50 Of The Strangest Laugh-Inducing Signs People Spotted In Public, Shared In This Online Group Interview With Owner
Oxford Languages defines a sign as “an object, quality, or event whose presence or occurrence indicates the probable presence or occurrence of something else.” Signs are informational and usually short and precise.
However, from time to time people may take some creative liberty at creating signs or they don’t really know what they are doing, so these signs become even more interesting. A group on Facebook is filled with signs that make no sense, have grammatical errors or include funny imagery, so Bored Panda collected some of the funniest that were shared there.

I never understand why people move to villages and rural areas and complain about church bells or roosters etc. The same sort live near airports them moan about the sound of aircraft. It is a wonder they don't complain if they go swimming because the water is wet.
The Facebook group is simply called Signs and currently has 1,200 members. It was created in 2016 and everyone can join it to enjoy its content, which is “Signs: weird, strange, funny and unusual signs found around the country,” as it is specified in the group’s description.
Bored Panda got in touch with one of the administrators of the group, Alan Littlefield, and we found out that the page is based in Cape Town in South Africa. That is where it originated as well.
Alan told us a bit more about how the page started: “After my wife passed away I decided to travel and see my own beautiful country. So I became a coddiwompler. During my travels I saw weird and strange signs, including traffic signs that never made sense, all over the place. I decided to take photos of them for a collection I started. After a year or so I decided to share some of the idiocy behind the signs I saw along the road. Hence, I started the Signs Facebook page.”
At first Alan was the only one posting photos and only his close friends were in the group because he was only experimenting with the page, but now it’s grown to a community where the creator doesn’t have to contribute as much because it keeps on going on itself.
The page activity section shows that in the last week, 25 new members joined the group and in the last month there were 36 new posts shared.
The moderators of the page don't allow marketing or advertising because the page is just for fun. “Mostly the page puts a smile and some humor in people's lives. Included in this is the stupidity of officialdom.”
They deserve that spot! Its not easy going down the freeway on a wheelchair.
Some of the signs in this list are quite absurd as some of them include road signs, which are there to make sure traffic is smooth and safe. However, unusual road signs can be dangerous as they are distracting.
Some of the signs are actually meant to be funny and if they ended up on the Facebook page, they reached their goal. In other cases, it seems that the creators of these signs weren’t really thinking about how their message would be perceived or they make you wonder what prompted certain signs to be put up.
I wonder how many Karens would try to enforce this. 🤔
You don't have to run faster than the bull. You have to run faster than the person you're with.

What happened to bored panda. It used to actually be funny.
most of these are funny? except the one about beating children?
These are funny, but they just keep posting the same photos again and again. I've seen a lot of these photos in other posts. I guess it just loses it's charm.
I can hear Some sadists are here too! Who find funny things, Boring.
Creativity runs out, replaced by woke-ish s**t, lameness and censorship + for a website run from a Baltic state, a lot of 'Murican agitation-inducing content. Boringpanda.com
Listen BillTheRaptor and Piggy Tee, if you guys don't like bored panda anymore, not my problem. But when you actively COMPLAIN to everyone about it, well, now you're just trying to be annoying. And yes, you did just get yelled at by a 12-year-old for being immature.

Not that hilarious, mostly just annoying or sad
Interesting epitaph you've picked out.
Not sure why you're getting downvoted but here's an upvote for you!
Bored panda downvoted him because they don't wanna accept the truth. They're not funny anymore.
Geez, you're getting downvoted too!!! I lost a day on BP even when I was right. Someone thought I liked T - I didn't - I just said it was illegal to burn flags.
I can see why you argued all day since you are categorically, absolutely wrong! https://www.uscourts.gov/sites/default/files/free-speech-flag-burning_1.pdf
It isn't. Burning the flag is protected under the First Amendment, at least in the US. Unless you're doing it somewhere where any fire is dangerous or inappropriate
