Other highlights from this week's top funny signs include a “Wrong Way” road sign that was planted upside down. One has to wonder what unwise fellow made that mistake, or perhaps it was planted like that on purpose with the intent of further creeping out…

'A really nice car with tires that have no tread': 20 Foolproof ways to spot people who are faking being rich

Some people just love flexing how much money they have . They can't help it. They've made good money, and they want everyone to know about it. Oftentimes, people like this will pick a particular name brand, and then buy a bunch of bags and shoes and clothing all with that branding on it. It can get a little ridiculous when that person is dressed from head to toe in one brand. Other people spend every penny they have on expensive cars . There's nothing wrong with being a car person, but some peo…

Top 20 Unintentionally Hilarious Signs of the Week (April 16, 2024)

Life is full of surprises, changes, and unintentionally hilarious signs. People often say if you look carefully enough, there is beauty and levity everywhere. That may be true depending on your perspective and mentality, but one could also amend that statement to say that if you look carefully enough, you will find joy in humanity. Today when we say humanity, we specifically are referring to man's capacity for human error. Nowhere is that more obvious than man-made signs. These signs could be f…

'The library is now selling free coffee': Top 25 Design Mistakes of the Month (April 11, 2024)

Everyone makes a mistake now and again, but when designers do that, it's kind of a big deal. Their work lasts long after they've made their little typos, and suddenly a product is out in the world looking unfinished or weird . Below are 25 off-the-wall errors discovered this month, from unreadable clocks to signs that never should've been put up on the walls. We have quite a few stairwells that would send most of us flailing down a dozen steps. There are a few subtle fails in the mix too, like…

'That authority is... telling him what to do on his own property': Homeowner plants sign to spite nosy local HOA

For one South Carolina homeowner, HOA rules just weren't acceptable. His case is totally understandable: why would you want an association to meddle with your property? Why is it any of their business in the first place? HOAs, or Home Owner's Associations , are known to be meddlesome groups. They're usually run by local people who police the properties in their area heavily. They can issue fines for things like parking in one's own driveway, or having the wrong mailbox type, or painting one's h…

'Raccoons still in ceiling': 25 Funny and random signs found in the wild

You never realize you live with a bunch of sarcastic comedians until your neighbors start leaving notes in the lobby . Unless you live in the middle of the desert or something, you probably have a few neighbors. For those of us located in cities, it's normal to have not just one, but possibly dozens of neighbors. It seems like there's at least one person in every apartment building who just can't be normal. They're often quite disruptive, as if the dozens of other people in the building just do…

Top 20 Funny Signs of the Week (March 6, 2024): 'Don't be mad at lazy people. They haven't done anything!'

Life is full of many strange (and potentially misspelled) signs if you're looking carefully enough. It's remarkable how much work a marketing team may put into a billboard without doing a simple spell check or using some common sense with regard to the image they've chosen and how it might be interpreted. You would think that among a group of professionals, someone would have said something with some of these signs. But alas, not everyone is as smart as the readers of FAIL Blog. These funny sig…

'No texting your ex after 2am': 20+ funny chalkboard signs outside of pubs and restaurants

Every so often, you come across a pub with a clever enough sign that, at the very least, makes you consider coming in for a drink. Honestly, the truth is most professional advertising these days does not come close to the wit of these managers, employees, bartenders, etc. who happened to just come up with something clever on the spot. Perhaps making these signs was a creative outlet during their shifts. Or perhaps these folks should be the future of modern advertising and nobody is giving them…

‘Stay away, it's for your own good': Locals discuss top 28 'unwritten rules' in their country that tourists always break

Too often, I've seen tourists ignore big blatant signs in their own native language that read, ‘Do not enter'. But enter, they do. Sometimes they get lucky, while other times, not so much. And I'm not speaking from a ‘high and mighty’ place, because I myself have ignored instructions and had to pay the price. One person posted a question to r/askreddit, asking which unwritten rules tourists always seem to ignore when they are on vacation abroad. There is a whole variety of answers from people l…

'Every single ticket was dismissed': Serial speeder discovers legal loophole, saves thousands of dollars in speeding tickets

This dude discovered the ultimate driving loophole and has never looked back. He's like the definition of a person who's too smart for their own good. U/treize_k had a great story to share about their father's excellent malicious compliance . Dad found a way to speed without a care in the world. We've all pushed the speed limit at some point. There are places to be, and there's no one on the road, so you decide to drive a bit faster. And on highways, people routinely go 20 or 30 miles above the…

You might do a double-take and think you're misreading these signs. Fortunately, you're not crazy. These are actual signs from billboards, retail stores, and public bathrooms galore. Some of the requests being made are so ridiculous that you begin to question everyone else's sanity. For instance, do people really wash their feet in the sink of a public bathroom?

'[She] changed our sign to say 'open': Gift shop employee stops customer who insisted on shopping in a closed store

This customer has a life hack to get into any store . All you have to do is take a little initiative. What could go wrong? U/Sparrowmoss shared this wild story of customer entitlement . Some customers take deep offense to stores being closed, or having hours of operation in general. If the customer can't get that random item at 10:59pm, they'll insist that the store is in the wrong. It's not the employee's fault that customers procrastinate so badly that they intend to shop at a store that's cl…
