Written by Heidi Schwartz. Posted in Friday Funny


Published on February 10, 2012 with No Comments

FacilityBlog has featured all sorts of silly signs in its gallery of Friday Funny posts. There was a tribute to hilarious restroom signs, a story about a scandalous signage mistranslation, and the typo on the sign for Lake Chargoggagoggmanchaug-gagoggchaubunagungamaugg, Well this latest offering is a collection of perfectly innocuous signs that has been “enhanced” by the creative talents of those who think a little innocent graffiti never hurt anyone.

A little techie humor

Some “tough guy” humor

Common sense


It’s only soda (scrawled snarky comment: “What was the 1st clue?? Gain weight??)

RIP Don Cornelius of “Soul Train” fame

He must be off celebrating his birthday (2/12/12)

Watch out for typos, facility mangers

(way to go, Scarlet Knights!)


Too dated?

What if you want bacon flavored snow?

For Valentine’s Day?

Not a product endorsement


Lesson to facility managers: don’t be surprised by the silly responses you might get to the signs you post around your buildings and sites. You are not alone.
