You know the ones I am talking about? You are driving along and you catch a sign on the road or posted in front of a business that makes you think what were they thinking or makes you burst out in laughter. I would love to hear about them.


I saw one in the front window of a local pub. It said "Sorry, we are open".

Slow children at play (no punctuation leaves you to interpret it as you will)

This is probably seen lots of times, but I remember seeing a sign in front of a tire shop that said,

"Best place in town to take a leak." ;)

Common ones, but still...I can't think of any unique ones right now.

No dumping

No driving on shoulders

In Las Vegas there is a strip mall where the three businesses went in together on the sign. It reads Guns, Drugs, and Liquor.(Gun store, Pharmacy, and Package Liquor stores).

Around these parts you also see a lot of highway signs that say No Jake Brakes.

In Hong Kong, there was a sign at the train station:

Please do not touch others. When vomiting, please turn away and use a bag.

I saw one near the PA/NY border...

PUN KING PIE
HO-MAID

Now what I want to know is this: Who is the pun king? And which ho is the maid?

I just loved this shop sign in Boston:
POO PING CHINESE RESTAURANTMaybe someone can help me out with this one: in a Chinese restaurant here, one of the dishes is Fuk-kin Chicken. I'm serious (I won't even get into the Hung Dong restaurant)

And I once saw a large sign at the entrance of a driveway: "Promised Land Preparatory School."

No, collected them from all over. I went through my hard drive and Googled a few. Got a computer full of them.

Obviously, they should have been reversed:

Mad Magazine shows these stupid signs all the time. Funny stuff.

To answer the question about Fuk-Kin Chicken... without reading the description or Chinese characters, I can only guess that Fuk-Kin is the name of a province -- usually spelled as Fu Kin (foo-keen). Now I can't think of any specialty chicken dish from that province...

When I worked at a restaurant years and years ago, there was a dish called "Fung Mei Har" -- basically butterflied shrimp in a tangy sauce. But my customers always grinned when they ordered it. One person even came out and said it, "I'd like a F*** Me Hard please."

:ROFL: After I showed these to a coworker, he sent me a link to a sign. It was a town in Austria named F*cking.
