Signs That Gave Everyone A Good Laugh

Signs are excellent tools for a multitude of reasons. Not can they be used as a universal language, but they can provide direction, warn of danger, provide information, and more. However, one thing is certain: there’s nothing better than a funny sign. Whether it’s intentional or not, people can’t get enough of them and can induce a chuckle even from someone having the worst day. Don’t believe it? Check out these hysterical signs that you can’t help but laugh at.

What A Deal!

If you enjoy washing and vacuuming senior citizens, this is the place for you! For the low price of $15.95, you can wash and vacuum the elderly to your heart’s content, a low price that you won’t find anywhere else.

But in all seriousness, whoever created this sign probably should have had it looked over by someone else because it’s completely misleading. We just hope that nobody actually stopped in looking to wash and vacuum senior citizens.

Who Is Bob?

We’re not sure who or what Bob is, but they must be pretty formidable if someone spent the time and money to make a custom warning sign. Is it a cranky old man, a vicious dog, a rare pet? It could be any of these things.

What’s concerning is the lack of fencing next to the sign. If it’s an animal, it won’t have any problems walking right out of this property, and then the warning sign isn’t even needed.

Must be A Scary Hill

If this hill is so scary that people lose control of their bladder, it must be quite the experience. People riding their bike and see this sign might have reservations about continuing forward.

Either that or they might want to take care of their business on the side of the road before taking the plunge. We hope everyone who rides down this hill checked their brakes beforehand or else things might not end well at all.

They Can’t Fine You If You’re Dead

Instant Death sign

We think that the warning of instant death by touching the wires might be enough to keep most people away. There aren’t too many people with a brain that would be willing to call out the Newcastle Tramway Authority’s bluff and touch the wires.

However, in case the danger of death isn’t convincing enough for some people, they added in a $200 fine as a further warning. We’re willing to bet that someone who touched the wires didn’t die, so they needed to punish them somehow, and that was fining them $200.

Bloodthirsty Birds

We’re not sure it’s the pigeon that’s going to bite off your finger or if you’re caught feeding them the authorities do. Either way, it’s probably a good idea to keep yourself and especially your food far away from these birds unless you want to have one less digit.

Nobody wants to go out to eat and end up in the hospital on account of losing a finger, so we advise that you heed this sign.

Not The Best Sign Placement

Bird sanctuary sign

Hey, we love that Elk City is a bird sanctuary, but maybe having a KFC establishment in sight isn’t the best way to spread the message. Even though that isn’t what they mean by a bird sanctuary, it’s pretty contradictory that it’s in plain view behind the other sign.

On top of that., KFC isn’t necessarily known for caring for their chickens, which makes this sign all that more ironic. We wonder if the people who work at the sanctuary eat there too.

Heads Up!

We want to know where this sign is located so we can avoid this place by all means. We don’t know about you, but having a full-grown cow fall on top of the car is not how we want to go out. What would people say at the funeral?

At least they have a sign in order to warn people so someone can look out for falling cows while another person drives. If you’re driving alone, you’ll just have to hope for the best, or it could be an udder disaster.

Might Work On Some People

Sometimes, people just ignore signs because for some reason they think it doesn’t apply to them. These are the kind of people that this sign might actually work on. Knowing that they’ll end up with wet paint on them is the only way to stop them from doing what they want.

Of course, this sign might also backfire, with people checking to see if there’s actually non-drying paint. Now, something we would like to see.

The Sign Says It All

Anyone in a wheelchair that sees this sign might start having second thoughts about checking out the crocodile exhibit. If this a legitimate concern for this zoo, they should probably close down the exhibit to make it accessible to everyone so people in wheelchairs don’t have to fear for their lives.

The real question is how many people this happened to that led staff to put up a sign. Could you imagine rolling towards a hungry crocodile downhill with no way to stop? No thank you.

Stilettos Beware!

The number of people wearing stilettos only to break their heel at this exact spot must have been so large that somebody finally brought it up to the city. So, instead of fixing what we assume is uneven ground, they figured that a warning sign would solve the problem.

