Whilst protests in America have erupted over the past few years, there’s one recurring character taking his own message to the streets. You might recognize Seth Phillips as the guy in sunglasses holding a cardboard sign and protesting random things, no matter how weird or strange they are. But the best thing is, we can relate to most of what this NYC protestor has to say.

So, if you’ve ever felt like your voice and opinion doesn’t matter in the vast world, then ‘Dude With Sign’ is here to prove you wrong. He calls out the annoying things that we wish we had the guts to tell others. Yes, there should be more chips and less air in bags! H-hey, first-world problems are still problems, o-okay?

We collected the very best of his funny protest signs, so scroll down and enjoy! Let us know which ones you agree with the most from this unsung hero. When you're ready, check out our second collection of Seth's brilliant signs as well.

There are some annoying things that I can relate to here and want to call out too. Nobody wants to watch a dozen video stories of you at a concert, seriously. And to the guy that keeps hitting 'reply all' on our company emails: you need to stop. You’re fighting the good fight, Seth — keep it up with your funny protest signs, this is how we make changes in the world.

While protesting random things does give us a good laugh, the role of humor in peaceful protest culture is no joke. According to one study, humor helps frame political protests, aids in creating a social movement’s collective identity, and is a powerful communication tool.

I'm 6ft6. I will stand up at the earliest possible moment (when the seatbelts light goes out) so I can unfold my legs. On longer flights, I even prefer to stand during the flight.

What’s more, humor energizes protests and brings protesters closer together through shared positive experiences. To put it simply, humor and funny signs are a weapon of the people and shouldn’t be taken lightly.

There are many innovative ways to support a cause that you care about. So, when you’re done looking through this list, check out Bored Panda’s previous articles about an Indian painter who highlighted awful roads by pretending to be an astronaut, as well as about a woman who showed her managers that wearing high heels as part of dress code is incredibly uncomfortable when you're working for 12 hours per day.

I am a 78 year old woman and the man will put up a picture with other friends his age so it is questionable as to who is looking. I had someone 51 like me the other day. I look pretty good but the grey hair gives it away.

I'm a 62 year old woman, and I'm tempted to post a photo of myself taken 40 years ago. Then I can sit back and watch the fun begin. I'm a prankster at times.

Oooh, she looks short, so am I! We might actually be able to hug without me burying my face in her...chest or belly button depending on height. Then you meet and realize that it was the tall girl on the edge of the photo, not the one it was focused on.

Yes! Too many now. Netflix was created because there were too many channels fighting for space, it filled a need. Now practically every channel has a streaming service and we’re back to square 1.
