Photo Hunters - Unique/Funny Signs



Bad Dog!
I seem to have a penchant for photographing signs, so I had lots to choose from this week. I took this picture of this "Bad Dog!" sign along the Cliff Walk in Newport Rhode, Island this month. Now, what I can't figure out is if the bad dog is inside the fence and will rip you to shreds if you get past the barbed wire. Or if the dogs you are walking are bad if they get too close to the fence. Or if you are a bad dog for thinking about trespassing. We often call our kids "bad kitties" when they misbehave so maybe that's what they meant. And they made about 20 of these signs to put around this fence. Bad Dog!

Tsunami sign next to my hotel
This tsunami sign was in Dana Point, California. Thankfully, my hotel was right next to this sign so my company put me up safely. There were plenty of hotels and restaurants situated below the sign. This sign is located right under the 35 mph speed limit sign below:

Glad you were not in a Tsunami zone. I'd still want to be higher and further away. Yikes.

I read your posts below this. How you are able to tear yourself away from those gorgeous kids is beyond me! I'd work from home or bring them with me!

excellent collection for the theme, I have seen two tsunami warning sings in my life, both today.

I've never heard of a tsunami warning sign. Very interesting.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend. Happy Hunting.

Carver said...

You have some great choices for the theme. The bad dog sign is pretty funny.

Do they think the dogs can read? I remember the tsunami in California. In 1964 I think, from the Alaska earthquake. Sixties anyway. Great signs for the theme.
Have a good weekend Angela.

It's definitely to keep the bad dog off the fence! :)

LOve it. :)

Lemonjude said...

I had never seen those signs before and already tonight I've seen two. Next time I go to the coast I will be looking for some of these signs. LOL

Napaboaniya said...

julie said...

I love the first sign! Why oh why do people make signs like these?! I guess it's to make people laugh!

Scarey to me how about you?

archiearchive said...

The best one of all is the part of the third photo which says "Pacific Coast Hwy Help" Great choices.

Flo said...

Both signs are good but the tsunami sign is funny. How do they know exactly how far the tsunami will come up??

Mine's up over at Flo's Place

Nita said...

Great take on the theme. Mine is up as well. Hope to see you there!

eastcoastlife said...

The tsunami sign is putting fear in me. The place has tsunami? *runs*

Lynn said...

I guess I'll go for your third interpretation of Bad Dog. :D

Hootin' Anni said...

Great choices.

Mine's posted...stop by and see if you can figure it all out!!

Chikai said...

the tsunami sign is so funny. hehehe! i'm just wondering though how they knew that the tsunami will not go as far as this area? ;)

mine's up HERE. hope to see you there! :)

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

The first one is puzzling, isn't it. I'm glad that you were situated past that tsunami sign. Nice that your company did that.

Have a great weekend!!

diXymiss said...

Great shots! The "bad dog" reference is too funny. No matter how it's interpreted, I'd be staying far away from that fence!

PowersTwinB said...

Great signs! ...I laughed about the Bad Dog...too funny! My photos are up, please come and visit

Sandy said...

Great signs and hope I never meet that dog behind that fence...

Anna said...

Great sign, I sure won't get to that fence, just so I won't meet the dog hahahha...

Rach said...

that must be a very bad dog for so many signs to be up!

Midas said...

afater this theme, I realized that I hardly take pictures of sign.

my rare one is here

Bigqueue said...

Sounds like a marketing "feature" of the hotel....who wouldn't want that safety? :-)

Barbara H. said...

That fence is as scary as a bad dog! I didn't know there was a tsunami-safe zone, but I guess that means that place is higher ground than most. Great choices for today!

jams o donnell said...

Great choices. I was just looking at another tsunami warning sign. Better to be warned than complacent!

Sara said...

I really liked the first picture the best. too funny!

Beth said...

I take pictures of funny and unusual signs too! These are some good ones.
