On Sign Messages

Sign Sign everywhere a sign
Blocking out the scenery breaking my mind
Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign

(Five Man Electrical Band)

your-choiceComedian Bill Engvall’s classic routine involves giving a person a sign to wear for stupid behavior. On the other hand, off-the-wall signs also exist. So here are some strange messages on signs (with my comments).

Some I’ve Seen

  • Used Cows for Sale (As opposed to a new cow?)
  • Tattoos while You Wait (Is there another option?)
  • Speed Limit Next 25 Miles (No limit before or after?)
  • Maximize Your Energy Costs (Oh great, higher monthly payments!)

Others Worth Mentioning

  • Touching Wires Causes Instant Death: $200 fine (Reasons to garnish a will!)
  • Caution: Water on Road During Rain (Brilliant!)
  • Genuine Fake Watches (Oh … they’re telling the truth!)
  • Wanted: Preowned sales people (Still owned or once owned?)
  • Parking for Customers Waiting for Drive-thru Orders Only (Make your own comment on that one!)

Life is full of off-the-wall signs. Since these are only a few, feel free to comment on ones you know.
