Have you ever come across a sign that just didn’t seem quite right or that were so ridiculous that it had you in stitches!

Here is my 13 for Thursday, signs that need a second look! Maybe you have some to share too?





1. “Toilet out of order, please use the floor below.”

2. In a department store, “Bargain basement upstairs.”

3. Office notice, “Would the person who took the step ladder yesterday please bring it back or steps will be taken.”

4. Secondhand shop, “We exchange anything, bicycles, washing machines, etc. Why not bring your wife along and get a wonderful bargain?”

5. A school office, “After tea break staff should empty the teapot and stand upside down on the draining board.”

6. On a repair shop door, “We can repair anything (Please knock hard on the door – the bell doesn’t work).”

7. Notice a farmer put up, “The farmer allows walkers to cross the field for free, but the bull charges!”

8. Seen in a Safari Park, “Elephants please stay in your car.” Good reason for punctuation here!

Now for some headlines:

9. “Panda mating fails: Veterinarian takes over.” The things you have to do!

10. “Enfield London, couple slain. Police suspect homicide.” They may be onto something there….

11. “Typhoon rips through cemetery; Hundreds dead.”

12. “Astronaut takes blame for gas in space ship.” He shouldn’t have had the beans.

13. “Hospitals are sued by seven foot doctors.” They are telling a tall story…..


With that I leave you. Make sure to pass on any chuckles you find, since a smile is better than a frown any day!

Jacqui Lee

Jacqui Lee is 75 and now retired but the last ten years or so have been some of her busiest. She worked at a hospital, where she took several Certificated courses, she cleaned a school, helped to run two conventions, wrote short stories, started painting, and in fact is never bored even now, "I honestly feel we are lucky to still be upright and breathing, and my motto is, Remember yesterday, dream of tomorrow, but live today. I love fun, clothes, food and friends."

  1. The nightly news gives some wonderful ly ambiguous statements.
