Ordering A Sign?

Do any of my readers have a sign in their front yard? Something to add a decorative touch to the lawn, or maybe some humor as well? We do a lot of traveling, and one thing we enjoy is catching some funny signs in yards, and in front of businesses. Some times these are meant to be humorous, but we also get a laugh out of all the grammatical or spelling errors on signs! My mom was an English teacher, so that is one of my pet peeves-especially when you see a restaurant or some other place of business with a misspelled word, or totally incorrect grammar or punctuation on their sign! 

One of my all time favorite yard signs is the one about "I can make it to the fence in 2.8 seconds. Can You?" with a picture of a dog (usually something like a Rottweiler or German Shepherd) on it. I've actually thought about placing an order online to get one of these; it's a great way to let people know you have a guard dog, and have a laugh at the same time! Here is another guard-dog related sign that I thought was pretty funny too.


Of course, even if you don't travel, take road trips, or venture outside your local area, you can still find some hilarious signs. Did you know there are actually books devoted to funny signs? Yeah, we have a few of them-and usually the funniest are the ones not intentionally done for humor! Like the time we pulled into a gas station, and simply because the huge sign was missing a decimal point, they were advertising pizza for 200 dollars a slice! It was hilarious, and yes we posted pictures on Facebook :) 

Here is another sign that someone who had a pretty good sense of humor came up with. Note: I do not condone vandalism or graffiti, I'm only sharing this for the humor.



How about you? Have you seen any funny signs recently, in your hometown or maybe on a trip? Please feel free to share in the comments, as long as it's clean and family friendly!

This is a sponsored post however, all the points and views are my own.
