I love signs -especially funny ones.

On a recent trip to Cape Town, I found some by accident that were… well, just plain GOLD.

1) NO HIPSTERS

NO HIPSTERS

NO HIPSTERS

Hipsters and hamsters… easily confused.

 

2) A GOOD REMINDER

LAUGH IT OFF

LAUGH IT OFF

This was a sign planted on top of a dodgy looking uh… shop in a dodgy part of town.
My sister, my mother and I were walking quickly down the street, clutching our bags to our chests and giving all the passers-by the hairy eyeball don’t you mess with me look. My mother was horrified when I whipped out my camera to take a shot of this.

This is a dangerous place! You could have been mugged!” She scolded me.

Well, at least the sign is there for stupid camera-happy tourists like me to laugh it off if such a crime had to take place.

 

3) FOR ALL GENDERS

FOR ALL GENDERS

 

Footwear… for all genders.

 

4) SO GREAT

SO GREAT

SO GREAT

Because municipal electrical boxes on the edge of the curb are just… SO GREAT.

 

5) WORLD’S BEST PERSPECTIVE ON CHEESE

WORLD'S BEST PERSPECTIVE ON CHEESE

WORLD’S BEST PERSPECTIVE ON CHEESE

I suppose we should eat more cheese…

 

6) EAT NAAN AND CURRY ON

EAT NAAN AND CURRY ON

EAT NAAN AND CURRY ON

Naturally.

 

And these last two I found in Port Elizabeth:

7) PRACTICE SWEARING

PRACTICE SWEARING

PRACTICE SWEARING

 

 

8) ONLY SOUTH AFRICAN’S WILL GET THIS ONE

ONLY SOUTH AFRICANS WILL GET THIS

ONLY SOUTH AFRICANS WILL GET THIS

Never have more comforting words been spoken to South Africans…
