In this day and age, signs have become an integral part of our world. They provide valuable information that helps the flow of our daily lives run more smoothly. For example, we depend on signs greatly for navigational guidance. More significantly, signs help keep us out of harm’s way. If signs were to be animated, warning signs would be the gruff, blunt, and constantly cranky character in the ensemble. They’re rarely sugarcoated, because their purpose mainly concerns safety. But sometimes, sign makers just can’t help but make funny threatening signs to get their message across more effectively.
Some signs were just so good that its its captive audience just had to snap a photo to immortalize these strokes of genius. Scroll down to see some of the most epic warning signs ever made!
