This first sign greets customers at a garden store.

The second one was outside the drug store.

The Far side has fun with signs.

The second one is from a charity run.

Big savings at the grocery store.

This company is having fun with the British security people.

Toxic waste can be fun.

The folks who own the new SUV, want us to live simply.

This toilet barely works. 15 seconds is a long time to push the awkwardly placed button on the side.

Get a new toilet. I'm pretty sure that the owner could afford a new one. This giant sun room is about 1/5 of their castle on the beach.

The add is for a plastic surgery business. A rivet on the bus, makes it appear that the model has a wart on her face.

The bathroom signs are at a place that serves alcohol. It seems likely that some patrons will choose the wrong one.

Only in Maine (this is a REAL sign/store).

My wife went to the Boutiques to find a wedding dress for our wedding and hardly got an acknowledgement, but when she went here, they doted over her and actually ended up buying her wedding dress here...though I did not need beer to wed her, nor put a gun to her head to say "I do"

I think they close the restaurant when the last customers leave. They are closed between 2 and 5 p.m. . They reopen at 5 and continue until some later date.

Hm, I did not know that "closing" was a time! Haha!

We've actually has a mountain lion traveling across the 'volcano' on our property and heard that it ate the dog next door. We call them 'mountain lions' and not 'cougars' for the reason in the first sign!

I did a job for a retired policeman who worked in Yellowknife Northwest Territories. A quick Google search showed that there is a street of that name in Yellowknife. I think policeman are supposed to prevent theft.

Everywhere I Go, there are silly signs. I think I heard a preacher say that once.
