Ailsa’s travel theme this week, is ‘Signs’. I’ve seen a few funny and strange signs on my travels:
This first one is not at all funny, and was a stark reminder of the terrible Tsunami which struck this beautiful seaside resort, in 2004.
This is on the wall of my sister-in-law’s patio in England. Her two younger sons are Irish born and bred. 🙂
This was a chocolate drink offered in a restaurant in England, and if you know anything about our South African president, you will understand why I found the description so apt.
Here is the name of a shop in Bali, selling replica watches, such as Rolex, Breitling, Cartier etc.. I think it should rather read “Bogus watches.” There was also a sign in the window advertising that they sell, “Genuine fake sunglasses.” 😆
I couldn’t resist snapping this sign above a Phuket massage parlour.
The name of this supermarket in the USA, really amused me. They sold excellent takeaway Sushi though.
I was really thrilled when I saw this iconic sign for the first time in real life.
On a visit to Coney Island, I wasn’t even remotely tempted to venture inside this establishment. Would you ever? 😯
This tombstone in Tombstone, Arizona, declares the fate of poor Lester Moore in verse. They didn’t call it ‘The Wild West’ for no reason. 🙂
Closer to home, I saw this outside a beach apartment block when we went for a walk today.
At our local hardware store, I had to smile at these signs for sale.
Well that’s all I can find at short notice. The funniest sign I’ve ever seen, and I don’t have a photo, was emblazoned above a restaurant in China. “Mr Beef – Seafood Restaurant. ” 😀

(My son and granddaughter arrived safely in Cape Town last night, where they will be for the weekend with friends, before flying to Durban on Monday morning. Roll on Monday. :))
Cool signs and the real picture of Lester’s tombstone.
Thanks, YC. Glad you liked it. 😀

I think you found the funniest signs in the world! I laughed at every one of them. The Irishman sounds like fun. I could do with some dancing and carrying on…
Thanks, Trish. My two Irish nephews are great at dancing and carrying on. 🙂

Love the ‘Family by appointment only’!!
Yes, that’s a really good one. I wouldn’t dare put it up here. 🙂
“Rich,Dark, Smooth, Zuma” Need i say more…..?
It says it all. 🙂
Just a pity the rich is money stolen, *sigh*
I know, and what can we do about it? Zilch!
Just sit by and watch the time fly by….
I am with Jo on this, all my favorites. Made me smile too. 🙂
Thanks, Myra. 🙂
Some very funny and clever signs! Love the headstone!
Thanks so much. Yes, that headstone really tickled me. 🙂
you really made my day with these signs…I cannot pick a favourite as I love them all
Thanks, Jo. Glad I gave you a giggle. 🙂
Brilliant! The Dog Owners reminds me of my uncle who used to fight with a neighbour about picking the dog’s droppings:-)
Thanks so much, cocoa. 🙂 Your uncle was quite right.
Wow! that is some collection of sign photos! Love the friends welcome/ beware of dog signs. And Irishman “for carrying on”??? 😆
Thanks, Madhu. Glad you found some of them amusing. 🙂
Great selection AD 🙂
Thanks, optie. Glad you enjoyed. 🙂
somehow I can’t see me enjoying that Zuma! 🙂
I didn’t order one either. 😀
Nice fun post!
Thanks so much, deepa. 🙂
Wow! These are really cool and fascinating signs. Whenever I go around town, there’s always a sign that stands out. fun post!

Lota of humor through travel and within the theme. Well done … and enjoy the time with your son and granddaughter!
Thanks, Frank. 😉
Rich, smooth, dark, YUM!
Cool signs. 🙂
Thanks, Gemma. You’re welcome to our Zuma. 😉
I’ve seen a few of those myself,the one’s over the USA. I used to drive past the Hollywood one weekly in a tractor trailer,LOL! Lord,I haven’t seen a Piggly Wiggly in AGES!!!
Glad you enjoyed, DC. I’m sure that Hollywood sign is MUCH bigger than it looks from down below. 🙂
LOL,IDK,nly ever seen it from the cozy confines of an air onditioned tractor 😛
I didn’t know there we such things as air-conditioned tractors. 🙂
Oh yeah…Peterbuilts,Freightliners,Kenworths…not FARM tractors 😛
Thanks, Sue. 🙂
Great signs!! Wow, that headless woman only charges 50 cents?? What a bargain! And the “genuine fake watches!” That one cracks me up every time I see it, which surprisingly is quite often! Have fun with your son and granddaughter!
An absolute bargain for sure. I have to confess that I was just a teensy bit curious, but I wasn’t going to pay even 50 cents to find out. 😀
Haha, you’re funny! I’m not sure I would have paid it either, just because it seems so skanky. But you never know, it might be interesting!!
I’ll never know now, as it’s not I place I’d ever want to return to. 😉
enjoy the visit.
Terrible weather here in CT!
Thanks, Rosa. Yes, I heard about your awful storms and cold. Its beautiful in Durban. 🙂
Wonderful selections of signs from all over.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
Thanks, Francine. 🙂
An excellent collection! Piggly Wiggly is mad, the headless woman is miraculous but Zuma wins hands down!
Hehehe. You said it, Gilly. 🙂
Bwaahahaha, these are hysterical, adinparadise, I love it. xxxx Ailsa
Thanks, Ailsa. So glad I gave you a laugh. 🙂
Fun selections for the signs! Have a great time with your granddaughter!
