Creepy Signs That Make Their Message Clear

The world is full of unforeseen hazards, and we can thank creepy sign makers for clueing the rest of us in on all the junk we could step into. Spooky signs say a lot with their creepiness and sometimes the sign itself is scarier than the danger. That said most of us would prefer not to fall into a radioactive mine shaft so we can thank these spooky signs even if they're too dang scary.
