"Here's Your Sign" Saturday

One of the funniest things about living here is all the signs...road signs, billboards, advertisements, etc. Either the English is humorously incorrect or the picture is wacky or it just makes no sense to the mother tongue English speaker. Sometimes, they are just plain funny. starts the adventure of "Here's Your Sign" Saturdays.
