If you've been around Bored Panda long enough, you know we have a soft spot for signs.

From Australian artist Michael Pederson to the legendary El Arroyo restaurant, we cover pretty much everyone who knows how to send a message. Or doesn't!

There's a Facebook group called 'The Absurd Sign Project' and, as the name implies, its members are sharing the funniest sign fails they can find.

We're talking brutal spelling mistakes, contradictory statements... you know, the good stuff. So join us and let's take a look at some of the most popular posts on the group.

We contacted the group's administrators and moderators and one of them, Craig Hey, was kind enough to tell us more about this amusing corner of the internet.

"The community is fantastic," Craig told Bored Panda.

The gang is approaching 100,000 members but the predecessor of 'The Absurd Sign Project' had 166,000 before Facebook decided to ban it.

However, when it comes to content, numbers aren't the most important thing.

From time to time, bigger Facebook groups attract toxic users who want to litter all over them but Craig said they don't have this problem.

"Sometimes we have to take down a post we think Facebook won't like, but we don't get too many trolls. We have a dedicated admin and mod team who love seeing the group thrive and grow. Our most common issue is people not being happy over the posts we have to take down so we don't get shut down."

As you can see, the signs that get featured on the group come from a variety of places but there are a few leaders.

"The biggest provider of entertainment, I would say, are restaurants and supermarkets," Craig said.

The representative of 'The Absurd Sign Project' thinks the main reason why there are so many funny signs isn't incompetence. Rather, it's our desire to make each other laugh.

"We are the biggest absurd sign group I've found and we are the original group," Craig added.

"If anyone has any absurd signs of their own and wants to share, we would love to keep growing as a community and we want to see them!"

If you also have to make a sign, whether it's for your kid's lemonade stand or a business of your own, it might be worth remembering a chat in our earlier piece on funny and clever signs with Adrian Geach.

Geach, who has been a signwriter since 1980, told Bored Panda that "a good sign should be eye-catching, easy to understand and not too wordy with enough negative space around the text or logo, and have a good color scheme."

Geach has been successfully involved in all areas of signage and graphics for decades but not that long ago, he went back to his roots and now concentrates on traditional signwriting.

With the current resurgence of interest in signwriting and hand-rendered work, he utilizes his skills to offer clients a more personal, unique, environmentally friendly, and organic signage solution using old-fashioned materials and techniques.

"A sign might only be looked at for a few seconds so it needs to leave an impression within this time frame, hence the less is more approach," he said.

The irony

View more comments

"There are many factors to take into account when designing a sign, but the most important thing is to make sure it doesn't get lost in its surroundings," Geach revealed. 

"A bad sign is too much lettering, not enough space around or in-between text and logos, and bad color choices."

But after seeing a few more posts on 'The Absurd Sign Project', we'll become experts on those by ourselves!
