Signs, Signs

I love the different kind of signs I come across - some very clever people out there.
 We looked around but couldn't find the skinny kitty
 This was by the door on a beach house on Orcas Island
 The road had one little turn on it - have no idea why the sign was so wiggly - and it seems to be an official sign

 My favorites - clever street names


Hmmm - backwards?

What are your favorite signs?

Good morning, great collection of signs. I like the hippu sign and the Lois Ln. Have a happy day!

Great signs.

I can't think of a single unusual sign from around here. And that reminds me why I like coming here - you take the time to really LOOK at your world! Then you carefully photograph the unique things you find and bring them back here for all of us to enjoy! :) I like that!

These are all great JoAnn...Lois Lane took me a minute and then I laughed and had to pass the IPAD across the table ... Bill knows that would have been one to cause me to beg him to turn around so I could get a picture ( since I would have caught on a mile down the road).

Thanks for sharing those funny signs with us. I needed to smile after a tiring afternoon with some teenagers who didn't care about what I had to tell them.
Take care of yourself!

I love these, and keep meaning to start photographing street/road names. There are some funny ones around here.

Hi JoAnn. Those are pretty good. I can't think of any wierd signs that I've seen lately but I did look back as I missed Sally Jo wrestling that old turkey. In a very spiffy outfit I must say..Happy Weekend..Judy

What a wonderful variety of signs. I love it when people post a series like this. They are such fun to look at one by one. Great contribution this week.

Sometimes I can't help taking pictures of signs. In Japan you can find some pretty funny English versions.
Maybe I should hunt up a few. My favorite was a kingfisher sitting on top of a sign stuck in a local pond. The sign said "NO FISHING" in English and that Japanese bird was perched there on top with a fish in it's beak. I have often wondered for whom that sign was intended.

I love those signs. Puts some humour in life.

Great finds! I don't think I've ever seen a wiggly road sign that had that many wiggles in it, even when the road had lots of twists and turns. That's a great shot, especially with the unconcerned cows in the background.

Lois Ln has to be my favorite although all your signs are great!

Pamela Gordon said...

Those are fun and interesting signs. I know I've seen some good ones too but can't think of them right now! lol Have a good weekend.

A great set of signs. I often smile at signs. There is one where I shop directing the way to Clevedon only a supermarket has been built in the way!. Then there is the sign to a hospital which was demolished over 20 years ago.....
