Caution: Funny Signs Ahead (Humour) Paperback – Bargain Price, November 25, 2008
by RoadTrip America (Compiler), Megan Edwards (Compiler)
Anyone who has ever hit the open road has seen a sign that sends them into hysterics. Caution: Funny Signs Ahead is the ultimate collection of these accidentally entertaining bits of roadside Americana with signs like No Smoking On Campus Prohibited, offramps to Boring Oregon City and truck stop advertisments for Diesel Fried Chicken. Each page in Caution: Funny Signs Ahead presents a color photograph of an ironic, suggestive, absurd, mislabeled or otherwise amusing sign. Photographed by everyday Americans on vacations and road trips, the signs featured in this collection cover the gamut — from street signs marking the corner of Lonesome and Hardup Road to less-than-persuasive billboards for local businesses like Blue Ball Hotel.
Caution: Helpless Giggling Ahead
By D. F. Sedenquist on November 20, 2008
I long looked forward to receiving my copy of RTA’s new book Caution Funny Signs Ahead. The only complaint I can think of with the book? It should be twice as long. When it arrived, I thought I’d take a quick glance through it and get right back to pressing business at hand. Instead, I leaned back in my chair and giggled like a schoolgirl through every page. Not only are the photos strange and priceless, the author’s comments are both clever and totally naughty. This is a perfect xmas gift for someone who just never quite moved past bathroom humor, like me.
