Save us from ourselves

There is a lyric in a classic rock song that states, "Those who know what's best for us, must rise and save us from ourselves." While the author who worte those words was being sarcastic, there are those in the world who feel the need to do it anyway.

In the spirit of some of my previous blogs, here are some images of good intentions gone wrong.

This is where I'd write something clever, but frankly with this picture, I got nothin'.

I just want to know how many people actually tried this before they had to put up a warning sign.

I, personally, have cut my hands 17 times on this sign. If only I had read it closer. Oh, and what does the fine print say at the bottom?

Here is a rare photo of the number to call before they switched it to "911".

Kinda puts a whole new spin on the term "finger food", doesn't it?

Yes, after you die, they will search your body for $200. And if you don't have it in cash? They will sell anything the find on you to raise the funds. That'll teach ya!

It's all fun and games until someone gets hit in the eye with a wrench.

This sign isn't what you may think. It actually means, "Danger! The cars here are so tough they can fend off low flying aircraft!"

You must really suck to pull this one off.

Now THIS is a sign I can comply with!


  1. As always, I find your sense of humor priceless. And I agree, what were they thinking? Puts a whole new twist to "here's your sign!"

    I look forward to reading more.

  2. There's nothing worse than Death coupled with a fine. The sign about toxic waste is for all the incredible Hulk fans out there.

  3. Great Post Lloyd! Reminds me of a sign that hung in a restaurant in England. It was above the doorway leading to the toilets as they say there. It read:

    Toilets and music room!

    Funny thing was, the music come from the "toilets" just doesn't come across as very appealing. Go figure.
