Funny Signs and Bizarre Billboards

Photos of Unexpectedly Funny Signs

Have you ever seen a funny sign or billboard that made you go, "What?!!"

Do you remember the infamous "Cruise Ships Use Airport Exit" freeway sign outside of San Diego, or the old [ North South ↑ ] freeway sign outside Christiana Mall in Delaware?

This page is my collection of unintentionally funny signs, humorous church signs and othor visual humor inspired by the old website. I have gleaned them from Creative Commons photos, mostly those posted on Flickr.

Most of these signs are Creative Commons or public domain images I've collected over the years; some are photos by myself or my mother. (Thanks, Mom!)

Note: CLICK ON THUMBNAILS! There are multiple photos in each gallery.

Great signs! Enjoyed this lens!

kburns421 lm on July 14, 2012:

Haha these are great. I love funny signs. I especially liked the one about how "survivors will be shot again." I have a kinda funny sign picture where a store listed their hours, and they listed all seven days of the week separately, but the hours were the same every day. Gotta love it. Anyway, fun lens!

TheCandle LM on July 05, 2012:

I think I like the fence sign the best! I just posted a lens on signs from a bike ride. Not quite as funny as yours! Thanks for the humor.

GeniePark on June 28, 2012:

Lol, they are really funny. I totally love your lens. I'll be back for more.

StrongMay on April 19, 2012:

"Hi Five!". I came back a second time, and still had a good laugh.

You should find some signs in Greece. I was there 3 weeks ago. One sign said:

"Resaurant and hotel open all over the year."

Another at the airport in Athens:

"Battery Charging Station

Free of charge"

anonymous on April 09, 2012:

limited279 on January 21, 2012:

I like the one that was under the gas prices that said " apology with every fill up!" ....yeah right! AMAZING LENS... book marked and will be back!

flicker lm on January 19, 2012:

Wonderful! Lots of laughs here. I think my favorite was: "If you hit this sign, you will hit that bridge." Hehe.

Einar A on January 19, 2012:

zav on December 25, 2011:

Some fantastic signs there. Thanks for sharing them. Would be nice to actually get an apology as per sign, when filling up with fuel at today's prices! Its the least they could do :)

cgayanga on December 24, 2011:

MyFairLadyah2 on October 31, 2011:

I will return to this lens. Could not read it all at once. Very funny. Like some of the best of Jay Leno's "Headlines"

Odille Rault from Gloucester on October 30, 2011:

PS: I've added this lens to the "Lenses I Love" module in my lens on how to improve your life - a good laugh from reading a few signs like this each day is a good addition to improving quality of life! :)

Odille Rault from Gloucester on October 30, 2011:

What a FABulous lens!! Thanks for the laughs! I love funny signs - I took photos of a few on a recent holiday. Great ones here! :)

TheBestGadgets on October 24, 2011:

I love these funny signs. Thumbs up and I've featured this lens on my lensography of the best funny pictures on squidoo:

modernchakra on October 23, 2011:

I love lenses like these and know it takes a long time to put together a solid list and get all the pictures... I love the 3 apples for $ but were oranges instead. Impulse buyers beware!

ananimoss2 on October 12, 2011:

I loved them all, but the church signs! Moses was a basket case! I laughed a lot. Thank you!

bhthanks on September 22, 2011:

I enjoyed it! Very Funny stuff!

Aquavel on September 20, 2011:

Hilarious lens! Thanks for the laughter and the fun!!!

Ellen Gregory from Connecticut, USA on September 09, 2011:

I always enjoy reading these "what were they thinking" signs

sidther lm on September 09, 2011:

This was hysterical! It reminds me of a letter we just got from our Home Owners Association- "construction of the full sized basketball court is complete and the court is open- violators of the rules will lose privileges.... (bunch of rules) RULE #8 No groups or team sports of any kind will be tolerated at the basketball court" I will have to go see if there are any signs at the new court!

anonymous on September 08, 2011:

These are the signs of the times perhaps! If you want to fix a punctured Tyre at a roadside shop - don't be surprised to land in at a 'Puncher Shop!' Pretty cool signs! :)

dejaviewer on September 07, 2011:

"Beware of..well just beware" rofl the funniest sign

darciefrench lm on September 03, 2011:

This lens has been featured by another Squid Angel, I have been here before and I am back again for more funny signs :)

Chazz from New York on September 03, 2011:

Great signs! Thanks for the chuckles. Blessed on the Squid Angel Labor Day Bus Tour.

TheBestGadgets on August 30, 2011:

Had a good laugh with these, thanks. I saw one once 'bride to be killed in hit and run'. Obviously they meant bride-to-be and it was very sad, but when you see it it look like 'bride to-be-killed' and you think - why doesn't someone stop it from happening?

darciefrench lm on August 20, 2011:

These are really fun signs - I had a good chuckle :)

Cynthia Sylvestermouse from United States on August 14, 2011:

Wow! Some of these are really funny! Loved the bow comment you added, but my favorite had to be the "flashing" sign. I am visiting the entertainment neighborhood today on our "back to school" angel bus tour and I am pleased to leave behind my blessing here :)

yayas on August 09, 2011:

You found some really great ones. Stopping to think before posting a sign is apparently not a prerequisite. Thanks for some good laughs.

julietarot lm on August 04, 2011:

Brilliantly funny!

anonymous on July 28, 2011:

pawpaw911 on July 18, 2011:

These are a hoot!

Wednesday-Elf from Savannah, Georgia on January 12, 2011:

This collection of funny signs is VERY funny! I've seen a few myself over the years -- especially church signs! My favorite (but I never took a picture) was in the window of a restaurant in the South run by a family relocated from Chicago -- sign said "Parking for Cubs Fans Only". :-).

PS: Your 'mom' is an excellent photographer!

AWildDog on December 21, 2010:

I love looking at these and having a laugh about them. Nice lens.

Lisa-Marie-Mary on December 10, 2010:

Omigosh, I love this lens! These signs are too funny! Our Burger King recently had a sign I meant to take a picture of and never got a chance. It said "Buy One Get One" and underneath that something about some chicken sandwich. I thought that was hysterical. If you buy one sandwich, guess what? We'll give you one sandwich.


vernessataylor lm on December 03, 2010:

Hadn't laughed that hard all day! Boy, those church signs will get you going. Great idea for someone to capture them; luv it that you shared them here.

Tagsforkids on December 03, 2010:

Some funny stuff, I loved it! :)

ZazzleEnchante on November 05, 2010:

Great lens...definitely made me laugh and brought a smile to my face!

jgelien on October 29, 2010:

I haven't laughed so hard in a long while. Scared the cat witless! I am favoriting this lens for when I need another pick-me-up.
