40 Questionable Signs That Didn’t Need To Exist, But Since They Do, We’re Gonna Make Fun Of Them


Signs are supposed to help you out and make things easier for you. For instance, a sign will direct you to the location you intend to go to, or it could also remind you not to hand-feed the animals at the zoo.

These are what we call normal signs, but there are some signs that end up raising a lot of questions. You know, the ones you see and go, “Huh? What the heck?” Maybe you even take a picture, because no one is going to believe you without some hard photo evidence.

As it turns out, there’s an entire Facebook group dedicated to documenting these examples of so-called “Useful, Unsuccessful, and Unpopular Signage.” No need to go searching yourself, though; we’ve curated some of the highlights just for you. And so, without further ado…

Have a nice day

This seems like a trap. “Forget all your responsibilities?” “Have an ice cream?” If you listen to to this sign and end up in the back of a pickup truck with a black hood over your head, don’t say we didn’t warn you.

Facebook/ Josh Klauder

That being said, it also isn’t very inclusive. What about people with grass allergies, huh? Too sniffly to kidnap? They get ice cream too, yeah? If not, the kidnappers’ customer satisfaction department is going to be hearing from us, mark our words.

Chill out!

Man, if it’s too hot to change the sign, we can’t imagine what it must feel like to be packed into that tiny church elbow to elbow with your fellow servant of the Lord. Some might even say it’s…hot as hell in there.

Facebook/ Dana Scott

Sin Bad. Jesus Good. What further details do we need, exactly? Seems pretty straightforward to us. You know what? Reverend Alexander is going to have to come to us. She needs to work for our salvation; it’s what the Lord would want.

The missing letter

Apparently, a storm passed through and blew over this sign in juuuuust the right way. Hopefully the owner decides to keep it like this. After all, that’s probably what they said when they saw all of the property damage from the storm.

Facebook/ Heidi Larsen

In fact, we think this makes the home more inviting. Think about it: If you saw “oh HELLO” written on the side of the house, you’d be at least a bit creeped out. But “oh HELL”—now that’s something everyone can relate to.

Evil stuff

We can almost see it: The lights are dim. The smell of incense wafts through the beer brewery changing room (…Or is that just Ajax? Eh, guess it doesn’t matter; focus.) The father peers down solemnly at the innocent newborn. This will be the key to eternal life!

Facebook/ Morgan Lindsay

Well, depending on how much sleep he got last night, Dad may or may not be imagining that scenario. In reality, all he’s going to get is a soiled diaper and a weary acknowledgement from the wife. You know, maybe we understand now why a brewery has a changing room in the first place.

Genuine art

We must say that Daniel over here has some really artistic capabilities. A whole Lego block! You’d certainly get a prize for that. And at the young age of 17? It’s unbelievable. We can’t wait for this prodigy’s MoMA debut.

Facebook/ Ash Solomon Mills

Here’s the funny part: There’s got to be at least one pretentious idiot who sees this and tries to defend it as some sort of nuanced critique on world capitalism and the death of youthful ignorance. Our suggestion? Put it on eBay and see how far “Worm” can go.

Save them

Now THIS is a moral dilemma. On the one hand, we don’t have that kind of money. Times are tough, after all. But on the other hand, some things are more important than financial security. We know what we must do.

Facebook/ Taylor Alois

It’s 2022. How the heck is the mullet still not considered a human rights violation under international law? The amount of emotional trauma this hairstyle must cause these poor kids…the thought makes us shudder. Do your part today to prevent this cruelty; we beg you.

Aha!

Out of all the places in the world, this sign was found in the bathroom of an office. This is what happens when company policy preaches “synergy” and conformity. Human creativity is going to find an outlet in one way or another.

Facebook/ Liza Kowalewski

What would be really cool is if everyone left the bathroom humming “Take on Me” by A-ha. Imagine HR’s faces. After all; it is a catchy song. Whatever you do, though, don’t think about singing it. Seriously, we’re warning you…we’ll tell your supervisor.

