It’s amazing how many people go to considerable lengths to tell other people wacky things on boards – and often get the message so delightfully wrong doing it. Hundreds of these memorable signs have been spotted, photographed, and sent in by Getaway readers as they journey through these hilarious, poignant, silly, ridiculous and often bewildering signs.
Getaway magazine looks back over the twenty-odd years of publishing to bring you this Best of Getaway Funny Signs collection. That isn’t to say these funny signs have all been seen before. In recent years travel has become easier and more and more Getaway readers have explored an ever-increasing footprint across the planet, meaning the repertoire of funny signs pictures have grown to include some never-seen-before corkers.
What makes a classic funny sign picture? Well, an exotic blend of innovative English grammar, plain and simple innocence and a dash of classic irony. Do the creators of these signs do it on purpose? Well, sometimes they probably do.
