Create your own Funny Street signs!

I just saw a post about "Funny signs" and remembered a really humorous site where you can create your own funny street, building, highway and other signs with your own dialogue.

Go to: http://atom.smasher.org/bar-b-q/

Currently there is a Bar-Be-Que Restaurant sign but you can scroll down and see more for your posting pleasure. I have used the sight many tomes to create funny or sarcastic signs for friends and clients and then send it to them by email. At first look it appears like you have taken a picure of a real sign and it always gets a reaction.

Try it and I guarantee you will laugh (and probably waste some time creating your own signs!

Enjoy! Now I have to get back to work!

Posted by Mattie Lewis (AvenueOne Properties) over 2 years ago

I have cused a fracas by sendung a sign with  "Just Engaged" wording that has a several friends in an uproar.  It's pretty funny because the signs look legit!

Thanks for finding another way to spend the time I don't have not being productive :)

I guess AR isn't all work and no play.  This should be interesting what signs I can come up with.

Russell - What a funny way to 'surprise" fiends and associates!

Thanks for the laughs!!!

Thanks - I needed a good laugh ----

Posted by Norma J Elkins Realtor Elkins Home Selling Team ( Exit Triple "E" Realty) over 2 years ago

Norma,

Thanks for your reply; the only problem with this funny site is that you can spend an hour or more making up signs, sending them to unsuspecting friends and generally wasting time.

Then again, a good laugh is never a waste of time!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 2 years ago

I just spent two hours and had the best time sending signs to my unsuspecting friends! Thanks for the laughs!

You have to be careful with this, it is silly and addicting!

By the way, how come your name does not show up here? Hmmm...ghost in the machine?

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 2 years ago

I only tried one sign to confirm your post.  Don't want to be addicted to this too.

Posted by Latonia Parks (Paradigm Real Estate, Fayetteville NC, Home of Ft. Bragg, NC) over 2 years ago

Latonia I know what you mean there are a lot of "addictive" things here at active rain but fortunately most of them are good!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 2 years ago

OOPS! I already saw this but it is still funny! Thank you again for urging me to join active rain!

Posted by Allysoun Musslewhite (AvenueOne Properties, Inc.) over 2 years ago

Hi Allysoun! Someone called me about this and thinks i should post this stuuf in the humor group, now if I can just locate them...

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) over 2 years ago

Thanks for sharing this.  I can't wait to have some fun with this site.

Posted by Karen Gentry>>Charlottesville, Virginia Real Estate Professional (RE/MAX Excellence-Charlottesville VA) over 2 years ago

Karen, I have wasted so much time creating signs and then emailing them to unsuspecting friends and associates who are at least briefly fooled and then they send it on to others and it just keeps going.

Enjoy!

Russell...

Thanks for the site, I love those mindless things :).  My Google toolbar spell check would have come in handy for you on the post :).  I'm a terrible spelling, guess that's why I got so excited with I discovered it.

By the way are you going to enter the contest on my group?  The Texas Real Estate group, "Beat the Heat" one?  You get to write a great Localism post and win 1000 points too...hey, hey, hey, not bad.  See you in Austin, L

Ha!  Funny stuff.  Thanks Russell.  I just sent out several "signs".  I will be interested to hear the reactions I get tomorrow.  :)

First victim has reported in.  He asked how I found a road construction sign with his name on it!  :)

Posted by Not Yet Licensed over 2 years ago

Liz I also have a tendency to waste more time than usual on sites like these and...

YES

I am currently working on my entry for the "Beat the Heat" contest on your group and it's going to be a doozy! It's the first in my new improved manner of blogging and I may try and post it before I see you next weekend!  Thanks again, I am looking forward to seeing you!
