There's a driving school in town called "Leisure Driving School" Yeah, cause learning to drive is always a relaxing thing for the kid and parents!!  ::)

I still wince when I remember my oldest will be old enough to obtain a permit in 3 years.

I bought my current rug from MMM, so no laughing, people.

I made it to the Obama headline.

When we visited Governor's Island we were amused by a large sign on the dock when we left the free ferry. 

'Enjoy your day but do not plan on taking the last ferry off the island.'

My name is Lisa.  I sent this to my husband...but told him that he should substitute his own name.  Or not  ;)
I don't get it. I am perplexed ... and intrigued. What did you send to your husband, Lisa?

Sorry...there was one sign that reads "After all these years, Lisa still loves D!ck."  I sent it to DH.  He approved.

During countless summer vacations, we would drive through mountains. And there was a drive near our zoo where they'd have the same sign, "Falling Rock".

As kids, sis and I always thought it was so polite that just one would fall at a time rather than a huge avalanche. We actually made jokes about the one black sheep rock of the family being kicked off the cliffside for being loose.

I don't know how many pages back you have to go to find that sign.  I searched back to page 70 or so and still hadn't found it.

In the future, blueyzca01, may I suggest you quote the post to which you are referring so we have some context.

It was one of the ones in the "can you get through this without giggling" link. :)

A sign I saw on a shopfront on my honeymoon in Goa many moons ago:

This isn't exactly a sign.  It's a menu.

We recently tried a Chinese restaurant in the neighborhood.  The menu was divided into 'Authentic' and 'Americanized'.

I would laugh too, but I also think it's a bit brilliant! I would love a place around here where my ILs can get their sweet and sour chicken, but I can also try something more authentic if I'm feeling adventurous.

A friend introduced me to beef and bitter melon, which I love, but I can see that it would be an acquired taste for most Western palates.

I tried to order it at a Chinese restaurant, and the server refused to le me have it. I told her I'd had it before and knew what it was like.

She said, "It's not popular!"

No bitter melon for me!

Not quite a sign, but close: I saw a fire extinguisher in a car park which was labelled as, "Fire Kill." I think this is a fantastic description  ;D

There was a fantastic Chinese restaurant near my college campus which had two menus.  The English menu had all the regular dishes you'd expect, but the (Mandarin, I think) version had lots of great things involving duck and squid and pickled octopus that non-Asian students just didn't order all that often.  Students called it the "secret menu" and I loved bringing my Mandarin-fluent friend along so he could suggest things for me  ;D  Of course, once I knew what was on there, I could order "crispy squid" in English and get the same dish - there was no way I'd remember what to call it in Chinese!
