“I went down the street to the 24-hour grocery. When I got there, the guy was locking the front door. I said, ‘Hey, the sign says you’re open 24 hours.’ He said, ‘Yes, but not in a row.’” -Stephen Wright

It seems like there’s a sign for everything, from warnings to advisories to just plain good counsel. Have a listen to the Kelly Bell Band perform their entertaining song,

Must’ve Bumped Your Head,

while I share with you the most ridiculous sign ever discovered in all of internet history: a sign that warns you against banging your head on the sign itself.

    I have always been amused that our county works department will put up a sign saying:
    - DIP IN ROAD -
    before a spot in in the road where the subgrade has sunk a bit. Instead of repairing the road, they often put a sign which remains there for years. We DO have a large works department with a healthy budget. I can only assume that they have a large supply of signs and think they’re putting them to good use.

    that sign exists here in europe as well, for decades. Dip and bump in the road… just here they are a red triangle sign.. as a warning sign.
