Have you ever driven down the highway or any road for that matter and while passing a road sign had another meaning pop into your mind???

Some that come to mind:

"Slippery When Wet"
"Squeeze Left"
"Raised Manhole Covers"

Errrrr.... if he were German, I'd suggest he's talking about this one:

I love the signs on the doors in the U.S. that say:

AUTOMATIC
CAUTION
DOOR

if you read them literally.

So, it's a caution door... Then what's wrong with the automatic design?  Nuts



Up, up and away!

Some more from Germany:

"narrowed road"

"crosswind", not "use condoms for road bjs"

"shore"

"Autobahn" Big grin

"end of Autobahn"  Crying

"difficult traffic directions" - somewhat appropriate description, isn't it?

LOL N243NW!! That's the one I always like.

Around here it is signed as...

SLOW
CHILDREN
AT PLAY

I always wonder what the hell the fast ones are doing.

We have the SLOW CHILDREN AT PLAY sign by me too. Those Japanese signs are hilarious, if I ever go there I will laugh my @$$ off if I see the sign.

They're all surfing A.Net and reading silly road sign topics.

I also like the flagger sign whenever there's no sign next to it that says "FLAGGER". Looks like someone with a semaphore flag missing.


Cheers!
-N243NW  Big thumbs up

Sorry to burst your bubble ... but the Japanese bus sign was a bit doctored up. Here is the real sign ...



The seats are for:
- people with babies
- pregnant women
- old folks
- people with injuries

Cheers,
Pete

That sign found on the Japanese metro trains is freaking hhhhhilarious!!! Thanks for making me laugh... after having just contributed a doom N gloom post in another thread.
Is it only people outside of Japan who see the humour in that sign? The authorities at the Japanese metro train service either have one hell of a wicked sense of humour, or.... um... They're just very odd  Laugh out loud
(Disclaimer: This post is in no way (meant as) an assault on the intelligence of the Japanese people. I certainly hope no one of Japanese decent or origin will be offended by my post. If so, I do apologize. I still find the sign funny as hell, though Laugh out loud)
