The whole point behind warning signs is to alert us about doing things that could be hazardous towards us and if you value your life it’s usually best to read them and act accordingly. However, there is a fine line between hazardous warning signs and what I like to call “stating the obvious warning signs”. The reason these warning signs that seem to state the obvious are down to one of two reasons: either there are many secret comedians in the world, or someone was dumb enough to perform the act that the sign is telling future “not so smart” people not to do…
10 – Sign Has Sharp Edges
This funny warning sign is obviously a troll, but I still found it appropriate for this top ten list. Imagine if the edges of the sign weren’t sharp though! I am guessing they are pretty sharp, but I wouldn’t say they are “extremely sharp” so I guess the joke is on them then.
9 – How to Use a Toilet Correctly
The last two are blatantly the best and are more for humorous reasons than anything. Or are they? I want to walk into a public restroom to find a guy with a fishing rod trying to catch something in a toilet. He will no doubt catch something but it won’t be a fish!
8 – Do Not Iron While Wearing Shirt
Do not iron while wearing shirt…unless you like the smell of burnt nipples. You know that woman who said “ain’t nobody got time for that” she was reading the warning sign and then began to blatantly turn on her iron!
7 – If Door Does Not Open, Do Not Enter
If the door does not open, do not enter…as that is called breaking and entering and is frown upon in many places around the world. I’m sure glad this sign exists as I am usually stumped when I walk up to a shop and the doors do not open. But then again, I then realise that I still live in a world where manual doors are still in existence too.
6 – Don’t Feed Your Baby to the Crocodiles
Who am I kidding? I don’t know this sign is for crocodiles; they could be alligators for all I know. As much as my little boy would love to be taken for a closer look by you dangling them over the safety fence, they won’t be LOLing when they are getting their face bitten off!
5 – Watch Out, Brick Wall Ahead
Put it this way, if you don’t stop you won’t have a car. In case you have not noticed it from the picture, there is in fact a white brick wall after the stop sign. It’s kind of hard to see. But if you squint your eyes really hard you can just make it out.
4 – Caution: Balcony May Not Be Where You Think it Is
Thank god these warning signs exist or I’d be stuffed! And there was me thinking this balcony was actually on ground level. Whoever decided to place this warning sign here has saved many people hours of aggravation and confusion and to that, I say thank you.
3 – Don’t Sit on Fence, Risk Of Impalement
If you decide to sit on this fence then you deserve to be impaled. But what’s even more obvious that the sign is the fact the spike above the sign is a different colour which would suggest that someone at some point did in fact “sit on the fence”. I bet they won’t be doing that in a hurry again.
2 – Anyone Want a Chocolate-Covered Pretzel
Not only will performing action 2 in the above picture result in baby poo all over your hand, but the parents in the same baby-changing room will think you’re weird! So its best to obey this one if you were even considering it!
1 – Sir, You Have a Petrol Pump up Your Bum
Wait, what? Stick it where now? And there was me wondering what petrol pumps were for. I thought you had to stick them up your bum for them to work! I just don’t know what to believe now. I just hope that the next time you’re about to do something dumb a sign is there telling you why you shouldn’t do it. And if there isn’t a sign present then go ahead and do it so they make one so I can make even more posts like this.
