Hilarious and Crazy Signage, Part 13

“QUANTUM SHOT” #588
Link – by A. Abrams

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)

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”!

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.

This sign is actually quite truthful and interesting. You can do something else, while your car will drive itself. -

This supposed to be the “Green Beach”, I think:

This is the right approach:
