Funny Sign Photos Taken by Mom and Me
This page was originally part of my Funny Signs and Bizarre Billboards gallery, but Mom has sent me so many funny sign pictures that I've had to create a new gallery for them.
There are funny church signs, unusual license plates and bumper stickers, and a lot of very strange shop signs. Some are meant to be funny on purpose; other signs are just plain weird.
Without further ado, I give you... Fish Grooming & Other Odd Signs.

Utah Has Funny Church Signs
Then Again, Funny Church Signs Are Everywhere...
Here's a special shout-out for the United Methodist Church of St. George. It seems they've decided that funny church signs are the best way to catch the attention of stray Mormons.
All photos by my Mum.
Utah Also Has Many Other Strange Signs
Next our Utah Golf Nut vanity plate:
Outside a local restaurant:
A cunning marketing ploy (think about it):
Cute sign in a diner:
Pet groomers and kennels tend to have quirky slogans and names:
An odd combination of things to be selling:
(It really is all one store -- they have the same thing painted on a van parked out front.)
And what gun owner doesn't want a transparent bra? (Yes, I know what they meant -- Mom didn't.)
Oh no! It's the end of civilization! With typos!

Funny Sign Pics from Utah 2010
Just in case you weren't clear what metaphor they're using to sell cars...
This billboard appears right after the first.
I can't remember what kind of shop this was:
"No vacancy. Also, no hotel." (The hotel was torn down.)
Window decal on a truck...
I don't understand them; I just post them.
I feel so reassu ed by their competence.
I like their subtle disclaimer. ("It's not our fault; he made us do it!")

What IS It With This State? (And Why Does Mom Always Have a Camera?)
Mom just sent me the latest batch of funny signs from hip and happenin' Utah.
Truth in advertising! Wow.
Remember, this country invented marmite (made from real marmots).
More truth in advertising!
Yet more truth in advertising.

The housing meltdown is getting worse.
And people are hanging onto what they have.
Only in Texas...
Also in Texas.
Only in southern California...

Toys for Grown-Ups (I Hope)
Funny Novelty Items in a Store
Mom found these twisted toys at a check-out counter and surreptitiously snapped them.
They've got to be aimed at college students with their warped sense of humor, NOT children.
Oh no, it's real

Most of these are from Utah, except for the shark and weird house, which are in Houston.

A Few Funny Signs by Yours Truly
I Rarely Have My Camera Handy for a Good Snap, But...
Corona Del Mar, CA: Skateboarders must love this spot. I approve of leaving the tree alone, though.
Alewife T-station, Boston. Wait. Where do large cars enter the building?
Hurray! I want to go to a transvestite doctor! (Chinatown, Los Angeles)
From a defunct sushi bar in Irvine. Look closely at the mysteriously empty dish...

Funny stuff, thanks!

These were great too! I especially loved the church sign that said "forgive your enemies- it messes with their heads!"

Another great lens.

Those are funny - what a fantastic lens!
Paul from Liverpool, England on February 09, 2011:
I love these. Lensrolled to my odd book titles, if you don't mind.

@NoYouAreNot: Actually, in this case, it's not even nature's way: narwahl eat fish and small squid. The tusk is only used among males to establish who's got the longest, um... well. It's not used as a weapon.
I'm sure those toys are meant for college students with a warped sense of humor, not children.

I find it more and more difficult to blees a lens which is not funny. Yours is up to my criteria today:)
NoYouAreNot on February 06, 2011:
I also see your lens-crafting is always improving. You're a study case, Ellen!
NoYouAreNot on February 06, 2011:
Yes, she really has an eye for humour. Really made me laugh. I didn't understand a few of the signs or of the legends, but I'm Greek anyway. Happy I can read and write that much in English. The Avenging Creatures surely are twisted! I'm really glad you did not display the Avenging Narwhal as your Amazon link. This is Nature's way, after all, but I'd hate having little children disboweling little seals for fun (shudder).

These remind me of the "Eat the kids first" license plate.
Those toys are weird!

Your mom is really cool taking all of those photos. She's got a great eye for humor.
