"The Butcher Shop". Right behind the sign...a graveyard.

Driving down the road, I noticed some scribblings on the dirty flatbed truck 
in front of me. Someone had drawn three arrows, Right, left, and down. The 
right arrow was pointing at the ditch on the side of the road, and read 
"El-crasho". The down arrow was pointed at the trucks bumper, and read 
"El-stopo". The left arrow was pointed at the oncoming lane, and read 
"el-passo". I had coffee coming out of my nose.

We were driving and saw a sign that said, "Loose 30 pounds in 1 month." 
Under the sign there was another sign that had the McDonalds arch with an 
arrow pointing to the way to McDonalds.

In a small town in North Carolina there is a junk yard that has a huge sign

I used to work at a residence for developmentally disabled adults called 
"Opengate."There was a sign on their gate that read: "Gate must remain 
closed at all times."

While driving through a small town I noticed a sign that said, "FOR SALE: 

When I lived on California, one day I was driving down a mountainous road in 
the desert. I came across a sign that said, "Watch For Trocks." I don't know 
it it meant "trucks" or "rocks in the road." Ha! Maybe it meant "trucks 
hauling rocks". Anyway, it was one of the funniest signs I ever saw.

On the way to my sisters house in a small Minnesota town is a building with 
a big sign on the front door that says "STRIP-N-SHOP." It makes me laugh out 
loud every time I drive by. Turns out it is a furniture refinishing

While on a vacation in Maine, we visited a water park. To help people who 
didn't want to stay wet, there was a sign pointing to the changing areas. 
Right below that sign, which pointed left, there was another one for a 
viewing area, which -- you guessed it, also pointed left. I wonder who the 
genius was who designed the park?

This was seen several years ago, also from the Atlanta Vasectomy Clinic, and
