Over the years that I’ve been , I’ve taken note on several occasions of signs and other forms of large written expression that are interesting, unique, outrageous, or challenged in terms of spelling or grammar. Most of these were from locations in Colorado. I coined these posts “Sign O’ The Times” – you can review some of the previous posts and pictures by clicking here.
Since returning to the Pittsburgh area, I’ve been collecting similar examples of signage silliness, but since I haven’t been as frequent with my writing here as I was out west, the collected pictures have piled up a bit.
There are some regular displays of humorous signs in the area. The best-known come from the marquee-style sign in front of Marroni’s Lounge on Route 65 in . The bar regularly documents these on their Facebook page – it’s worth checking out.
So without further ado, here are several other examples of impromptu, deliberate, or unplanned in the world of getting your visual message across. Enjoy..
|This kind of spontaneous humor and creativity always catches my eye. Now if only the Caped Crusader could spell ‘restaurant’. Then again, he doesn’t need to..he’s Batman. From Five Guys Burgers and Fries in North Fayette.|
|No…really? It’s for windows? I was worried that someone might try to use it for their MacBook Pro..
|This is the “on special” price? Must be some really special lemons there. I could eat lunch somewhere else for the same money..and did. Then again, you have to consider where you are.
No, it’s not a county fair somewhere – it’s the China Palace in Sewickley.
|The Leetsdale Giant Eagle had some unique ideas of what constitutes
“Young Adult” literature.
It pretty much runs the gamut, don’t you think?
|It seems that every workplace that has a refrigerator needs a “fridge nazi” to enforce the proper cleaning and disposal of lunches long forgotten. Mine is no exception.|
|This Brighton Heights eatery had a unique perspective on the traditions and significance of the Lenten season.|
|A thrift store in Coraopolis seems to be a little conflicted about the status or existence of their public facilities.
Pay no attention to the man in the reflection..
|Turning toward current events, this is a two-for-one spell-check special. Can you spot them?
|The latest edition of the signs posted in front of homes adjacent to Quaker Valley High School, part of the ongoing campaign of the fledgling Concerned Taxpayers of Quaker Valley. What pearls of wisdom can we expect next from this group? Stay tuned…|
Have a great weekend.
