There was a gas station in the city where I went to school that had one of those black-background/neon letters signs reading "WE SELL GAS!" out front. Never failed to crack me up.

this group on flickr pertaining to signage has always been one of my favorites.

If this isn't a double, I'll be extremely surprised....

What is objective about a sign that says 'i will never forget the 11th'? And how has the sign in that pic transcended its intended meaning?

Seriously, I'm asking - not trying to take the piss out of this site.

I love this stuff. That said, it only takes one or two intentionally-misunderstood signs to ruin the next dozen or so for me until the annoyance wears off.

Or, for that matter, ones that are clear to everyone but the submitter, apparently.

This, on the other hand, is sublime.
