20 Of The Most Pointless Signs Ever Created

Entertainment, Funny, Lists, Shocking, Street Art

We see signs all day long, and most of the time, they’re your run-of-the-mill warning or directional signs to which we pay little to no attention to. Some signs do get extra attention, however, when they have spelling and grammatical errors, and or they are used inappropriately. Thankfully, people are quick to share photos of these unfortunate signs and lists like this can be made so readers can laugh at the epic fail on the part of the sign maker. Here are 20 signs that need to be reconsidered.

The No Signs Sign

This would not be quite as embarrassing if they had thought to add “Except This One” at the bottom. But so far, it looks like everyone is abiding by this rule.

No Pets…Unless

Okay, which one is it? Someone really messed this up.

Thanks, Captain Obvious

Unless that sign has braille on it, it won’t be doing anyone any favors at all.

A Fatal Permit

If entry can be fatal and you need a permit to enter, doesn’t that mean whoever does give you permission doesn’t mind if you die?

Caution: Not So Sharp!

So, does the car with a line over it mean you can’t even touch it with your car because it’s that sharp? Another sign lacking clarity, but full of irony.


That must be some super exciting and magical sand to warrant an exclamation mark of that size!


And… please be aware that this sign is completely pointless because it’s very apparent that the balcony isn’t ground level. Maybe it’s the pool that’s 12 feet below that gives it away.

The Notice Notice

Looks like some funny sign-maker got bored of making more traditional signs and decided to have a little fun.

Quite The Opposite

This sign claims to ease congestion, but what it really does is increase frustration and road rage, most likely.

Not So Fast

It may not be used for anything truly important, but at least it’s good for a laugh because really, what’s the point of this?

No Kidding

Well, you don’t have to tell me twice! In fact, you didn’t have to tell me at all.

Such As…?

What’s most important is finding out what prompted the necessity of this sign in the first place, and getting a clear definition of what doesn’t count as “intended use.”

Good to Know

The threat of death is probably enough to keep people away, but the ironic $200 fine notice is a nice touch (no pun intended).

Do Not Enter

Maybe there’s another sign below that clarifies you can’t use cannonballs or laser beams should more traditional door-opening methods fail.

Religion And Clarity Free

Are religion-filled DVD players a problem that no one knows about except this sign maker?

Bad Measurements

It seems as if whoever placed this sign didn’t really understand how big a yard is.

Except For…

They should include that one thing they don’t have in stock — a sign maker with any logic.

Now Now Now Hiring

Hiring now, and now, and now, and yup, still now! We’re hiring!

The Office

They won’t tolerate redundancy, but irony is is encouraged. Seems like a fun place to work!

Depends How You Look At It

For the adventurous kind, it might actually be a good incentive to get up there and check out the spiky device.
