Ads to make you gigglePosted Thursday, March 17, 2011, at 3:51 PM
Advertising is one of the best ways for business owners to bring in business. Putting up signs draws attention - and laughs in these real signs that have been spotted - not in Storm Lake or the area - but cities around the world.
Enjoy a giggle or two today!
In a laundromat: Automatic washing machines: Please remove all your clothes when the light goes out.
In a London department store: Bargain basement upstairs
In an office: After tea break staff should empty the teapot and stand upside down on the draining board
Outside a secondhand shop: We exchange anything - bicycles, washing machines etc. Why not bring your wife along and get a wonderful bargain?
Sign outside a new town hall which was to be opened by the Prince of Wales: The town hall is closed until opening. It will remain closed after being opened. Open tomorrow.
Outside a photographer's studio: Out to lunch: If not back by five, out for dinner also
Notice in a dry cleaner's window: Anyone leaving their garments here for more than 30 days will be disposed of.
At a motor way garage: Please do not smoke near our petrol pumps. Your life may not be worth much but our petrol is.
In a health-food shop window: Closed due to illness
Spotted in a safari park: Elephants please stay in your car
Seen during a conference: For anyone who has children and doesn't know it, there is a day care on the first floor
Notice in a field: The farmer allows walkers to cross the field for free, but the bull charges
On a repair shop door: We can repair anything. (Please knock hard on the door - the bell doesn't work)
Norfolk farm gate: Beware! I shoot every tenth trespasser and the ninth one has just left
In a toilet in a London office block: Toilet out of order. Please use floor below
In a maternity ward: No children allowed.
Found in an Irish pub: Do not drop cigarette ends on the floor as they burn the hands and knees of customers as they leave.
At a dentist office: Be true to your teeth or they will be false to you.
On a plumber's truck: Don't sleep with a drip. Call your plumber.
