New Monday Photo Shoot: #27: Strange And Silly Signs

"For business reasons, I must preserve the outward signs of sanity."

-Mark Twain

New Monday Photo Shoot #27: Show us a sign that's unusual in some way - even if you have to fake it!

-Karen Funk Blocher, of the blog, Outpost Mavarin

"It was ordained at the beginning of the world that certain signs should prefigure certain events."

-Marcus Tullius Cicero

I have showed you all these photos before at some point, but I think they are interesting, and amusing enough to be seen again. :) The photographed the first sign here in the East Bay, many years ago. At first glance it might appear like just another sign, but if you really look at it, you see the obvious problem. I titled the photo, "No Way Out" because if you drive up the hill of that one way street, you can't legally drive back down! LOL. Hysterical! It still makes me laugh to this day!

How many times have you been given a choice as to whether you want to venture down the road to HELL?!

I have to admit I was remembering your one way sign when I came up with this. But 9 days a week! That's a good one too!

There's a little roadside sign on the way to work that says "Poop wanted!" But I haven't managed a photo yet.

These are great! I so love a good (odd) sign. I'm going to post this weekend...maybe tonight!

Hugs for all 9 days,
