Nobody just builds a sign because it looks good. If that was the case, we’d probably have paintings and photographs on display on the roads.

Whether it’s a sign with an advert or a road sign, it’s there because it has a message to say. These bits of info become quintessential in moving around places, knowing what you’re allowed to do and, more often, what you're not, or being aware of the direction you’re going. But what if the signs fail to do what they are supposed to?

That’s how they end up on one of these Facebook groups: Stupid and Weird signs or Really Bad Signs. Both communities provide pure entertainment that shares anything from road and shop signs to street and public signs that have something off about them. Sometimes it’s a spelling error, other times it’s a unique message, so I leave the stage to them. Scroll down and upvote your favorite ones!

Those rude chickens are crossing the roads making them slippery. So unreasonable, yet crafty. Just drink your strange juice slowly so it’s effects won’t happen suddenly for you. I have Google translate.

Looks like they based their signs on the actual translations of those tattoos that non-Asian idiots got, thinking they were cool because they were in Chinese (or Japanese), only they actually said stuff like “I’m a moron”.
