The Eurythmics. Never much liked them, but the Creative Cheese sign which is a parody of one of their songs, Everybody’s Looking for Something, is what it’s called, I think, is pure genius! Sweet dreams are made of cheese, who am I to diss a brie, I cheddar the world and the feta cheese, Everybody’s looking for stilton.
Well done cheese seller, well done. Who doesn’t love cheese, and this sign. By the way, we are taking generous donations of cheese. For ourselves. Anything that doesn’t smell weird will do, we’re not picky. It’s not to give away, but to consume in rather large quantities 😀

Christmas is easier to spell than the many spelling variants of Hannukah. I’m just writing that one because that’s what is on the picture and have no desire to look up and write all the other ones. So there. Christmas can be easier still to spell as xmas, or x-mas although a lot of people get offended by that spelling. Weird the Christmas and Hannukah fall at the same time of year, yeah? The winter solstice? Christmas was moved there to compete with pagan solstice celebrations and to compete with the gift giving of Hannukah. Seems to me if something is Holy, the date, rime of year would have some serious meaning, and not be movable.

No can has cheezburger

No cheezburger here

No can has cheezburger
No can has cheezburger

No can haz cheezburger you stupid cat. Beginning in 2007 the lolcats fad started, and part of that is the I Can Has Cheezburger? cat meme. In fact meme’s didn’t even exist for several more years, so it was just the cats and captions. This has evolved into other animals on the icanhaschezeburger site. The readers of the site generate the content, simple enough. But apparently someone at Mickey DD’s is fed up with the whole thing, as seen in this sign.  What sis the I can has cheezburger thing ever do to him (aside from his job being as a cheeseburger purveyor) to make him go all no can has cheezburger? We may never know…

Booming Business

Booming Business

So the big day has come and you find you have nowhere near enough butts, what do you do? Call the Butt Rental place down the road, they’re doing a booming business! They are a butting, er, budding business.

Butts, you need ’em, they got ’em. Rent 10, 20, 100 at a time (small butt deposit required) to fill your butt needs. Why buy when you can rent by the hour, day or week! They’re there to save your butt.
Ok, so it’s a sign that is has several letters out, leaving only the words Butt Rental, funny by itself, my hyperbole was entirely unneeded.

Not Stuffy There

Not stuffy there. Can’t have a funeral without fun

Not Stuffy There
Not Stuffy There

It’s not stuffy there! Your beloved so and so passes away, why take them to a stuffy old funeral home when you can take them to a better, funner place, like the Fun Home! Load your loved on the water slide, weee! The tilt-a-whirl, fun for the living and the dead alike! Play find the decedent in the hall of mirrors, but wait, there’s more! Formaldehyde squirt guns,  games of hide the casket, all culminating in a weenie roast and roasting marshmallows over the fire in the crematorium, all while singing festive songs! The Fun Home, like no other funeral home on Earth.

Nasty street funny sign

Nasty Street – Funny Sign

Los Banos, The Bathrooms? Yep. So, um, people really live here? Yep. Shot the picture of the nasty street funny sign myself.

Is this a real place? Yes it is. For those of you who know little Spanish, Camino Los Banos translated to Bathrooms Street, or Street of Bathrooms. How this street got the name I have never asked, but it’s a modern-ish development of homes that looks like the original buyers were probably Anglos, but is now predominantly Spanish speakers that live in the area. The name was probably suggested, and some white guy said, “Yeah, sounds all romantic like, or peaceful like, Los Banos. I like it, name the street that. The suggestee probably walked away snickering, and now everyone who lives there, well, they know. Who names a street what amounts to Shithouse Street? smh.

Golden Cue Funny Sign

Golden Cue Funny Sign

Words are special, but sometimes a little word play is fun, like with the Golden Cue Funny Sign.

The Golden Cue advertises that they have smooth shafts and clean balls. Nothing like a little sexual innuendo to bring in customers, but hey, it’s a pool hall, so naturally that would be the way to go. It is a funny sign. Not enough sigh writers break out their inner funnyman, and that’s too bad. Funny is memorable, funny gets talked about, clever sticks. Not only that, but I’ll bet they really do have clean balls and smooth shafts, after all, they handle them day after day.

Sadly funny street sign

This is a Sadly funny street sign. A) What were they thinking naming this street, and B) what were they thinking moving onto this street? Definitely a bad sign, all is not well when you move to….

Who ever was naming the streets in this period has some serious issues on their mind, apparently. Torture lane, Death way, Pain circle, Taxation Blvd, I’ll bet these are all nearby.
So, tell me, do you think the property values are depressed here? Or just the people? And would you live there?

Funny Movie Price Sticker

Funny Movie Price Sticker

The unfortunately placed funny movie price sticker changes the whole dynamic and genre of the film.

Funny Movie Price Sticker

Here you have a serious drama on a serious topic with serious actors, yet one misplaced price sticker potentially changes every notion on what the movie may be about, and it’s genre entirely. Class Action becomes that academy award winning juggernaut Ass Action. Ok, kidding about the award winning stuff. On an other note, 4 pounds for this? I wouldn’t pay 4 pennies to watch it to be honest. Fine actors and all, but meh.

Funny Restaurant Sign for Kids

Eat the Free Clown Funny Sign

Funny Restaurant Sign for Kids
Funny Restaurant Sign for Kids

What’s not to love on this funny restaurant sign for kids? Eat tacos while the kids nibble on a free clown, sounds like good times to me.
I did hear that the clowns taste sort of like chicken, and that they cried. A lot. Not so much caring about that though, clowns are so damned creepy and wrong in so many ways that one can hardly sympathize with their having been eaten alive. No, I’m not one of those people afraid of clowns, I just think they’re creepy.

In other news, Ole Mexican Restaurant is looking for some new clowns to have over for dinner on Tuesday at their place, so if you or anyone you know is interested…
I know a few clowns I’m going to nominate 🙂
