    Weekly Photo Challenge - Things that make you laugh

    ParkinT made a suggestion to have a theme to things that make you laugh or "Things that make you say HUH![/url]

    What are some things that gave you a good chuckle?

    Thanks Sara.
    It seems fitting that I am the first to post today.

    This sign was posted right in my neighborhood and everytime I passed this spot it made me chuckle.

    My only thought is; after all the thousands of miles of sidewalk that lines the roads and avenues in America, they all stop right here!

    This sign once existed on the road to/from Ellicott City Maryland.
    I apologize for the lower quality B&W. {This was scanned from a photograph - taken in the days before consumer Digital cameras; circa 1988} It is an old photo but my absolute favorite. This is the one that began my quest to accumulate photos of this kind.

    I cannot imagine a Roadcrew working adding that [yellow] "Dead End" sign to the post and not giving it a second thought!

    Hey ParkinT, sorry I got your name the wrong way around last post - if it's any consolation you were the second name misspelling I did last night. I really should go to bed earlier!

    Not now. If I see something funny I will take a picture. I have nothing in storage, I just started taking pictures when Sara started these weekly threads.

    Ironic and funny things of this nature do not happen that often. I am glad you had some

    I agree it's not an easy photo topic. I took this one in Rome earlier this year and thought it was pretty funny at the time - a real juxtaposition of cultures!

    I am flattered by the popularity of this idea.
    Here is one more from my collection. I hope this inspires you all to find/generate some "Visual Grafitti".

    Intercourse - no place like it!

    Brings back memories. I love telling people that:
    I Honey-mooned in Intercourse!

    Thanks brandaggio!

    BTW: I am serious. Just outside Intercourse is PeachBottom and VirginVille.
    We stayed in "The Red Caboose Motel" during our time in Lancaster area.

    I can't believe that is for real!! There must be some pretty interesting conversations happening in that place Imagine being the Chief of Intercourse, or Head of Intercourse Intelligence

    Or a member of the [very small] police department who, routinely, directs young people through Intercourse*!
