The Signs Are Everywhere


A long-time favorite of readers of this blog is funny signs. Today's post is ten signs that have accumulated in my sign folder. Some funny signs are obviously planned or contrived, but others are deliciously accidental, totally due to human error.

I will post most of the signs without comment, letting the signs speak poorly for themselves.

Planning Ahead


We're in the time of the school year where we teachers are doing lots of planning for the semester and, really, for the whole school year. Planning out a semester's worth of work is harder than it might seem, to those who have never taught. You keep evaluating and re-evaluating whether you can get it all done or if you have enough, if you've left out anything vital, and on and on it goes — particularly if you have a new course or a new textbook.

As I am currently working through the final details of my course syllabi, I thought it would be nice to take a look at some pictures of examples of poor planning or poor execution of good plans. This could also be titled "You had only one job!" but we'll consider mostly the planning aspect.

Did you know that they have schools to teach you to plan?! Even at a school where they teach architects to plan buildings, things don't always work out....

College of Architectural Planning

The plans for this drain were clearly too lofty.

Bad Drainage

Here's a different kind of drainage problem.

Another Baker’s Dozen of Signs


Some new signs have come my way, and so, I must share them. 🙂

A family in our daughter's neighborhood had a yard sale a few months ago. Here's the sign they placed in their front yard.

Ever Think Must Go

Did you ever think? If so, it must go!

This next sign shows the value of including all the words in a message.

Always More Signs


It seems as if there is no end of great signs out there. Today I'm posting the latest ones that have come my way. Some are funny, others not so much. Enjoy!

I'll start out with several that are rather ironic.

Entrance Only - Do Not Enter

Most dogs I know would not find the dog run in the next picture long enough.

It’s a Sign of Something


This is exam week at the university, and ain't nobody got time to make or read a long blog post. So this will be short and sweet — three sign-related pictures.

This past weekend a friend was telling my wife and me about his recent mailbox dilemma. He needed to replace the post for his mailbox, but he wasn't going to be able to do it before the mail truck was to arrive. Their mail carrier won't deliver if the mailbox is just sitting on the ground. He sent me a picture of his "quick fix" to that day's problem.

Redneckish Mailbox

My friend was accused of being a redneck, of all things! I say that necessity is the mother of invention.

Recently my wife and I explored a little town we have not been to in a long time, Saluda NC. One of the shops that was not open that day had an interesting sign in the window.
