Link - by Avi Abrams
When asking for directions, be prepared to fall off the edge of the Universe
These are confusing, weird, bizarre signs and instructions, that are likely to deliver you to Vogons, who will gladly recite to you a poem, or two... Well, regardless, this is all the more material for our on-going, wildly popular series of Weird Signage. This is the 14th installment in the series; make sure to check the previous ones!
Even police puzzled by some of these road signs:
Entry... Exit... and a little disclaimer in the middle: "Sorry for any inconvenience":
You Shall Not Pass! -
Sacred cows? -
Too many options:
This sign appropriately says "Funeral Home" (left):
Above right: all directions lead "Downtown"! (but, of course). Here, also, you'd think twice before entering -
Sometimes road signs are, indeed, helpful, considering the total weirdness around them:
It's a hard work, painting the lines -
You've Been Warned!
Warning signs are no joke - they keep us from harm and tell us the right thing to do in the circumstances... except when they are put together by some lunatics with a twisted sense of humor, or often, no sense at all:
How deadly? Go ahead, find out -
"If he will not chew you up, I will shoot you down!" -
"Careful: cats!" -
Sign tempting, or rather "trolling" you:
Plenty of altered signs as part of an urban art project in Amarillo, Texas (more info):
See more here and here.
"Vote for..." -
Very important government campaign:
More Than a Toilet
Solve the puzzle first! -
You'd have to walk on water, and then pee in it? -
(sent in from Hengest - Bognor on the South coast of England)
Convenient gender change:
Clever use of the gender symbols in the latest release from "She & Him":
Lost in Translation, but Gained in Hilarity!
Although, sometimes even signs in native English make us clearly wonder if we stumbled in parallel Universe:
Wacky & Wicked Storefronts and Labels
"Shirley Can't Surf" has been sent to us by Shirley Richard. She says: "This sign is from a real shop in Key West Florida. Since my name is Shirley I thought I would go and ask the owner about the sign. I asked, "What makes you think I cannot surf?' He said, "Because every Shirley that has walked into this shop can't surf and neither can my wife." I can't surf."
Why lie? -
Church signs do not disappoint:
Suicidal Teens Welcome! -
Swastik Spices! - we got this photo from Matthew Lowden, this is a real sign spotted in Fort Kochi, Kerala, India:
Excellent idea! -
Sign on the left says "Cut out this coupon and save!". Sign on the right was, well, cut out:
Textbook for kids poses a question:
More creativity for kids on a playground:
"Protect your child! There is a serial killer in your house! It's a COMPUTER!" -
"If you see someone drowning, throw him this!" Well, there supposed to be lifesavers, except that they were stolen, and now there is only... a brick? -
Useful instruction on how to use chopsticks (with some weird options added in):
Also very useful instructions on how to survive during the gas attack:
Having great fun with corporate logos:
Somewhere in Russia - the "i-Bay"? -
Even better: this is the poster for the Independence Day of Kazakhstan. Except that now Kazachstan is located in America -
Finally, a vintage sign that we all can relate to:
