A Baker’s Dozen of Funny Signs


Don't you love funny signs?! To me, unusual signs are among the funniest things in the world. You know that some are intentionally funny, but others make you wonder if the sign maker had thought twice about what those seeing the sign would think.

Today I'm posting a baker's dozen of signs for your amusement.

When we were at the Atlanta airport last weekend, we didn't see any signs like these two.

Here's one that hikers and bikers in Florida might be tempted to ignore.

I wonder if the crazy woman is in an RV or a tent.

Some signs don't clear things up at all.

Some signs make things crystal clear.

Some warning signs make me smile or laugh out loud.

What funny signs have you seen lately?

    These are terrific. I think my favorite is the speed limit sign. However, I must ask you – why did you put that Crazy Woman sign in front of my home earlier this evening??

    @Sandrew – I’m glad you enjoyed them. You’ll have to look elsewhere to find the culprit who put that sign in front of your house. I was way too busy to do that!

    There is a sign in Greenville, near the Farmer’s Market, that says: “Have a nice day; just go do it somewhere else.” Sorry, I dont’have a picture of it.

    When Nancy and I moved to Owatonna twenty-five years ago, we noticed that the local hospital had posted a sign outside the emergency room entrance. The sign read, “Don’t even think of parking here.”

    I saw a sign this week that said something like “20% off entire store.” Then in smaller letters underneath, “Some exclusions may apply.” If it’s the entire store, then how can there be exclusions?

    My husband’s and my favorite one when coming over the VA line is “Speed enforced by aircraft.” We have yet to see an airplane chasing a speeding car.

    My favorite was the speed limit sign. I thought it was funny and I appreciated the openness of the town in letting visitors know that it was out to get their money. Such honesty is most refreshing.

    Just read your latest ivman with the signs. I had to smile at “Crazy Woman.” There really is a Crazy Woman Creek out in Wyoming. We were out WY about 11 years ago and I saw the sign for Crazy Woman Creek and had to stop and get my picture taken under it. :-)

    @Sharon – I’ve never seen the sign you wrote about, but it’s a good one! Thanks for sharing it.

    @David – I LOL’d when I read what that sign says outside the Owatonna ER. At least, if they made good on the veiled threat, you wouldn’t have to go far for help.

    @Melanie – I agree – if they say “the whole store,” there shouldn’t be exceptions. But then if they really meant “the whole store,” I would not be prepared to buy the whole store. :-)

    @Michael – I also appreciate the openness of the town in letting visitors know the speed limit is joyfully enforced, but I would say that, whether or not you are warned, if you break the speed limit, the town isn’t necessarily out to get your money. They will just relieve you of money your bad driving habits have made you responsible for having to fork over to them.

    @Candy – It was good to know the whereabouts of the Crazy Woman sign. If I were a woman, I would be hesitant to be photographed by that sign, though. :-D

    Just off campus here at BJU is a drive-thru coffee shop called Liquid Highway. Recently they built a Starbucks right next door. There is a large sign hanging on the Liquid Highway building facing Starbucks that says:

    You are 50 feet
    from better coffee
    Jump the fence

    @Vikki – That’s funny! I really like Liquid Highway, and I thought it was pretty tacky of Starbucks to go in right next door. Keep in mind that I also like some of the coffees at Starbucks, but I really like Liquid Highway. They’ve said that Starbucks has not hurt their business at all … in fact, it seems to have helped it.

    I just recently saw a lovely sign right by the Wade Hampton/Pleasantburg intersection. This might not be the exact wording, but it’s pretty close:

    “Please leave your vehicle in the parking lot, then come in.”

    I wasn’t aware there was another way to do it. :)
