Signs gone bad, well nearly


Sign that says Things for sale

If they have “things,” check it out, they might have a good supply of “stuff. ” Who knows? You might find a new supplier for your “stuff” needs.

Parking sign

Click the pic and check out the  analysis of the “VIOLATORS” parking sign. Hmm?

We’ve all seen signs that perhaps could have been salted with a few more shakes of forethought. Then, again on a day when you can let your mind wander, you might drill down a bit further. Such as: Things. What things already? Large things? Small things? Double-barreled things? Purple things? Pointy things? Dull things? Used things? Repossessed things? Slightly rusty things? It just boggles the mind.

Then add the possibility that they also have a nice inventory of “stuff.” Does that include Moon Pie and RC Colas. That’s some of the best stuff you could find. You will also find some more signs which should bring about a grin or two on the Photo of the Week page at Corndancer dot com. Take a gander. We’ll wait here

No parking sign at closed business

Methinks one would park here only under extreme duress or realistic threats of serious bodily harm. Perhaps had they been more generous with parking spaces they might still be in business. Perhaps they should put a “For Sale” sign on the tire. Then someone would steal it and save one the trouble of disposing of it.

Pota 2 sign on building

Must have been a short crop on ‘taters this year. Makes one wonder how they did on cor, collar, turn, carro, cabba, and rutaba.

Abandoned gas pumps

Fortunately, this ain’t the only gas station in its town. Given the state of what is considered art in this day and time, the Tourism Commission might promote it as the “Great Leaning Stone Henge Gas Pumps of LA” (lower Arkansas). Stranger things have happened. Remember the “pet rock.”

I would be remiss if I did not include this late 60s tune:


I have high hopes that this investigation has added a grin to your day. Thanks for looking.
