If you've ever worked in an office, used municipal buildings or lived in a city, chances are, you already know what public notices are — bland, dull, usually complaining and rarely funny posters that tell us somewhat useful information about all kinds of things. For a prankster, though, street signs or a note out in public is an easy opportunity to get a guaranteed audience for their smart jokes. When the note is a passive-aggressive complaint about something petty, the urge to give an appropriately hilarious response or make an office prank out of it must be downright irresistible!

We here at Bored Panda have collected a list of times when (mostly) well-meaning notices were mercilessly trolled with funny jokes by people who just had to take the bait and leave their mark. Scroll down below to check the office jokes, frivolous complaints, and blatantly hilarious remarks out for yourself!
