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 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.
