Fun Friday: Signs

Things that make editors laugh (and sometimes cry): misspellings and grammatical errors on signs. Just for fun, I’ve gathered up a few of these that I’ve found recently.

All Out of Letters

Delran, NJ. I added an arrow to this one because of the hot mess of signs that’s going on at this corner along our local miracle mile. There are actually 2 typos on the sign, both caused by missing letters. But the line on the bottom is the funniest. I go through this intersection several times on any given day, and it always makes me laugh. I’m wondering what other gems the new management will have in store?

Doublespeak

West Milford, NJ. I found this paragon of redundancy around the corner from my parents’ house. It begs the question: what else would pedestrians possibly be doing?

Awning Fail

San Juan, Puerto Rico. This almost shouldn’t count, because there might be a Google Translate issue happening here. But it’s still funny.

This month I’m joining all the cool kids in the #Write31Days adventure! I didn’t pick a keyword or a theme, because just getting something written for all 31 days is challenge enough for me right now.