Pining for a cone

If you’re a dad, you just chuckled. Don’t lie to us; we’re calling you out. For real, though; we don’t know why dad jokes get all the hate that they do. They can be funny, we guess. Totally, sometimes, maybe, depending on your mood…anyone?

Facebook/ Amber Hamilton

Someone must have tried to actually order ice cream in a pine cone, right? What happens in that case? They better have them in stock, because sometimes you just need a little texture with your double mint chip with sprinkles. Don’t knock it ’til you try it.

Lost in the sauce

Look, we get it; work can get stressful, especially at a bar. During peak service hours, there is almost no time to think. All that stress has to go somewhere…and thus, the “crying shed” was born. Walk by and listen to the stifled sobs of someone pretending to flirt with drunk people for minimum wage.

Facebook/ Haley Smith

In our uneducated opinion, a workplace where the employees regularly feel the need to cry is bad enough. Add alcohol in and, well, you’ve probably heard this story before. Maybe management should less money on pinball machines and more money on an HR department.

Law-abiding citizen

Sure, we’ll obey your sign. Kids are filthy and snotty anyways. Yessir, we’ll follow it to down to the letter…especially because it doesn’t say anything about adults. The design of the box isn’t our problem; we are depressed and Squishmallows are the cure. Take it up with our therapist.

Facebook/ Alexa Elena

Mark our words; the next time you pass by the…MiraLax…aisle (check the background), you’re going to see us three feet deep in a pile of colorful cotton plushies made in a sweatshop in China. The children can watch and learn.

Pretty descriptive

Phew; we were worried for a second there that we were eating actual chicken. Village Market doesn’t get enough credit; “sandwich with chicken” is a difficult flavor profile to nail with just primordial ooze and chemicals, but they managed to pull it off.

Facebook/ Morgan Sabrina Guarino

Now, here’s our suggestion for preparation: Toast and butter a nice brioche bun, pile on your favorite toppings, and stick this marvel of modern science in there. What you have before you is a “Sandwich That Tastes Like Sandwich With Chicken Sandwich.” Now that’s a mouthful!

I’m with stupid

Man, there are so many possibilities for this sticker. Yeah, you could use it for student drivers, but this is basically a “clear the road” sign. Slap this on your vehicle and no one is going to think about tailgating you ever again.

Facebook/ Jonathan Bradley

And honestly, you should get a couple more for those few drivers who could only be described as “special.” Show them just how much you appreciate their effort to overcome the challenge of having a smaller-than-average brain. They should be recognized for their perseverance!

Jeepers creepers

We seriously don’t know what’s wrong with the person who put this sign up. There’s no shot this was done out of genuine concern for the paint job; no, this guy is one to keep a few feet away from at least.

Facebook/ Alexandra Isabelle

Also: The rules apply to this man (he’s definitely a man) as well. If we don’t see this dude fully strip down before entering the car, then what’s the point of making rules in the first place? All bets are off.

Thank you for the information

If this is the sign in front of the store, we can’t imagine what kind of chaos exists in the actual work culture. Funnily enough, the only other establishments that have hours as temperamental as this business are government offices.

Facebook/ Emily Galowitz

Here’s what we’re going to do: We’re going to go in, pick out an object, go to the cashier, check the price, and then say that we changed our minds and want to pay another price. Maybe they’ll get the message; probably not.

Mind-boggling

As much as we appreciate this artist’s attempt to revive the Dada movement, it’s 2022 and we need to conserve paper for things more useful than Turkey Dave Grohl. A suggestion: Spray paint is not only more environmentally friendly, but also more permanent.

Facebook/ Parn Barger

This person is stuck in the “OMG so random” MySpace days. This is that person in your school who would go around spewing the most unfunny stuff but who would have an ironclad conviction that they were destined to be the next George Carlin or Dave Chappelle. Was it worth the Reddit karma, dude?

Anti-Song Requests

There are certain songs that only a chosen few have the right to cover: “The Thrill Is Gone” by BB King, “Voodo Child” by Jimi Hendrix, you get the idea. But then there are those songs that no one is allowed to cover because they are too accessible.

