As famed Shakespearean heroine Juliet once asked, “What’s in a name?” Well, sometimes quite a bit actually. As you’ll see among the unfortunate sign disasters below, sometimes a Home Depot or Mexican restaurant by any other name does not smell quite so sweet. Here we’ve collected some of the greatest funny sign burnouts of all time in order to show you what we mean.
Though the signs you’ll see here serve their purpose by day, by night they go rogue and demonstrate exactly how important fixing a burned out letter or two can be. As these funny sign burnouts prove with delightful hilarity, sometimes a few little letters can mean the difference between selling a legitimate product and getting investigated by the authorities.
We’ve got signs offering consumers everything from drugs and loose women to crappy buffet dinners and offensive Mexican food. So if you’re looking for a good laugh or the chance to show your own employees the important of sign maintenance, you’ve come to the right place. You’ll see shoe stores appear to turn to brothels, restaurants go from appetizing to disturbing, and even street lights go from helpful to offensive, right before your very eyes. So, get ready for a grin as you witness the hidden insults hidden in popular store names.
