When good signs go bad, it’s probably best to fire the sign writer and exit stage left. Here are just a few of our favourite hilarious signpost fails.
Niche toilet sign
As marginalised groups go, you don’t get much more niche than this. DEPC Rights! When do they want them? As soon as they’ve flushed and washed their hands, of course.
2. Forward planning
When you’re sign writing, it’s always best to plan ahead and make sure you’ve got enough space to write exactly what you wa…
3. That’s not very PC
Wonder how many UKIP voters are putting their houses on the market and making a beeline for this cul-de-sac now? We’d imagine there’s a veritable smorgasbord of them.
4. Why it’s important to get your wording right…
Bury is a lovely town in Greater Manchester with a brilliant market. They’re an animal charity. They help save them. Not bury them. This is why thinking about wording on signs is important!
5. God moves in mysterious ways
We knew church was good for something. Perhaps encourage your nosy neighbour to pop along. Or your boss. They might really really like it there.
6. No way! Really?
A ground floor balcony is basically the floor. Don’t jump. Unless you don’t want to injure or harm yourself in any way.
7. An absolute bargain….wait…what?
Who can resist the lure of such an outstanding bargain. Buy 3…and pay for all 3. We’ll take 7.
8. Bye then!
OK, well that’s us gone…what? You want us to stay? Make your mind up!
9. Not waving, but drowning…LOLZ!
“Help! Help me! I’m drowning!”
“LOL, just hang on I need to get my iPhone, take a photo then tweet it – I’ll call the emergency services after!”
10. I don’t know many people that do like having shoes on their face, to be honest…
It’s a niche market, I think
11. Phew! Thanks for the warning!!!
Always good to know if he’s lurking somewhere…
12. Katy Perry will be thrilled!
This is what happens when you dedicate yourself to God and popular culture at the same time.
13. If you’re going to do it, do it in style…
Fall, but fall gracefully. They style it out…
14. Work for this considerate and empathetic company…
Sorry to hear Dave died. We’ll have his replacement start Monday. Must fit into his overalls, cos we can’t buy new ones.
15. Hell is…a garage forecourt
Buy your petrol here, or burn in hell. Or it could be Shell…we’re not sure.
