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.

The Law Offices of Fait, Wise and DiLima - which I read as Fate, Wise and Dilemma and think "what a great name for a legal group"   :D

Many years ago there was a law firm in Queens, NY.  The names were perfectly fine Irish names but they didn't go well together.

The names were Lawless and Lynch.

My father used to always laugh about a man who was in the paper on Peeping Tom charges. His name was Seymour Dunne.

There is a Chick-fil-A billboard near a major shopping area that says "Eat mor chicken by the dawn's earlee light". That makes me smile every time.

Hmmmmm

There's a home for sale near us and the realator sign out front shows it being listed by McJunkin & Associates. I giggle each time because in my mind I just don't think I'd want the term "junk" associated with trying to seel my home. I also associatet the term "McMansions" with it to add to the silliness in my mind.

There is a tire place near me and I always like to read their funny signs.  My all-time favorite was:

A garage near me has good signs sometimes - the last one I saw said "Winter is around the corner. Don't peek!"
You are only young once. After that you have to think up some other excuse.

This one is actually rather elegant. 

This morning, a van was parked across the street.

There is a trucking company headquartered a few miles south of me. They recently had a semi-trailer parked in their lot that read "Platonic Transport -- We don't fool around."

Is there a "signs that make your inner grammar nerd cry" category?