Facebook/ Daniel W. Bigler

Along with the obligatory “Wonderwall” and most Green Day songs, “Brown Eyed Girl” by Van Morrison fits squarely into this category. No, we don’t want to hear Pudgy White Uncle A Few Beers Deep #3478’s rendition, but thank you for asking.

Your best (and only) memory

It’s good they put this sign here, because otherwise it’s unlikely that most people would remember too much of their time in Vegas. Take your Instagram photos now, because there’s a chance you won’t leave with enough money to pay your next phone bill.

Facebook/ Greg Schuette

Las Vegas is truly the only place in the world where you’d see a sign for a sign. It’s also the only place in the world built specifically for the purpose of making you feel pumped up about losing all your money and morals. But hey; drinks are free.

On the border

Signs like these are a definite test for people who never read the directions all the way through in school before starting the assignment. In an ironic turn of events, though, those people would probably have a BETTER opinion of the restaurant.

Facebook/ Rita Ochoa

I mean, hey, sometimes you just crave a thick, sloppy meat burrito. Sounds good to us. And then we can get Mexican food afterwards. Usually we wouldn’t do something like this, but if they say they’re the best on the planet, they need to prove it.

Peeping Tom

Nonono; this isn’t how you do business. First of all, what’s the point of installing cameras in the bathroom if you don’t want to catch people misbehaving? If you’re going to be a little weirdo, at least do it correctly. We’d respect that more.

Facebook/ Aubrey Megan Worrell

And second of all, if you’re going film us, we want cash. You can’t just use our name and likeness like this for free. We’ve got families to feed. And yeah, you can say no, but then we’ll just answer nature’s call on your floor. It’s here or there; your pick.

Spelling misteighkes

Here’s how we know that this restaurant is owned by US white people: You know about those silly Karens who can’t bare the thought of their child being average, so they give them unique names like “Keighleigh” or “Kell-c,” right?

Facebook/ Joseph Shafer

Well, read the sign. We rest our case (or rather, ceighse). But let’s pretend that Italeigh is an authentic Italian spelling for a sec. Only in America would a cheesesteak, which is quintessential Philidelphia fare, by the way, be considered Italian.

I wanna reach out and touch the flame…

In 1987, Irish rock band U2 released Joshua Tree, an album many fans consider to be the band’s best. The person who named this street must have been a huge U2 fan, because it’s thanks to him that we can finally say we’ve found Where the Streets Have No Name.

Facebook/ Jay Lewis

Man, if only Bono could see this. He’d probably break into spontaneous song and then donate a few million dollars more to underprivileged brown kids in Africa to feel good about himself. God, he’s such a generous and definitely-very-in-touch person. According to him, “It’s all I can do.”

We’ve got something to say

As a kid, we once had the privilege of coming across a freshly-laid panel of sidewalk. We could draw or write anything and it would be preserved for decades or more. What did we choose to draw? A smiley face.

Facebook/ Gwin Condon

At least this person showed some actual conviction with their concrete scribbles. It seems that kids simply may not understand the gravity of the opportunity before them. Oh well, maybe it’s profound for whoever wrote it. Everyone at their own pace.

Uh, 9-1-1?

Yeah, this is a self-report. You really think we’re going to let this Hannibal Lector wannabe do his spinal decompression hooey on us? Nuh-uh. If you make an appointment here, your screaming is going to be much more than just metaphorical.

Facebook/ Ashley Linn

You know who doesn’t have a repurposed McDonald’s billboard outside their building? An actual doctor. Your body might not literally whisper, but a physical exam can still say a lot. If you think something is wrong, go see someone who actually went to med school.

Oh, stop it, you!

My, what a way with words you have! At least wine and dine us first next time before getting all frisky. Meow.

…You know you can stop reading whenever you want, right? What? You LIKED it? Well all right then; whatever you’re into is your business and not ours.

