These funny signs make us think: who put them there, are the pictures faked. Is the resulting picture funny, offensive, or just plain stupid.
Silly Warning Signs
When it comes to safety you would think that sign designers would take more care. Wrong.
Warning: Jumping into toxic waste does not give you super powers. Often it's the absurdity of these notices that makes them so humorous
Danger - Hazardous fumes (fair enough)
Customers should use push buttons (fair enough) To open AUTOMATIC doors? (Silly Billy)
A classic amusing notice. Drink and drive golf range. Even the hoarding looks drunk!
Drink - Don't Drive
We've been wondering who creates these joke signs.
A daft notice if ever I saw one ... but it gets worse ...
Crisis Counseling - Temporarily Out of Service
Funny Misspelt Signs
Jeff Deck and Benjamin Herson, have launched a campaign to correct spelling and grammar mistakes on American signs. Depending on your point of view, the best, or worst example is on the Watchtower at the Grand Canyon, it promises: 'emense westward view of the Grand Canyon'.
Officials instead of being embarrassed, put the wonderful spin on the mistake by claiming 'a unique historical object of irreplaceable value'. At first we thought they were talking about the Grand Canyon, but no they were defending the spelling of 'emense'.
Amazingly to our way of thinking, the pair were charged with vandalism for trying to rectify the spelling error on the Desert View Watchtower at the Grand Canyon. At worst they should have had a caution, but we are staggered to discover they were fined $3,035 and banned from national parks for a year.
"We're not going after people in a self-righteous manner, like fashion police. Or trying to make them look stupid," Deck said. "Instead, we're addressing specific errors like confusing 'its' for 'it's' or 'you're" for 'your.' Finding and correcting these, even every once in a while, is incredibly satisfying."
To date Jeff and Benjamin have identified 231 signs with spelling or punctuation mistakes. Examples include, birthday candell's. However, the old chestnuts of confusion between their, there and they're feature strongly.
Will and Guy feel sure that Jeff and Benjamin would have something to say about these particular banners: Make English America's offical Language. Let us hope that the gentleman in the middle is better at calculating math than he is at spelling 'arithmetic '.
Funny pictures and pointless signs give us a laugh, but we ponder how much they cost in time for replacements.
