Last night, someone at dinner googled "stupid signs". This one got passed around and was entertaining. Do you have any favorites from that search?

I typed 'funny signs' in google images' search field and it took me to this page.

It was fun going through the funny sign pics..

The ones I loved are -

1. PUSH - if that doesn't work, PULL - if that doesn't work - We Must Be Closed.

2. DO NOT ENTER. Entrance Only.

3. Welcome to our "OOL". NOTICE THERE IS NO "P" IN IT. LET's KEEP IT THAT WAY!

And there are many more...

In the vein of the crocodile one, I once saw this sign on an Asian antiques store: "Unattended children will be given a free espresso and a puppy." Sorry, I don't have a picture of it though.

"Unattended children will be given a free espresso and a puppy."??? I saw one that said "Unattended children will be sold as slaves"... (It was some museum in Oregon )

There's lots of pictures of that saying although not the specific one you saw. (or an equivalent one for kittens.) Here's one.

The one Martha saw also exists:

There's also "unattended children will be sold to the circus"

I was hoping for "unattended children will be given pie" but no such luck. We will have to make that one ourselves.

I did find "unattended children will be given candy and a kazoo"
