FUNNY SIGNAGE

As opposed to a deep shoal?
Keep away, but no warning ...
If the dock isn't lighted,, and the sign isn't lighted ...

I love the unlighted dock sign. It's priceless and a lawsuit waiting to happen.

I like the sound warning. So I guess as soon as you hear it, you have to run 100ft away instantly.

I remember when I was a boy, standing under a large ships steam horn. It took a few minutes for all the water to clear and several of us stood in excitement. Then it let rip with the most body shaking, ear splitting low sound that frightened the lot of us. We all had to put our fingers in our ears. But it was really exciting and I will never forget it.

Joe Siudzinski, in years of cruising about on his Seawind 1000, KatieKat, has come across numerous signs in his travels that are often amusing.

Here's a link to the page on his site dealing with signs, billboards, labels and menus:

Gord: Saw the "birthing" sign last year in Stonington. Cracked us up! Have a friend who's an OB/GYN. Sent her a framed photo of it. It hangs in her office now.

While there attended a fund raiser/party for fishermen's wives. The entertainment was a 50 piece steel drum band comprised of all locals. Who'da thought!

One of my favorites was on the door to a Toy Store in Sonora California it read --

Unattended children will be given a free kitten.

I always get a kick out of the 35 MPH speed limit signs along some Florida waterways. Strangely enough they are often violated.

I saw one on Cape Cod this summer that said:

Unattended children will be given a shot of espresso and a free puppy.
