Back home there was a sign for someone's proctology practice that had a big sign saying 'Parking in the Rear.'  I have a blurry picture of it around here somewhere, I wish I could find it.

For a while, we had billboards around town for one of our medical centers that had been rated five stars in various specialities.  The ones with the doctor showing the splayed hand with all five fingers for OB/Gyn were pretty funny.

Not a specific sign, but I always look for the ones with only a single word to tell you about the business.  We'd try to make up new ones, but these were signs that I did see:


Eat
Gas
Bank
Store

That is rather funny - would be funny to see a sign like that in Australia as our signs say "Give Way" instead of "Yeild"
Oh no, I'm blogging!

In a single building "professional plaza" down the street from my father, Oriental restaurant, doctor's office, funeral home. You do not want to know some of the jokes that Dad has made about it.

Throw in a vet's office and my family would have a GREAT time with your dad!  >:D
How about a Vet and a Taxidermist?  ;D

How bout a "Down home cooking" cafe.... beside a taxidermist.

Outside a local produce stand:

Apple's, peache's, watermelon's, lemon's, tomatoe's, onion's, etc. Every item had an apostrophe before the S that made it plural.

Maybe they were just trying to make the point that the produce stand was actually owned by all of those fruits and vegetables. 
No, you can't, because you wishpishabonnyfish.

On the "Local Area Bulletin Board" at the grocery store by my in-laws. Three flryers, toughing each other, on the same color of paper. The outside two were both lost cat, for different cats. The middle on was "New Chinese Restaurant! Come try out our fresh buffet!!!"
It cracked me up. FIL is going to go tomorrow and see if he can get a good pc through the glass overlay.

I love some of the signs for small (often home-based) businesses in which the owner offers very different services -- sometimes it's one service offered by the husband and another by the wife. One favorite I remember is "Model Trains and Income Tax." In case you were wondering how to spend your refund, I guess ...

A friend told me about this one: "Hypnosis & TV Repair." That works! 'Cause you need something to put you in a trance while your TV's broken.

At the bookstore yesterday, 8-year-old DS spotted Rachael Ray's "Cooking Rocks." I had to explain that it didn't mean frying up rocks in a pan...

My fav sign so far is a street sign a few blocks over.  We are on an old Air Force base psrt of which is owned by the city and part is being maintained by the Marines.

Bong Ave

Named after a pilot from WWII.  It gets stolen.  A lot.

My next fav sign is near Joplin Mo and we drive by it every time we go down to see my grandma in OK.

F.A.G. Bearings

The sign has got to be five plus feet high and is very visible from the highway.

a friend of mine lives on SWINGER RD

that one disapears a lot too - and since it is out in the county - it doesn't get replaced as often as it should.
