I think someone must have been confused about what "Xing" means, as I once saw a "Bump Xing" sign.  They move now?

Then there was the residence rule regarding pets:  "No animals except fish or plants."

And DH and I think Dracula may be trying to open a line of department stores, as our city has a "Val-Mart." (first half of the W burned out)

At a local restaurant:
 "Fine dining Friday and Saturday"

Thing is, they're open seven days a week!  ;D

On the door of a public transportation bus, "Do not enter if doors are closed" - HUH?

Today I saw a handwritten sign in a consignment shop window that made me shake my head and chuckle:

"SALE!  10% off everything - except sale items!"

Hunh?  :-)

There's a sign that says :
"Dog Waste is a threat to the health of our children degrades our city transmits disease
leash  curb and clean up after your dog
It's required by law!"

And then 3-4 feet away another one
"City of Biddeford
cso
sewer outfall
#005"
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

Around where my sister lives, there's a Street Road. This has always made me smile for some reason.

I've seen the "road wet during rain" sign - there used to be one on the way to the grounds we camp at. Unfortunately, I think they finally realized how ridiculous that is because it's not there anymore...

A while back, my mom and I took a road trip. On our way back, we got completely lost - and ended up driving through Circleville. Circleville has a Mooberry Street and Friendship Lane and signs pointing out how to get to Stringtown. Maybe it was because we were a little cranky due to being lost and both of us were only awake due to drinking sugar with tea in it, but we both completely lost it. We swore it was like something out of a preschool cartoon...

I've also seen "Shoplifters will be shot. Survivors will be prosecuted." in a shop.

I thought of a lot while reading the thread but now they've left me...

I have to find and scan a picture I took of a sign in San Francisco many years ago.
CAUTION
PEDESTRIANS
SLIPPERY WHEN WET
Those darn slippery pedestrians!

I remember a sign from years ago while wlaking in a park in London: Warning Dangerous Tree
It was in front of a pile of shredded tree so was mostly redundant. It was there for a few days and made me smile each time. I kept imagining a tree lurking around dark corners carrying a knife.

Somewhere on a NC highway: "Bat Cave: exit 1/4m" My sister and I would beg to see Batman (coolest superhero ever) and then ask why Batman needed directions. And how he was going to keep his secret hideout secret if he posted signs.

I've seen that too!  I think it's on I-40.  And I think we have a picture somewhere.  I'll have to ask my mom.

I was in a jewelry store over Christmas.  On the wall was a sign that read:
(in large type) "Free ride in a police car".  Under that in smaller type was "when you shoplift from this store"

My town has a street named Cross Street. I had fun with a CSR when I was asked what the nearest cross street was. I said, "Uh..that would be ah, well...Cross Street. I swear that is the name of the road!" She got a kick out of it.
