Yesterday at a stoplight I was behind a car with a rear window decal that read "Godspeed." It was all white except for the S, which was red and rendered almost invisible by the red brake light just above it. So it looked for all the world like "God peed."

My favourite sign was Scottish: "Dead slow children playing".
Well of course they're slow!  You'd be slow too if you were a zombie!

A bar that we pass to go to our favorite restaurant always has interesting signs out.  Today it was "Open 7 days AWK."  While I know what they meant, that wasn't what the sign said.

There was a print shop about a block away from my dad's business that had a changeable marquee sign (like a church sign) that always had funny sayings up on it, which, since they weren't a church, tended towards the merely humorous instead of religious.  I guess the business didn't rely on drive-by customers, as I never once saw them actually advertise on the sign.

Sadly, shortly before I moved away from my hometown, the sign ended up with a smaller sign on it saying "This sign used to be funny, but someone stole our letters!"

Professionally printed, likely mass produced Bumper sticker spotted on a car today:

"Honk if your horney"

Really?

With the typo in it? That's the first thing I noticed, not that it is inappropriate on a public steet!

Oh yes, that is verbatim.  So typo?  Check.  Improper use of your instead of you're? Check.  I suppose it also counts as a brain hurt that someone got this printed as is.

Wait, what if my name really is horney, lowercase and all, to be eunigqquee?  (Pronounced hor Nay)

I guess I am the only one that truly gets to honk!

HONK HONK HONK!!

Near the town of Gaffney, South Carolina, there is a water tank shaped like a giant peach (Gaffney was once best-known for its peach orchards).

Before the outlet mall was built and people could look at the water tank from the mall, there was a sign on the interstate that said, "To View Peach, Go to Exit 92."

The only highway sign I saw that was nearly as funny was in Griffin, Georgia. It was a crossroads sign with a smaller sign underneath it that read "Bowling Lane." I wondered aloud, "Why do they have a crossroads sign for a bowling alley?" ...

Before I realized that the cross-street was named Bowling Lane.  :-[  ;)

Love the Peachoid!

The Dole Cannery in Honolulu used to have a water tower painted like a pineapple.  It was a beloved local landmark.  Time took its toll and the water tower was torn down and the cannery transformed into an outlet mall.  Fast forward several years and an egg shaped anaerobic digester was constructed at the wastewater treatment plant (a couple miles away).  Many people were upset at the visibility of this egg-shaped digester.  They claim it ruined the view.  It's in the middle of an industrial park and the cranes and hoists at the shipyard hide most of the digester from view.

I suggested they paint the digester to resemble a pineapple.  They don't listen to my brilliant suggestions. ::)

This sign has been cracking DH and I up for a few weeks now.  It's the sign for a private road near where we live.  Used to be just a small sign with the numbers of the houses, and then it was replaced quite suddenly.  Wouldn't you love to be known as "the people who live on Odd Private Dr"?

A cheap sign on the side of the road read "Gifted Psychic Adviser" and had a phone number.

DH looked and laughed, "Why would a psychic need to advertise?" and I wondered if the psychic is gifted, is the psychic going to give the client gifts, or they only treat gifted people.

Psychics need to advertise because their clients are not psychic.  However, they should know that you are coming in, so you should not need to call for an appointment.

DH thinks they should just walk up to whoever needs their services and offer to trade advice for a fee. He is silly.  :)
