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.

We did do an experiment.  I ordered the Americanized Sweet and Sour Chicken and Mr. Thipu ordered the Authentic shredded pork with small pepper.  Both dishes were good but neither was much different than we get in other local Chinese restaurants.

I'm glad this thread has popped back up! Two local businesses have signs that just crack me up...

The first is a local hardware/DIY store, and their sign proudly proclaims:

Nuts, knobs, knockers and screws

The second is a dog groomer's. They have a bright pink van with the company name in big letters down the side:

Doggy Styles

 ;D ;D ;D

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".


I often see 'Fallen Rock' signs.  They always trigger a mental picture of a craggy rock, dressed in fishnet tights and a black mini-skirt and too much make-up...

Yes, I am strange, why do you ask?   >:D

Out on the patio we'd sit,
And the humidity we'd breathe,
We'd watch the lightning crack over canefields
Laugh and think, this is Australia.

My family used to camp in the California Sierra Nevada Mountains when I was growing up.  There were frequently signs that read "Watch for Falling Rock."  My mother was a natural storyteller* who would make up stories to keep us kidlets entertained on the long drive.  She told us the "Native American folk tale" of Falling Rock, the son of an important chief who got lost when he went into the forest for his manhood survival test.  His grieving father put up signs asking people to help him find his lost son - Watch for Falling Rock.

I still crack up every time I see that sign. >:D

*I say she "was" because now she forgets the punch line.  She still remembers the long story; She just forgets the point. ::)

Midnight Kitty LOL at your mom.  That's hilarious.  I will also never forget that whenever I see those signs now.

Not exactly a public sign but good for a giggle nevertheless.

Our office went through a phase in which everything had to be clearly labeled.  For example, the clear, plastic box containing pens had to have a label saying 'pens'. 

Mostly, we used basic copier paper but, for nicer letters, we also had a box of bond paper.  Like everything else.  It had a big label saying 'bond'. 

Someone added, 'James Bond'.

Our local gas station has gas for "$31.5" per gallon. (the decimal point is on the "1" card.)

I know gas is expensive, but wow! :o  ( ;) )

Although the sign is hilarious, just the name alone cracks me up. You can imagine what I am talking about...

Yup,

"Los Pollos Hermanos"

I have not watched a single episode of Breaking Bad. Yet I find the name alone hilarious. And the logo can put me in stitches.
