Theme Day - Funny Signs

 
You have been warned!
I love signs - the funnier the better. I remember seeing headlines in the newspaper - "Police station toilet stolen. Police have nothing to go on" and ouside a country shop, "We buy junk and sell antiques"

Today's Quote: The trouble with our age is that it is all signpost and no destination - Louis Kronenberger.

Glad to have you back in blogland. They are great signs, sometimes there are signs about that I'm sure no one has actually read out load before writing.

I always like signs about unattended children. I saw one in a cafe about giving them espresso and sending them home.

Wow! I anticipated that most of the funny signs today would be misspellings or silly puns--but these are laugh-out-loud funny. Well done!

Ann said...

The unattended children one gets my vote.
