I have been collecting photos of funny signs I've seen. Some are fractured english, some just end up looking like something else. My favorite is this one from Thailand. It looks to me like it says "RUN" backwards. Which I find funny, because the 2 weeks I spent in Thailand I never saw anyone stop at a stop sign...

Here is one from Australia:


This was in the pond under the sign:


No Worries, Mate, I won't lean over the railing!

I don't have the town sign, but of course, to go along with Intercourse, PA, there is the lovely town of "Blue Balls"

Aloha WenikiTiki! My wife and I are connoisseurs of signs as well! Here's a few we found in France:
The first two are from Disneyland Paris.
Looks like these people really want off this ride:


And this was on a fountain. NOT a drinking fountain. An actual fountain.


This one was in a hallway, possibly in the louvre museum. I thought it was funny how the guy is running, not walking and the flames are right on his heels. Damn, I'm getting outta here.


Last one, from a power/electrical box, reminds me of the ending from Raiders of the Lost Ark:


Now here's a few from Hawaii, more beach oriented, but still funny.
Look at the size of this wave, I mean tsunami:


Another one, somewhat similar, but note the *ouch* lines radiating from the neck:


The last two have to be viewed together, one for man of war that float on the surface, and the second for jellyfish, which live below the surface. These signs are biologically correct! Amazing.... Note the stinging tentacles wrapped around the swimmer's legs.



Aloha!

My husband sent me a tube of toothpaste from Dubai, I wondered why he'd sent it until I realized it read CRUST instead of CREST.
