Today I read a news headline....sort of a sign....right ?

"Airline loses child.  Mother offered voucher."

I read it and blinked hard, 'cos I took it literally for a second or two.  :D

This thread is too much fun!

On a hike up to a cave I saw a sign that said, "Running can be hazardous to your health." I took a picture to turn in at gym because I hated running.

At Bryce Canyon in Utah there was a sign that said to find shade and wait for help if you get lost. Not so bad, but the picture they had on the sign showed miles of desert and a sad tiny tree that provided next to no shade.

While shopping at the toy store a few weeks ago we I saw a sign that said "Save $0!" Upon closer inspection, it turns out that the sale price was $44.99 and the original price was $39.99. It made me laugh as is, but part of me wishes it said "Save -$5.00!"

Last one I can think of right now is the name of a town in South Dakota. It's called Pukwana and the smell around it was horrible! I don't know that it should be pronounced puke-wanna, but it sure seemed appropriate.

My favorite headline spotted in a local newspaper was "Glass Eyes Nomination".

I was rather disappointed to discover it was a man named Glass who was considering running for election.

This was funnier when it didn't need so much explaining, but here goes anyway. DH is a real estate appraiser. Appraisers generate reports about the subject property and the nearby comparable sales, or "comps." On one page of the report, there is a map with arrows pointing at "Subject," "Comp 1," "Comp 2" and so on. These days you click and drag them on a screen, of course, but at the time they were still doing paper reports. You rubbed the little arrows on from a transfer sheet.

So anyway, there was a postcard on the bulletin board with Heathcliff the cat next to a huge stone lion, with the caption "Dream Big!" It didn't take long before someone had added a "Comp 1" arrow pointing at Heathcliff.

I am reviewing real estate appraisals right now (or will be, when my break is over), and that made laugh. We underwriters have our own little bits of appraisal humor (that probably no one else finds funny)

Not a sign, but an e-mail popped up in my inbox with the following title:

Defeat Dracula with the flick of a switch!

It was a sale notice from Ott-Light.

DH & I were at Cabela's tonight seeing if there was anything we were interested in for their big sale tomorrow.  I happened to look at some boxes of ammo that were sitting on the counter in the gun department...