Facebook/ Mary Mae Jackowski

It seems like it’s impossible to arrange these phrases in a way that doesn’t end up sounding like Gram-Gram having a stroke (bless her heart, the poor woman). But the cake looks tasty either way, and after all, it’s the thought that counts.

Minty fresh

What a generous business. These guys are offering free toothbrushes to their patients before treatment. We bet the toothpaste is a proprietary blend, in fact. Made in house! What a treat it is; what a happy morning, wow. Thanks doc.

Facebook/ Amanda Morgan

Honestly, we don’t know how he does it. Dentistry is a time-consuming profession, and even with a full team, it must be a pretty big challenge to find the endurance to impregnate all those toothbrushes. We’ll have to ask for pointers after the teeth cleaning.

Nothing wike a good fwostee

Evweewun who knows us knows that ouw favowite fwuit is stwabewwee, so when we saw this pictuwe, we scweamed like wittwe giwws. Wendee’s weawee knows how to bwing the heat when it comes to woad twip stapwes. Takes us back to chiwdhood.

Facebook/ Abigail Williams

It seems wike they got Ewmew Fudd to wite the sign. Well woudn’t you know it, he wecentwy got waid off and we hiwed him! In fact, he’s editing this pawt of the awticle wite now. Bet you coudn’t even teww.

GILF material

Dang, we’d take this version of the Coppertone brand over the one with that dumb girl any day of the week. Ollie knows how to work them curves something mean. He definitely knows he’s got it, and we very much admire the confidence.

Facebook/ Rachel Stratton

We’ll be the first to say it; sometimes we see a man with wispy white locks and a belly that would make Barney feel inadequate and think to ourselves, “Yup, he could get it.” You’ve heard of MILFs, you’re acquainted with DILFs—friends, let us introduce you to the GILF.

Marking your territory

If you need to keep people away from your box of chocolates at the workplace, take notes, because this is exactly how it’s done…as long as the people in your workplace are cowards. You think that’s going to stop us? Ha. Haha. That’s cute.

Facebook/ Amy Le

No, no; this is what you do: get some kind of chocolate that is irregularly-shaped and place one or two chocolate-covered crickets among them. Don’t give a warning, and next time the chocolate thief will be a bit more reluctant to mess with the likes of you.

Horror story

Legends tell of a mysterious beast that roams these woods terrorizing reasonably affluent nuclear families on the way to scenic mountain getaways. There are few survivors, but those who do manage to cling to their lives describe something akin to a large sheep. However, this is no ordinary sheep…

Facebook/ Dawn Watson

…It has three horns. Beware, fair traveler (and consumer of tuna casserole), for this beast will do terrible thing to any human with whom it crosses paths. Terrible, unspeakable things. We would tell you, but, well, our PR department says that we can’t continue on with this joke, so—ahem—on to the next picture!

Motivation

Here’s the thing: Had the words on the poster been arranged with at least the slightest bit of planning, this would have been the faux-motivational masterpiece of every school principal’s dreams. Instead, we have…poignant commentary on the human experience, we guess.

Facebook/ Christopher Lee

Mirror on the there Mirror Wall is a Leader in Us All…now that’s some deep stuff. Obviously the person who made this was a fan of William Faulkner. Or may Joseph Biden. Donald Trump? Well, it’s definitely someone who has trouble forming cohesive sentences one way or another.

Monopoly money

Comrades, at long last we’ve found it. This is the evidence we needed. The jig is up, corporate overlords—we know it’s all a ruse. Your “lines of credit,” your talk of “mortgages” and “loans” and “interest rates”—it’s all nothing more than monopoly money! Enough with the lies!

Facebook/ Lindsay Bosel

Your days of exploiting the working class are numbered. Be afraid, for we are the many, and—hold on, the phone’s ringing; we’ve gotta take this…Hello? Yes? Mhm…well, thanks very much, sir, I’ll see you tomorrow, bright and early—Sayonara, you dumb plebs; we just got a promotion! Yahoo, we’re making the big bucks now! Capitalism rules!

