The Signs Are Everywhere

Danger Culturally Sensitive

It's been a while since I posted the signs that have come my way. From people's remarks and the comments to posts with signs, I think many others share my enjoyment of funny signs. This post has a couple of signs that the faint of heart may not enjoy. They aren't terrible to most readers, but I thought it best to let the fragile know there are a few signs that might disturb. 🙂

I have actually ended up with quite a few food-related signs in my sign folder. At least, I think this first one is about food....

Fresh Brats

This next one reminds me of when I hear the same ad on TV several minutes apart.


Someone did some creative graffiti on this sign.

Pie Area

This next one is ... um ... interesting.

Live Poultry

I can identify with this one.

Drink Coffee Protect

This billboard makes me smile.

Diamond Shreddies

Some readers took this next one for me on a recent road trip. Now tell me again what road we're on....

What Road

Someone with a good sense of humor captured this moment.

Stander Street

Do you ever miss a road sign because of foliage? Either the tree/bush needs to go, or the sign needs to be moved.

Right Turn Only

Someone told me about some ads that a funeral home in Germany has put up in subways.

Naeher Bestattung

I guess, for the sake of tourists, they have the same ads in English.

Closer Funeral

I'll end with a couple that contain some bathroom humor. This next one reminds me of one section of my post on the WC.

WC Long Stay

I don't know what to say about this next one.

No Dumping

Half of my readers will like this next sign.

Women Right

I'll end this post with a little shameless "Poppie" news....

One sign that I'm getting older is that I keep accumulating grandchildren. Early Monday morning we heard the great news that a sweet little granddaughter had been born to Mark and Katie. Little Avery Nichole weighed in at 7 lbs 12 oz and was 20 ½ inches long. Both mother and baby are doing well and hope to come home from the hospital today.

Here's our little keeper.

Avery Nichole

Here's their whole family.

I hope that this blog post has delivered some laughs and smiles.

A baby first laughs at the age of four weeks. By that time his eyes focus well enough to see you clearly.

    Hi Mr Loach,

    I just got back from a trip to Tasmania, and while there, I saw a sign directing traffic to the town of Nowhere Else. I thought of you, got a picture, and will send it through shortly. I have a few more funny pics to send you from my recent adventures. Thanks for the laughs and news on your family. Avery is a darling!

    I was born and raised in Wisconsin, so when I saw the one advertising the fresh homemade brats, it took me a bit to figure out what the problem was 🙂

    By the way, congrats Grandpa, you’re catching up to us. We have 9 grandkids.

    The Interstate/Highway signs that are so confusing are located on a relatively short stretch of road in western Virginia. I didn’t take the picture but recognized the route numbers since I traveled through there a couple months ago. I think we can blame having to go north to go south on the mountainous terrain in the area.

    Congratulations on the baby!:-)

    My husband and I made the mistake of viewing these pictures while sharing an RV with my sister and her family. While we were all supposed to be in our beds! It was very hard to keep our snickering to a quiet minimum so the rest of the family couldn’t hear us on the other end of this small RV! Hilarious!
