Snarky Signs

My abiding love for snarky signs began when our next door neighbors installed a swimming pool sign that read, “We don’t swim in your toilet. Please don’t pee in our pool.” Here are a few of my current faves:

Always helpful to know your proximity to hell: 

Traffic warnings with real impact:

People are so hard to control. And so, apparently, are penguins:

And for the grand finish (get it, Finnish?), my favorite:

    Hilarious! On the first one, I saw the name of the realtor before I read the “Not Haunted” message at the top. I thought it was a command.

  10. Signs are among my favourite travel experiences: Entering and leaving Hope, AZ- “You have found Hope.” “You are now beyond Hope.”

  11. Check out the tile inside the men’s room of a Jimmy John’s sandwich shop next time you get the chance. Those signs are funny to.

  12. The Finns have lots of great signs like that. When I lived in Finland, I enjoyed seeing all of them in English, Finnish, and Swedish.

      • Oh yes. A couple of years ago the world’s best comic was a Finn. Look him up on Youtube. He’s pretty funny. He talks about language often, mostly because Finnish is so different from other languages. There’s also a great comic called Finnish nightmares. Great humor on Finnish culture. Also, a great book, not written by a Finn, but about Finland, is How to Marry a Finnish Woman.

    My dad and I had a conversation the other day that went something like this:

    Me: Imagine how boring our lives would be if we were actually nice to each other.
    Him: Do we even know how to do that?
    Me: I think we only know how to communicate in trash talk.

    We are the king and queen of snark.
