Hilarious and Crazy Signage, Part 13
“QUANTUM SHOT” #588
The more you stare at some of them, the more befuddled you become
Some signs are certain to crack you up, some signs are likely to infuriate you. In any case, hardly a human being will come out of this experience unaffected. Perhaps, some would even pledge to enter the sign design business, just to keep the streets unpolluted by the atrocities you are about to see (or, on the contrary, become urban art junkies to seek out more examples of sign madness)
Read other parts of our “Weird Signs Series”, all 10 of them! We’ll start with a truly wonderful vintage sign (for those who did not hear about electricity yet – this sign must be really old)
Warning Signs. You’ve been Warned.
Too late now:
The sign on the right is all about hydrogen sulphide, a gas naturally occuring in manure pits and sewers. Those who dare these noxious areas, are exposed to the deadly danger. This gas is heavier than air and induces a sudden coma. “Death can be immediate”!
…and some non-sensible ones:
If this sign is real, then it is a cruel joke:
A few Asian ones, including the epic Temple Admission Rules:
Warnings that are more than simply warnings. This one, for example, is a handy guide on how to destroy fish. Warning: graphic content!
Parking warnings should be collected and published as a book. Hmm…. Remember, you heard this idea at Dark Roasted Blend first.
Traffic and Other Road Signs
Some drivers must be laughing their head off.
Palatine Express Road in Suburban Chicago:
This sign is actually quite truthful and interesting. You can do something else, while your car will drive itself. -
District 9 artifact:
Signs for pedestrians are interesting, too:
SImply Unique Stuff
This hotel is good. GOOD. Trust us.
Ways to be polite:
Dog food for humans:
Heroic name, quite befitting a British soldier (seen in Matlock Bath village, Derbyshire, England):
Toungue-in-cheek store name from the same village:
Make your choice:
Mysterious sign in the Moscow Metro (“Prospect Mira” subway station):
Bathroom Comedy, Written in Signage
You have to be at the right time in the right place, but sometimes it’s hard to figure out the right door:
I am not sure if this one true, or not, but it’s hilarious:
Misspelt Wonders and Other Broken English
This one promises “Ovary and Kidney Maintenance” (for those willing to try new experiences) -
Mitsu… oh wait -
This supposed to be the “Green Beach”, I think:
Fake Asian brands are entertainment in its own right:
Labels, Charts and Other Printed Word
First, a very cool sticker for a certain type of TV watching (more info) -
… and a variation on that theme:
Do you ever read the fine print and disclaimers? If you do, you may be in for a surprise -
Very mysterious product, spotted in a Dubai mall -
This sign is very…. unreasonable:
This is the right approach:
“Training Your Adopted Dog”. The “dog” in question tends to disagree…
And finally, wonderful interaction of birds with signs: wishful thinking, shock of recognizing yourself, etc. -
