When I'm driving, I stay awake by looking at the signs. (Or by drinking coffee). Sometimes I catch interesting ones.

This one makes me wish I'd brought my camera. It was on the marquee sign of a taco place:

"Eat here or we'll both starve."

Seen any funny (or not so funny) signs?

The church five minutes away always has some cool signs. I'll let you know if I see anything funny.

Didn't have a camera on hand -- I drove past a take-out joint a while back. It's called King Tut's Hut.

On the window, this slogan: Toot -n- Come In.

[inserts obligatory joke about the food they're selling in that place]

A car repair place near where I live has had the same sign for many years advertising their specialty in radiator service: Best place in St. Pete to take a leak!

I went there once to use their restroom, but they said I had to be a customer.

In Oakland(?), CA, there's a street named "A Street". Signs on the freeway say "A Street Downtown". I always read that literally - it's a street downtown, but we're not going to tell you the name. :D

A dozen years back, there was a knick-knack shop with a chalkboard sign out front. The owner put various aphorisms on it.

A mate of mine reported the following chalkwritten gem:

"I'm not getting married again. I'm just going to find a woman I hate and give her my house."

Must be one of those special new toilets that blow hot air toward your butt when you're done doing your business.

:D There needs to be a t-shirt for that. The care package for the recently divorced. Ought to fly off the shelves.

We have this nutty church in the town that I work for....

Last week - the sign said, "Don't make me come down there! -God"

And this week it read- "I'm already up there. -You know who"

We used to have an Ed's BBQ and Taxidermy.

Uh... I don't think I want to eat there.

Also...

Sign printed on glass door of Student Union at UCSB campus:

Shirt and Shoes Required to Eat in Student Union

someone scribbled below:

Socks can eat anywhere they want.

There was a realtor place down the street that always had funky signs out front. One of my favorites read, "If you lived in your car, you'd be home by now."

When we went to the Outer Banks (NC) there was this restaraunt (I think it was called "Bob's" or something like that) that had a sign that said "Eat and get the hell out."

My husband and I passed a home in Oregon that had a bunch of playground equipment in the yard and a large sign that said "KIDS FOR SALE" with a phone number beneath it.






It took us a moment to realize the sign was in a small paddock full of goats.

In nearby Park Rapids, Minnesota, there is a funeral home run by the Cease family. There is a large "Cease" sign in front.

I've seen lots of "unattended kids" signs but the best one so far was:

"Unattended children will be given Red Bull and free puppies"

My favorite funny:

Beef, it's why space aliens steal our cows.

Favorite street name: Miserly Loop.

Kind of stupid, but my hometown has a street called Dwight Way. Every now and again, someone would past over the street sign below (which identified the street than ran 90 degrees), Dwong Way.

And I won't tell what we used to do to the signs for Coit Tower in San Francisco...

Probably something similar to what we used to do for the signs for Condong in Australia.

There's a street in a nearby development called Noe Way.

With nods to the "Got Milk?" campaign, I've seen signs in rural Illinois that say "Got Mulch?"

Don't tell us - we'd only interrupt.

I saw a sign the other day at a Chrysler dealership that said.

Bring your wife and your car and will dicker!

Years back a local Rent-A-Wreck had a sign saying "Cars with experience."

More recently, a new retail store was going into one of the local malls. On the door was the sign: Motherhood coming soon! Deliveries at the back door.

Our wonderful local paper had an ad pasted on one of their vending machines: "YOUR COOKING WHAT? Recipes every Wednesday in the Journal!"

Somehow, it explained everything...
