Or get threatened by the crazed digger (how crazy exactly? well, consider the "climbing" one on the right):



You could get blasted by a powerful spell of Gandalf:



Or end up ambushed by a truly wild bunch of Russians, "bear"-ing at you (this is also a poster for a game, seen on Moscow streets):

You might end up lured to the untimely death by a funeral home advertisement:


(on the right is banned advertisement, it did not go into print... wise decision)

... or imperil your offsprings by bouts of irresponsible drinking:



After all this excitement you might need to put your pants through a wash:



And remember, the Big Brother is watching you:

... no matter where you are, or what you do:

More of the good old highway entertainment:





The one below left is a Photoshop job, but a quite entertaining one (head-scratching, rather). The sign on the right is real, and was photographed by author Melissa Taylor:

I just wanted to clarify a bit: The sign you have named "stop" in fact is "no entry". In Russia and some other ex-USSR countries in slang its called "brick".

Some DIY geniuses made such signs nearby their country houses. You can see one more example here:

The Pittsburgh sign is referring to the town of Moon, PA. As opposed to the town of Mars, PA, which is elsewhere.

Always a fan of the "You Shall Not Pass" Gandalf signs. I want one for my bathroom door.
