Safety Signs and Laughs

No, I am not saying that Safety Signs are a joke. Nor am I recommending you ignore a safety sign when you see one. I am just saying that every once in a while, you see a sign that just makes you laugh! Especially with how much we travel, our family gets to see a lot of different signs. Of course there are the normal billboards and business signs that have improper spelling, or a lack of punctuation, so they just cause a laugh (and often get on my nerves-with my Mom being a former English teacher, these things really annoy me for some reason). Like the t-shirt that C just found the other day and showed everyone; "Can We Eat Grandma?" And underneath, "Can We Eat, Grandma? Commas Save Lives!". That was funny! One of my personal favorites is the old "Warning: I can make to the fence in 2.8 seconds. Can you?".

Of course, traveling is not the only way our family gets to enjoy funny signs. The children love to look at those books that just have picture after picture of humorous signs. I don't know how many times we'll be in a bookstore, and I find them paging through one of these. Or, when we're taking a trip, they bring along a book and think they have to read each sign out loud! Some are funny, some amusing, and others downright hilarious. For example, the sign at a Tramway stop that reads "Touching Wires Causes Instant Death: $200.00 Fine". Really? And how do they collect the fine when you're instantly dead?!  

One other sign that I haven't seen myself, but found it online, is the one pictured below. "Be Careful: This machine has no brain. Use Your Own". Talk about a great way to encourage safety at work!  

The number of signs that can cause you to laugh are innumerable, but here are a couple more for you to enjoy, get a laugh out of, and share with friends. The last one, about hitchhikers, I have actually seen in a town about an hour away. Oh, and if you have seen any funny signs lately, please share them with us in the comments!

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