Santa Needs This

Santa Needs This Santa needs this soon, I’m sure. That is unless he keeps his elves working year round, as a good capitalist might, but I doubt that, Santa seems like a good guy. Now that the holiday season is gone, and approaches again in a time that seems to have gotten here too soon, … Read more

Problems Are Relative

Fringe Benefits

Problems are relative, any way you slice them. However having zombies chasing you, yes, that is a big problem.

However if you are in good physical running condition, there is a much better chance you will escape said zombies. Also as the sign says, running will help you loose weight. Yes, running sucks, to a certain point, but escaping Zombies is generally considered a good thing, never mind that zombies only exist in movies and on television. Oh, like, you thought they were a real thing? Alright, I’ll phrase that differently, being capable of running could help you to elude bath salt users.

Burn Baby Burn Sign

Naked Fire Sign?

Burn Baby Burn Sign
Burn Baby Burn Sign

Burn baby burn sign. Translated signs can be funny as hell, because when it’s in your native tongue you wonder, “How did they not catch that? What were they thinking?” But when you consider that their language characters are so much different that they can not read them any more than we can read theirs, and that they mostly translated via computers, then the picture becomes clearer. It’s more a computer problem than a human issue. Some of the symbols they use could transl;ate to open fire, uncovered fire, or, well, naked, as in this case. We have a whole bunch of translation fails photos coming, by the way.

Funny Drinking PSA Sign

Don’t Drink and Derive Sign

Funny Drinking PSA Sign
Funny Drinking PSA Sign

This is a funny drinking PSA sign giving a public service announcement that calculus and alcohol do not mix, so don’t drink and derive. This saying has actually been around for a lot of years, a company of mine making Don’t Drink and Derive products for a school a dozen years ago, so it is nothing new. Yet it meets the criteria of a good sign, clever and memorable. I just with they worded it to include not drinking and driving as well. No way to say that enough these days! Even after decade of pounding that message home, people still do it.

Funny Animal Hospital Sign

Funny Animal Hospital Sign

This funny animal hospital sign is more or less the truth, neutering your pet will make them less nuts, and nut-less.

I’ve been told that my boy dog will settle down quite a bit if we had the ol’ danglers cut off, but he is a very sweet boy, and I can’t bear the thought of lopping his jewels off. Now if there were a remote chance of him knocking up another dog (our girl dog is spayed) then that’s another story, but to do so he’d have to lean how to unlock doors and work door knobs, and I just don’t see that happening.

Funny Buffet Sign

Buffet Sign Needs Fixing

Funny Buffet Sign

This is a funny buffet sign, even if it was never intended to be. Burn out the first two letters of Dynasty Buffet and you’re left with Nasty Buffet. That is a business that won’t be doing much drive up business, at night at any rate. Maybe in the day, when the error isn’t noticeable. This is why you have a sign guy, number on file, on good terms, stashed away in the office. It could take months or years to recover from this sort of malady, the embarrassment, the snickering. Remember, a memorable sign is memorable for a reason, make it the right reason. On another note, the dumpster on the left, under the burnt out DY, yeah, should NEVER be near the entrance!

Funny Sign Warning

Cop Behind This Sign Warning

Funny Sign Warning
Funny Sign Warning

Funny sign warning speeders of police presence in the area proves to be right on the money. I’ve read that in a lot of places, various municipalities, this is illegal, warning about a speed trap ahead or about a checkpoint. I’ve never investigated the laws on this, but I have watched as local motorists decide to make a U turn or turn onto before a checkpoint get chased down and pulled over by forward stationed officers, who have made the assumption that said turn, legal or illegal, is an admission of guilt, probably cause due to an attempt to hide wrongdoing. On the other hand are the voices that say, If you’re not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to fear. However, I have been caught up in checkpoints while working or on my way to work, and they are a pain in the butt due to the delay factor. In this picture motorists are forewarned, and correctly so. Personally I’m not too much a fan of officers lying in wait, because I’ve have experienced enough cases of “Why were you speeding? “Because I didn’t see you”.

Here’s an animal clinic funny sign full of puns. Must be a great place to work. This image though looks like it has been photoshopped, the lettering added, but that could also just be the lighting, or maybe it was touched up. Whatever. I think if you’re going to take the gamble on a funny sign attracting new customers that weak-ish puns may not be worth the trouble, but what do I know, I’m just the internet typing guy. Anyway, good sign, provokes a giggle or titter (I just wanted to say titter) and makes the place memorable to the casual passer by.

Clever, humorous signs are a plus, like this funny sign auto correct sign is, because they capture the attention of people who may become new customers, and who may never have noticed your business or service ever before.

This makes them memorable, the second criteria for taking the risk in putting up a funny sign, important along with cleverness. A sign that tries to be either funny or clever, or both, but misses the mark can make you and your business look silly, which is the risk you take. This one hit the mark. Of course children riding past with their chuckling parent will inevitably ask what is an enema, and what makes it funny?

Could be they are the most, or least, honest bar in town judging by this funny bar sign. It is also possible a disgruntled customer (or employee) wrote it. It’s been wiped a few times, so that could be, but in the off chance it’s genuine, I’d say it’s funny, yes, but memorable for the wrong reasons. I’ve seen businesses try the reverse psychology marketing in the past and have never seen it turn out well. If you say you suck, then you suck. Funny it doesn’t work both ways, as most businesses claim they are something straight out of heaven, and clearly they are not.