A message from everybody

Wow, cool, dude; the church just totally owned men! Pack it up, people; the patriarchy is no more. Hopefully this church is in Delaware or something; otherwise this sign is actually going to have the opposite of the intended effect.

Facebook/ Lakisha Sparrow

Granted, it’s helpful they included the invitation to services in case you’re curious. After all, the Bible is world-renowned for its pro-women message. Kidding! Too bad Jesus wasn’t there to backhand the living crud out of the dudes who were writing the thing in the first place.

The best kind of appetizer

NOW we’re talking. Screw all your fancy cheeses, smoked meats, and dried fruits; if this is the most action we can get, we’ll take it. Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it. And by “it,” we mean fish gonads.

Facebook/ Amanda Wilson

What a way to start a dinner party, although you best make sure this is the kind of message you want to send when you bring this puppy out. Like we said before, what you do in your free time is totally up to you (and what we do in ours is up to us).

You should call her

There’s a lot of innuendo on this list, isn’t there? We’ve exhausted damn near every sex joke we had in the tank at this point. But that Push Pop in the bottom left obviously hasn’t read before this picture, because he likes what he sees.

Raquel DeMoura Barrett

Lollipops and squirting bottles of viscous liquid…man, we really need to get our head out of the gutter. But on the other hand, who wouldn’t want to be the Push Pop in the situation? Push Pop: Suck it and see.

Puzzled

We have taken a good close look at this sign around ten times now, but we can’t for the life of us figure out what is being communicated. Here’s our guess: It’s a portable prosthetics installation booth for people who want to get a leg up on life.

Facebook/ Shaun Morris

Or maybe: It’s an advertisement to be one of the people who are “sawed in half” by a magician during magic shows. No doubt, the trick would be easier to orchestrate if the assistant didn’t have real legs to begin with!

Negative, my G

We appreciate the time and care that went into making this sign, but this is wasted effort, bro. No one believed the ice cream machine was going to be working, because it never is. That’s, like, the first rule of McDonald’s: Never ask for ice cream.

Facebook/ Macy Trussov

What’s the second rule of McDonald’s? If someone in a McDonald’s parking lot at 3am offers to buy you a Big Mac in exchange for one teensy favor, don’t accept unless you’re extremely desperate. Actually, maybe not even then.

A lot of variety

Did you know that a watermelon is 92% water? A cup of watermelon only has 40 calories, which makes it the perfect fruit to eat on a diet when you’re craving something sweet. Many people also probably don’t know that they grow on a vine.

Facebook/ Alexia Maneschi

Apparently, the word “watermelon” first appeared in the English dictionary in 1615. What a genius that dude must have been. And here’s our last watermelon fact: If you bring a whole-a** watermelon to work and store it in the fridge, you’re going to piss of your coworkers.

True love

This one’s easy to explain: The restaurant is run by a married couple who has been together for many decades. At that point, fights are merely a further expression of love, because nothing says “I love you” like knowing exactly how to set your significant other off (and not in the fun way).

Facebook/ Danny Michel

This time, the customer gets to join in on the feud (how kinky!): If you guess which sign is right, your next meal is free. Of course, there is no right answer and everyone loses because the only good thing in life is food and now no one eats.

Wow!

That’s right; our employees definitely choose to get up every day and come to work at Taco Bell for starvation wages. They definitely wouldn’t rather be doing anything else right now. Don’t tip them, though; that’s a free hand out. Be nice and help us make sure they work for their right to survive.

Facebook/ Brandon Richter

To us this kind of sounds like the managers think the employees are dogs in a cage. “Do not feed. The room is air conditioned and they are listening to their favorite music. Do not abuse our animals! We love them like humans!”

That’s it

Well, this tells you just bout everything you need to know about how Michael’s is holding up these days. You’d think a certain, uh, period of time where no one could go outside would have boosted their sales, but apparently it just wasn’t enough and they had to cut costs somewhere.

Facebook/ Jon Conant

It’s okay; we know how it feels when someone’s expectation of you doesn’t match the reality you can provide. It’s a hard pill to swallow (not a large one, though), but you get over it in time. Stay strong, king.
