Signspotting by Lonely Planet

Absurd and amusing signs from around the globe!
Anyone who has spent time on the road knows that you often have to depend on signs... to navigate through a town, locate your hotel, even obey the law. A scary thought if you've ever come across any of the publicly posted absurdities that appear in this book. Signs about as easy to understand as a Swahili auctioneer (to a non-Swahili speaker) or as well-planned as the dance steps in a mosh pit.
With the help of signspotters around the globe, we've assembled a collection of some of the most unintentionally entertaining postings on the planet - we hope they confuse and amuse you
(from the publisher)!
I'm sure we have all seen these types of signs over the years on shows like Hey Hey it's Saturday and Rove. Many meanings can really be lost in translation. Or some things just haven't been thought through properly - an open house fun day at a funeral home for example.
Rating - I give this 5/5 GREAT!!
Get this from the library
