Funny Warning Signs
Here are Will and Guy's Collection of Funny Warning Signs
Funny pictures and signs give us a laugh, but we wonder how much they cost their owners in lost business, or for paying for replacement calligraphy?
Often it's the ludicrousness of these notices that makes them so funny.

Some signs are just plain stupid, while others are merely full of their own importance. These next two warning signs have an animal theme.
Please be safe. Do not stand, sit, climb or lean on zoo fences. If you fall, animals could eat you and that might make them sick. Thank you.
Warning! Alligators Can be Dangerous!

Electric light. Do not attempt to light with match. Simply press the switch on the wall by the door. However, don't take the fire exit, see below:
Problem with Fire Exit
Not so much a funny warning sign, more a fishy exit strategy.
I suppose we can forgive this stupid notice on the ground that it's an Engrish problem
Funny Warning Sign Story
On a warm and mild New Year's Eve, Martha's Vineyard revelers were generally well-behaved. Police across the Island reported the night was quiet and three arrests made Friday night were for operating under the influence (OUI).
Steamship Authority (SSA) employees did fish a man out of the water on New Year's Eve; it happened this way:
Wayne Lamson, SSA general manager, said the Martha's Vineyard arrived at the Vineyard Haven terminal at 8:15 pm and docked in the north slip. As a result, passengers debarked on the south side of the vessel.
Michael Grekwizc of Warwick, R.I. decided to exit the ferry wearing rollerblades. "He came down the ramp and then did a 360 [degree] turn and lost his balance and went over the netting that was across the opening on the elevated platform," Mr. Lamson said. "So he ended up in slip one."
Mr. Lamson said the crew reacted quickly and threw two life rings and a life vest to Mr. Grekwizc. Another employee lowered the transfer bridge as low as possible, allowing the man to climb up on it and out of the frigid water. The resulting commotion led to a delay in loading the boat for her departure. Mr. Lamson said there was about a 20-minute delay in departure.
Mr. Lamson said he was thankful no employees and the man were not injured. He said any accident involving the water is a serious matter particularly in the winter.
Asked if he contemplated any changes in policy, Mr. Lamson said there are not enough signs and rules to enforce common sense.
