In Weird NJ, they had a sign from a border town in Pennsylvania that says "WOAH SPEED BUMP." It's a legit, government-made sign.

I took this picture of the bulletin board at my kids' school.

Maybe they should rethink what makes for a healthy lifestyle.

"Pork with black fungus" reminds me of a .sig file I saw back in my BBSing days: "Red meat bad for you? No, red meat is GOOD for you. Fuzzy blue-green meat is bad for you."

I wish I'd managed to get a photo of the strip-mall where the signs over the shops didn't quite line up with the actual businesses, so that the wall over the entrance read

DENTIST

but painted on the glass immediately below that was

BRAKES RELINED

The debate still goes on in Texas if to use the motto Don't Mess With Texas. My husband says,why not mess with Texas, it messes with us.
There are already those signs along the roads. Personally I think it runs better to the one Don't Mess With Texas, Remember the Alamo. We did WIN that one didn't we? HA HA

I was at the license bureau the other day and saw signs at every window stating:

Due to new software
your wait will now
be longer.
Sorry for the
inconvenience.


That's why I love our government. Upgrading to make life worse!

This thread reminds me of one time a couple years ago in HS. They had the marquee say someting like "We love Track" around track season. Nothing so unsual about that, right?

Well, apparently, someone decided they were going to have some fun and trade the "T" for "C". So, naturally, the sign read "We Love Crack" after doing that. I didn't know about this until someone mentioned it to me and by the time I went outside with my camera, they had switched it back.

Man, would that picture have been funny to have.

Does it come in a huge crate marked "FRA-GEE-LAY," I wonder? Can we put it in the front window?
