Not a sign, but a product.

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...

I howled.

I want a box of this to put in my zombie response team vest.  DH said that it's too expensive and I should take some regular shot and paint them green.  He's no fun.

Update: I talked DH into buying a box of the buckshot.  I will be painting some rifle rounds green on the ends to finish out my vest.

I am not a fan of graffiti but this made me laugh. In my home town, there was a sign in a car park saying "No Parking." It was winter and snowing. Some enterprising soul had sprayed an "S" and a "w" around the word "No" to make it say "Snow Parking" lol.

Back around Thanksgiving, I saw one at our local Wal-Mart. Must have been the type of signage they'd normally use for a sale or something.

Written in black marker was:

"Closed Thanksgiving"

And printed smaller underneath:

"While supplies last"

While driving down the road I noticed a little hole in the wall store.  Not sure exactly what it was but it was offering discount legal forms & stuff for sale.  The sign in the window???  "Guns, knives, divorce kits"

Wow! ;D

"If the gun or the knife doesn't work, we'll give you a refund and a free divorce kit!"

Back in the 1970s there was a firm of lawyers in NYC.  Even though they were based in an Irish neighborhood I'm not sure if they got much business.  The firm was named after the partners, 'Lawless and Lynch'.

Makes me think of the lawyers from (I think it's) "Car Talk"--Dewey, Cheatam, and Howe.

I think they used the same law firm in a Daffy Duck cartoon once.....maybe it was "Duck Dodgers of the 21st Century".

I think that goes even further back to the original "Three Stooges" movies, but I could be wrong.

The firm apparently has its own web page http://www.dewey-cheatham-howe.com/history.

I've attended/worked on the same college campus for years. There's a dorm near my office called "Allen Residences." Every year--every year--the kids scratch at the letters on the sign to make it read "Alien Residences." One doesn't want to encourage vandalism, but I find it hilarious--the first time, because I'd never thought how close "Allen" and "Alien" were, and all the times after that because I imagine how clever the new class of students think they are, for coming up with this great new joke.  8)

in a collectibles and comics shop:
Any loose children will be sold to the highest bidder.

In the same shop:
Sorry, we're
Open

This one made me laugh HARD.  ;D I know of several businesses that SHOULD post this sign in their window...

On the University of Wisconsin, Madison campus there's a residence called 'Ogg Hall'.

I'm sure the Ogg family is a fine one but, every time I see that sign, I can only envision a dorm inhabited by gnomes.

Would that have been in a small, college town in northern New York? I'm curious as I saw the same sign on a shop with similar merchandise while I was there.

I saw this at a local apartment complex. I'm sure I seemed like a loon to anyone who saw me laughing and/or taking its picture, but I knew I had to share it here.

A local church posted the following on its front sign:

Yelling, "Oh, God!" does not constitute attending Mass.


My mom thought it was crude but I loved it.
No one ever says, "Why me?!?!" when something good happens.

I was taking a train trip along Boston's North Shore.   We went by this tidal pool sort of area.  There was literally half of an old rowboat rotting on the shore.   It was in bad condition and getting worse by the minute.

The name painted on it?

"Ruff'n It"
