Sometimes you come across a street sign that states something so obvious, you wonder why the heck somebody decided to put it up in the first place. But then you wonder if maybe, just maybe, somebody did something so stupid once that someone else put a sign up to dissuade other people from doing some equally funny mistakes.

Check out the list below for some perfect examples of hilarious signs. Yep, the ones denying all common sense there is. From warning signs helpfully instructing people not to breathe underwater, to such captain obvious like signs asking customers not to try out condoms before they buy them, this plentiful collection of funny signs compiled by Bored Panda will both confuse you and amuse you. Don't forget to vote for your favorite!

Good to know. I was gonna have a spy mission at this shop, and was counting on that exit. Looks like we have to switch to plan B.

In some places there are coral reefs etc. that do not like getting trampled on. This sign might actually make sense. Or if not coral, maybe just sharp rocks and things that would not be nice to stand on, at least with bare feet. Might not be a 100% stupid sign.

This seems like a waste of time & concrete. What government supervisor approved it?

I have seen a sign like this and some guy just ignored it and drove into the water anyways. I don't know what was going through his mind, but I know he soon regretted his decision.

This one is not stupid or too obvious, actually. The sea in my hometown is not so deep, so I wouldn't see the water as a big deal. But if it's suddenly very very deep, it can be dangerous even for good swimmers.

Reminds me a little of the old Burma Shave signs (which were before my time, but still)

Yeah but does it come with a burger? After all it doesn't seem to be obvious if they have to point out about the cheese. I want to see "Cheeseburger with Cheese and Burger!" or none of this.

It's like when people ask, "what's the time?" I say "time to get a watch!"

With all the integrated battery products, I forsee we will actually need such a sign in the future.

This one is not so silly. Unfortunately, some people are so dumb as to try and pet these animals through the fence.

Its not a mirage...this sign has validity, I have driven in long barren country where your eyes can play tricks, and knowing this you could disbelieve them

maybe at some point the water level rises... so they needed the sign (I'm still hoping, I guess...)

This reminds me of the stories my mother used to tell. When she was young and if a guy she wouldn't like would try to hite on her, she'd act politely, then say "excuse me, need to go to the bathroom", finding her way out of that place.

Might sound funny but here in South Africa there has been cases of tourists thinking all wild animals are cute and cuddly...
