If you travel a lot, you’ve probably noticed that almost all the street signs in every place you visit look the same. That’s not a surprise, since they are usually made so that everyone, no matter what country they are from, can understand them and not get into trouble.

But even a small change in size or color will stand out if it’s different from where you live. Small changes in color and shape are nothing compared to the funny signs you are about to see, because people’s stupidity (or creativity?) has no limits. In fact, these signs that are hard to understand do nothing to help.


This collection of stupid signs has everything from strange billboards to weird town names and funny street names. There are a lot of confusing pedestrian crossing signs and language mistakes. But we’re still curious about the meaning of a sign that says, “Not responsible if seagulls eat your funnel cake.” How often did it happen? Do people really think that’s the cafe owner’s fault? Who can say?

Here is our list of the 55 funniest signs from around the world. Have fun, leave comments, and don’t forget to share it with your friends and coworkers.
