WOW player here... the first thing I though of when I saw this one was...

"Warning: Quest area ahead."

Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy's First Law of Equivalent Exchange.

A friend of mine took a trip to Scotland a few years back.  She came back with tons of pictures, but I think my favorite was the one that said:

No, you can't, because you wishpishabonnyfish.

I once saw a local bill board advertising the area's "Largest Indoor Fireworks Store" and I thought to myself, "But I don't want any indoor fireworks...."




and I love this one:

On the center of Long Island there's a place called "Half Way Motel."   I guess it's for illicit lovers who don't want to go ALL the way?    ???

Or for people in half-way houses who are on vacation?

Or Perhaps the maids only half clean? Or the service is "Half- arsed?"   >:D

I wonder if it's related to a certain hotel in Alaska that my friend went to... Skinny wingadingdingy's Halfway Inn.

One of the favourite passtimes of the young at the bored in Australia seems to be altering road signs. Sorry I don't have any pictures of altered signs for you.

A typical "beware of kangaroos" sign looks like this:

http://www.micktravels.com/australia/atherton_tablelands/083-kangaroo_crossing_sign.jpg

You often see them with snow skis drawn under the feet and snow poles in the paws.

A creek near home is called Womba Creek. People take it upon themselves to add a T to the end, presumably to correct the spelling and make it Wombat Creek.

And the best... a street sign I saw in a town I was visiting told me the street was WANKE RD... only someone had scratched out the R (if people want proof I do have a picture.)
Oh no, I'm blogging!

Driving my inebriated husband home from a New Years' party last week, we passed a large store with apparently defunct lights in their name.

"Look!" gurgled DH.  "It's the Burlinto Cat Factory!"

I about drove off the road.



*Disclaimer- I was dead sober, for anyone about to yell at me.  I just found it hilarious*

This was more a result of my brain shorting out on me than the actual signage, but I saw a sign for "So-And-So's Detailing Shop". The average, normal person would immediately think "Oh, ok. Auto detailing." Not me. I spent more than a few minutes wondering why anyone would need animals de-tailed, and what sort of critters they'd take in.

Near the town of Gaffney, South Carolina, there is a water tank shaped like a giant peach (Gaffney was once best-known for its peach orchards).

Before the outlet mall was built and people could look at the water tank from the mall, there was a sign on the interstate that said, "To View Peach, Go to Exit 92."

The only highway sign I saw that was nearly as funny was in Griffin, Georgia. It was a crossroads sign with a smaller sign underneath it that read "Bowling Lane." I wondered aloud, "Why do they have a crossroads sign for a bowling alley?" ...

Before I realized that the cross-street was named Bowling Lane.  :-[  ;)

Every day when I'm on my way to work, I always pass by this tattoo place. They have a prominent sign in front that reads:

"Tattoos: Buy one, get one free!"

For some reason, that cracks me up. What if you were only planning on getting one? Can another person with you do the free one?

Oooh! I want two more tatts! I can go there! (Or I would if I weren't so in love with my tattoo artist. ;))
