Please explain.

Is it the Korn that bothers you? That's just expected around here, like Kountry Kitchen. We all know it is annoyingly cutesy.

No cholesterol in corn oil.
It's the words "coverd wtih" just below the cutesy Kettle Korn.

I didn't notice that initially...I thought we were all crying over the "NO BUTTER" part!

I despise the use of K or Q instead of C.

We have electronic signs all along the major roads to warn you of traffic problems ahead and the estimated travel time to a certain cross street.

Last week, while driving, I noticed the electronic signs were warning of traffic congestion, only the wrong direction as I had already passed the problem area.

Here's one from a bathroom stall...


In case you can't read it, it says "Jesus loves you!" with a smiley face.
Below someone has added "Yes, but He frowns upon vandalism"

This sign is on the napkin dispensers in the small Greek restaurant where I ate dinner last night

"Yes we have free WIFI. But why not talk to the people you're with instead?"

Not a sign, but a news article:

An emu has escaped, but according to the article, it is not considered a flight risk.  :P

I always laugh at signs that say "must be 21 to enter" on bars, or "must be 21 to purchase alcohol" in stores.

I always think, well, I haven't been 21 for quite a few years now.  Am I still allowed to enter the bar, purchase the alcohol, whatever?

I know what the signs mean, of course, but I wish they would include the words "at least" or "or over" or something.

We were at a swimming pool at a hotel i Taiwan that had a long list of rules in strange English.

Our favourite was:

Do not use unusual judgment eyesight

According to our Chinese friend it was supposed to say "Do not stare "

We have been using the expression ever since whenever someone looks at you as if you were crazy.

I feel bad about laughing at the "slow children at play" signs.  At least do "Slow! Children at play."

I actually thought those really meant "slow children", as in please be extra carefully because a special needs child will be more likely to be in the road. I was an adult when the signs first became common, but had seen one the simply said "Blind child".


We go to Jimmy John's sandwich shops frequently. I love all the silly things posted around, but I just noticed that the labels on the restroom doors have the usual international silhouette, but they are pasted on a picture of a tin can.

A local restaurant is called "Pollo Rumbero".

It features a chicken playing the maracas.

Of course, their specialty is chicken.

Both my boyfriend and I cracked up- at both the sign and the name.
I have pet mice!

I saw an amusing twist on the "Baby on Board" decals that people put in their car windows: This one showed a baby in diapers hanging ten on a surfboard.  8)

In our local grocery store there were large boxes containing bags of plastic grass for Easter baskets but unfortunately someone had stuck a large cardboard sign on the side of the box giving the price so that the lettering on the side of the box hid the "GR" from sight.
