Something Fun for September: Signage (An Interactive Assignment)

I promised ya'll a game this month so I racked my brain for something we could all participate in, and what I came up with is more like an assignment than a game, only because there won't be any voting. Also, since we all live in different countries the assignment will differ slightly.

For those of us who live in the USA: We see them all the time, they're supposed to be uplifting, but sometimes they're just downright funny. Church Signs with inspirational sayings. You know, the ones like this:


So for all us Yankees......our assignment is to find unique church signs. Now, of course, if you should find a sign other than a church sign that you feel must be included, you can refer to the assignment for other countries.

For those who don't live in the U.S. and aren't lucky enough to see such inspirational signs in front of your churches, your assignment is to submit any type of unusual signage from your country. It can be funny, inspirational or just unique and interesting.

So, keep your camera handy during the next 3 weeks (thru 9/22) and whenever you see a fabulous sign you would like to share with us, take a pic and send it to me at ynbspot@hotmail.com. You are welcome to submit as many photos as you would like. I will post your pics, and this time there won't be any voting, just enjoying and probably laughing quite a bit as well.

HAVE FUN EVERYONE!!

yorksnbeans said...

Naked trolls, perhaps, but that's all.

bschooled said...

yorksnbeans said...

So many questions....I believe that was yesterday's post!

Matty said...

Nice idea YNB......I'll keep my eyes open and my camera ready.

NobblySan said...

I think that someone should tell Duncan about this church sign....

is cheating allowed? what if someone photoshops a sign?

yorksnbeans said...

Good Lord...the questions just keep coming. No...cheating is not allowed. Of course, I am no expert, so if someone (not to mention any names) were to photoshop a pic, I probably would not know. But, since this is supposed to be a fun assignment with no winners, I will not fret over it.

yorksnbeans said...

NS...where did you find that?? So funny!!

Geonite said...

Best sign I ever saw was in Washington DC

It read:

"The George Bush Center of Intelligence"

I couldn't stop laughing. And It's a real sign.

I'm on the hunt with my camera in my car! I see these all the time. Just watch, now I won't see any.... But I AM looking. This is a fun contest.

Thanks a million for your kind comment about my More.com feature.

What no naked men, women or animals? Geez I just wasted my day, now what am I to do with all these pics? Mom's gonna be pissed I got her to strip for nothing!

NobblySan said...

YnB,

Just type 'church sgn generator' into a search engine, and you'll find there are lots of ways to cheat.....

NobblySan said...

Of course, it would help if you spelt 'sign' correctly!

Bob Trusty said...

Oh noes! i dont have a camera! I get to watch everyone elses stuff though which is fine and dandy for me!

LOSTL! Hooray for Yorks And Beans!

as Nobbysan points out above there are sign generators that make a good picture. I suspect the one you used might have come from a sign generator unless you know you took the pic.

I posted some funny signs recently (I believe there are all really and some I took the pic). Since I didn't notice your comment (and you are very good at commenting) I'll assume you missed it.

thanks in advance if you check it out and feel free to 'steal' them but give me and the Namibia guy credit (it will make sense if you read the post)

NobblySan said...

But here's a genuine one!

MrsN spotted this one in a restauarant in florence last month. For those who have never useda toilet before, I should imagine that graphic instructions are invaluable.

yorksnbeans said...

Thank you NS...I will post it!

Lisle...Yes, I did pick that sign up from the internet. If you could tell me exactly which ones you would like me to post, I will, but I would feel more comfortable only posting ones that were submitted by the actual blogger.

lisleman said...

Ok the one that I find a funny understatement is the rattlesnake one. It's a warning but does read or appear as one. It's on that post in my last comment.

The other funny ones are from that blogger in Namibia - you could ask him. He was glad to let me use his pictures.

thanks
