Yeah, Right

Good luck collecting on any infractions.

I Seeee You

We found the creepiest bus wrap on the internet. You’re welcome.


Hard to say what’s worse — the sign itself, or the fact it was still posted.

Hardly Very Sporting

Not the most kid-friendly combination of signs.

I Sort Of See It…

“Infection Free” or “Free Infection”?

Bottom Out

For the sake of the business, let’s hope people don’t read this sign from top to bottom like they would every other sign in the world.

Just How?

A totally useless sign, no two ways about it.

Quote, Unquote

This sign, on second thought, seems just right.

Hey, Be Nice

A structure fire is bad enough; let’s at least make sure people sleep soundly through it.

Deliciously Soothing

Either this is an unfortunate design, or the spa is deadly serious about its buy-one, get half-off promotion.
