When speed bumps were first installed in my neighborhood, Chip went past one of the signs that said "Hump," and I said, "Is that an order?"

He almost drove off the road.

If you think the Road Humps signs are bad, you should check out our alley sometime.  We have "Speed Humps Ahead."  ;D

Free Butt Rub with Green Egg?  They had to know how hilarious that was when they put that sign up...

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.

Many years ago, while a group of us were visiting a small seaside town in Wales, we got dinner from the 'Carousel' fish & chip shop. It faced the fairground, which was probably why they had chosen that name... but unfortunately, they couldn't spell too well. Added to this, the lights on the 'C' had failed, giving:

'arousal'

Somewhere at home I still have photographic evidence...

A gun shop in Eugene, Oregon called S&M Guns.  They had a sign in their parking lot for "S&M Parking Only".  You bet I got a picture of that!

"Warning - Dog can't hold his liquor" (get it, licker haha... took my sister a year and a half)

"Warning, trespassers will be attacked by a tiger" and below it: "No, we're serious." and below it: "REAL tigers!" It was at some kind of rehabilitation place for tigers that were once pets.

In large letters: "Warning: The edges of this sign are sharp! Do not Touch!" In small letters below that: "Oh, and the bridge is out."

Somewhere on a NC highway: "Bat Cave: exit 1/4m" My sister and I would beg to see Batman (coolest superhero ever) and then ask why Batman needed directions. And how he was going to keep his secret hideout secret if he posted signs.

And the ever popular: "Road wet when raining"... I wish I had gotten a picture.

Was that in the mountains, by any chance?
When the ex and I, years ago, were moving to CA for his job, we drove. While in the mountains near the northern half of CA, we saw a sign that cautioned "Warning, roads may we bet or slipperry when raining or freezing" We were unable to get a pic, though, because it was at night, andraining, and the road was slick!

Bat Cave is indeed in the NC mountains, but Chip and I have been there and I have yet to see a bat, much less a cave. Nice gift shop there, though.

It drives Chip crazy because every time we pass the sign, I flap my arms like bat wings. I told him it was a tradition since my childhood, and I'm not about to stop now. ;)

It wasn't funny so much as out of place, but today I saw a decorated road sign.  I was waiting for the bus, and I looked up and saw a normal white "no turn on red" (or something like that) sign, and someone had taken a marker and drawn a few pretty little decorative swirls in the upper left hand corner.  It looked pretty nice, maybe I'll suggest it to my alderman ;)
