Crazy signs in English, sort of.

Sign at a cemetery :

PERSONS ARE PROHIBITED TO PICK FLOWERS FROM ANY BUT THEIR OWN GRAVES.

 I couldn’t stop laughing at these ridiculous signs. Some of them are obvious jokes, but the ones catering to English-speaking tourists in other countries are flat-out  hilarious!  I wouldn’t suggest you use them in a classroom for Elementary students, but High school and older will get a big kick out of them.
