Signs, Funny, Travelers
Have you seen funny signs on your travels?

Over the years we have seen numerous signs on our travels that have given us a bit of a giggle.  We thought it would be fun to collaborate with other travellers to find funny signs from around the world.  From South Africa to North America… even China, we received a whole bunch of funny signs waiting for a laugh.  Here are some of the signs that travellers have discovered on their adventures:

“A street sign that my mother and I saw in the Mountain Pine Ridge Forest in between San Ignacio and the Caracol Ruins. Our guide called it “The Sleeping Police Lady”. It is a sign to warn motorist of the upcoming speed bump which the people of Belize call “Sleeping Policemen”. It was not put there by the government but by an artist that lives in the area.”
