Sometimes you come across a 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 something equally ridiculous.

Check out the list below for some perfect examples. From signs helpfully instructing people not to breathe under water, to signs asking customers not to try out condoms before they buy them, this hilarious collection of obvious signs compiled by Bored Panda will both confuse you and amuse you. Don't forget to vote for your favorite!

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.

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.

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.
