What Were They Thinking?

They weren’t! Hilarious misnomers, horrendous spellings, “how-did-they-miss-that?” design fails… Life would be boring if everyone got everything right every time, right? Enjoy these prime, anything-but-boring “What were they thinking?” specimens, and have a great weekend!

  2. These are good. But you know, I’d kind of like that wiggly sign outside the church for my funeral … my friends would appreciate it …

  4. Wow, just goes to show you what can happen with dictating texts. I asked a friend to pray that an order of books would come in time for an upcoming book signing. She texted back, “Yes, I will pray for your b***s***.” I was takin’ a bath … oops, taken aback … thinking, “I thought she liked my books!” Turns out she meant to say “book shipment.”

  18. I will not laugh about misspellings or typos by people who are trying to speak a language other than their native language (just snickering a bit) but some of this stuff is hilarious. The Mickey Mouse pen, who was the genius putting the eraser on the end?
    The first one, the happy blow up figure, pointing to the funeral, made me think (and feel) the most. First reaction was a frown, “How wrong” but it was quickly followed by understanding. Some cultures (as well as some individuals) actually celebrate the life of the deceased -which always made sense to me. Perhaps it was meant to make the ones who knew the person well enough to attend a funeral, smile.

  23. My favorites are the “pain apple” and the Wyoming “incontinence.” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ When I was in a Third World country many years ago, one of my favorite signs was “Luggage disembowelment” at the train station. 🀣🀣

  24. A few more good reminders to check the spelling after you use the “speech to text” feature to write a message.
    On the other hand, I had to chuckle at the stairs with the “Carpet Design by M. C. Escher.” I wonder if M. C. Escher is a chiropractor who will do almost anything to drum up business.
