18 Hilarious Signs That Completely Failed

Funny, Lists, Other, Science, Shocking

Signs are all around the world. They help guide traffic, enforce rules, and answer questions. There are often times when a sign is coincidentally funny. There are other times when they are just plain questionable. People see signs like this and wonder, “What was the person who made this thinking?” “Were they sober?” “How could they not notice the error in their ways?” In some cases, people wonder whether or not these sign-makers still have their jobs!

But regardless of the reasoning behind the sign, they still cause people to laugh (and occasionally cringe). The list below contains eighteen of the funniest and strangest signs from around the world.