We’re willing to bet that it didn’t since people still have to tread on the treacherous ground. Do you expect them to take off their shoes? Not only is breaking a heel an annoyance, but it can also result in serious injury!

A Legitimate Concern

Watch for penguins sign

While this sign may seem a bit ridiculous, you know that anyone who reads it is going to be thoroughly checking that there aren’t any penguins in the vicinity before getting in their car. Nobody wants to hurt an innocent penguin!

That’s something you’d never be able to forgive yourself for. All we do know, however, is that we need to get to wherever penguins are walking around the parking lot as soon as possible.

A Fine Use Of Taxpayers Money

Sharp sign

To us, this sign looks like a hazard more than anything, and it’s not because it has sharp edges. This is forcing people to try and read a sign that makes no sense, most likely while they’re driving.

This is only going to confuse them, further distracting them from the road. if you look closely, in the fine print, you’ll find the true purpose of the sign which is “also, the bridge is up ahead.” Maybe put that in the bold lettering?

The Definition Of All-Inclusive

Recently, some bathrooms have been modified into bathrooms that are not labeled according to gender. Although it has stirred up some controversy, the people that own this bathroom don’t care what your gender identity is, or even if you’re human, as long as you wash your hands.

We can’t blame them either, not washing your hands after using a public bathroom is a disservice to anyone that you come into contact with. Get with the program people, washing your hands isn’t that hard!

You Have My Attention

Any sign that clearly shows a person being launched into the air after getting hit by a car should probably put you on edge. We don’t know about you, but we’d be sure to follow all of the traffic signs and look both ways before crossing the street at all times.

Clearly, there’s been an issue with people being struck by cars in the past, to the point where they needed to install a sign. Don’t become a statistic, pay attention.

Every Bar Needs This

If you’ve ever driven a car in an area where people are regularly drinking, whether it’s a string of bars or the neighborhoods near a college campus, you’ll know that it can be a pretty hairy situation. People that are intoxicated tend to be less than predictable and don’t always think about looking both ways before crossing the street or even looking at all.

Unfortunately, you don’t always have the luxury of where drunk people, so this sign can help. Not only could it help prevent an accident, but it’s also hilarious.

Now That’s Good Marketing

Zombie sign

There’s nothing that sells quite like fear, and this Hampton Inn & Suites is taking advantage of that. It looks like this town was experiencing a zombie apocalypse scare, so they are taking full advantage of the situation.

Even if people aren’t necessarily afraid of zombies, this sign is clever enough that if someone needed a hotel, they might stay here because they appreciated the sign. We think that whoever is the head of their marketing deserves a little raise for this one.

One-Stop-Shop

Three funny signs

For people that are really down on their luck, this might be the perfect little shopping mall for them. It’s even in the right order, so you can take care of all your errands in one fell swoop.

First off, you start out by filing for bankruptcy, then head over to sign your divorce papers, and finally to pick up some alcohol to drown your sorrows. If someone was smart, they’d buy all three establishments and turn them into one big store of sadness.

Blame The Owner, Not The Dog

Pick up after your dog sign

There’s nothing more annoying then when people don’t pick up after their pets. It’s a common courtesy that doesn’t take much effort and shows respect to everyone else around, as well as the environment. This sign is a friendly reminder for people to pick up after the dog.

However, it’s different because it leaves a message for the pups too. We’re not entirely sure what it means, but the dogs most likely do. It also can’t be that bad if it says good dog at the end.

On Top Of The World

By the looks of it, the best day you’ve ever had probably isn’t even comparable to the high that this guy is on. If he took the time to make his own “Juts Divorced” sign only to drive around in a Viking helmet, he must be feeling pretty darn good.

While some people might take a divorce hard, it certainly isn’t this guy. He looks like he’s ready to take the bull by the horns and start living life once again.

So Many Questions

Do not shoot deer from motel sign

If you find yourself at a place where the management has to remind the customers not to shoot deer from the motel, you might want to find a new place to stay the night. Not only might you be woken up several times in the night by a hunting rifle, but the fact that people have to be reminded might make you uneasy.

Clearly, some people don’t appreciate this rule, as there are visible bullet holes in the sign. What is this, the Wild West?
