Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be the person at a company who is in charge of designing and ordering signs? I have. In fact, I’ve often wondered how many grammar and punctuation books I would need to read before being confident with my first sign order. I’ve also contemplated whether clever humor in my signs would be lost on the average person.
My mysterious desire to design placards makes me a connoisseur of them. Once on our way back from Julian (a mountain town outside of San Diego) I noticed a sign on a store that said, “Closed, darn it.” I instantly vowed to return one day when the store is open to thank the owner for entertaining me and to purchase something to reward his/her creativity.
What original, strange, or humorous signs have you seen?
