yelled at the house
Hey! What gives you the right!
To put up a fence and keep me out, or to keep Mother Nature in
If God was here, he'd tell it to your face, man, you're some kind of sinner

[Chorus]

Oh, say now mister, can't you read
You got to have a shirt and tie to get a seat
You can't watch, no you can't eat, you ain't supposed to be here

And the sign says "You got to have a membership card to get inside" - uh!

[Solo]

And the sign says "Everybody welcome, come in, kneel down and pray"
But then they passed around a plate at the end of it all
And I didn't have a penny to pay
So I got me a pen and a paper and I made up my own ****in' sign
I said, "Thank you Lord for thinking 'bout me, I'm alive and doing fine", oh

[Chorus 2x]

Shame you didn’t call it “residentEvil’s stick”. Would have opened so many more jokes of the crudest (and thus best) kind.

Only mentally.

Good to know you’re reading my thoughts now. That should be lots of fun for you.

I was a little disturbed by the goat and the butter churner, to be honest.

I was at a hotel in Colorado that had a sign in the bathroom that said...

"Only toilet paper goes in the toilet. Please dispose of all other waste material in the trash can."

That's paraphrased but very close. I was so close to taking a big dump in the trash can, but decided it was probably a bad idea.

My sig is 1 pixel too big.

That’s the exact opposite of the temporary toilet trailer thingies they’ve put up in our yard during the renovation they’re undertaking at the moment—ours say, “Please don’t put anything in the toilet that you haven’t eaten” (also paraphrased). So no toilet paper (unless you eat it first, ew!) and no peeing?
