There’s no denying that warnings serve an important purpose in that they prepare us for possible danger.
But while some make perfect sense, there are others that make you wonder about the story behind the sign — like the one warning about eating hangers or an inexplicable spaghetti incident in the library.
Don't say I didn't warn you...
via: RedditI need to know more about these "recent events." Did the dunking get out of control? Were they being shot out of a cannon?
via: Dump a DayCome on, now. Is nothing sacred anymore?
Please Be Safe
via: ImgurMakes sense. This is a win all around.
Please Don't Flush
via: TwitterNot to get too graphic here, but what's left? Oh yes, things normal people normally flush down the crapper.
via: ImgurNorman didn't heed the warning. Don't be like Norman.
via: ImgurI think the visual really hammers this one home. Alfred Hitchcock would approve.
Use Your Noodle
via: ImgurFirst Oreos and now spaghetti? What are you supposed to do in a library?
via: The VinePlus, if you get too touchy-feely with them, they begin to develop feelings and it's not really fair to toy with their emotions if you're not ready for something more serious.
via: Funny SignsOne would think this goes without saying, but yet, there is a sign. I say let natural selection take over.
via: SmoshI think this kind of sends a mixed message. Bike at your own risk, I guess.
via: ImgurHe's not mean, but he'll leap from the top of the roof and scare the crap out of you.
Watch Your Step
via: ImgurA twist on a classic. Albeit with a slightly sinister spin.
Zip It Up
via: ImgurDo people not wear underwear? I think that would help with this problem.
via: ImgurAs if you need another reason to avoid tube meat, here you go. Chew on that one, people.
via: ImgurThis does seem like something you would need to know. Stay alert, stay dry.
A Slipper Slope
via: ImgurNot true. Sometimes they do if you hit them hard enough.
Don't Litter (box)
via: Aww SauceJust think... Enough people actually went to the bathroom outside to force these people to put up a sign.
via: TwitterBut once you get out, feel free to tweet to your heart's content. Heck, maybe even upload a selfie or two.
via: ImgurApparently it impairs the judgment of both humans and marine life, so please drink responsibly.
via: ImgurNothing is worth it. Nothing at all.
via: ImgurPretty passive-aggressive, minus the "passive" part. But be careful, as they have good aim.
Slide On Over
via: Dr. HeckleRattlesnakes and poison plants? Great place for a playground!
Big Scary Laser
via: ImgurLooks like it's a little too late for this particular one-eyed victim. Learn from their mistakes.
via: ImgurA pretty pointed warning. You bleed on it, you buy it.
via: ImgurWell, they seem to have covered all the bases. Maybe just avoid that area in general.
via: ImgurThat's why it's called a "balcony," I think. Because, you know, it's not on ground level.
Iron It Out
via: ImgurSeriously. Take the five seconds to take off the shirt first.
via: Karma DecayI think your best bet is to just avoid that situation all together. Better safe than sorry...and crappy.
On the Pole
via: TwitterAww, come on! Just think about how much more exciting that commute would be!
What the Duck?
via: ImgurYou know, those sneaky ducks that can read signs. You have to watch out for them.
via: ImgurNo sledding but an apology, eh? Must be in Canada.
via: ImgurAlso, water is wet. And grass is usually green.
via: Viral NovaI bet it only took one person, desperate for coffee or hot chocolate, to try and catch it in their hands for management to declare this a "situation." Good luck with that, buddy.
via: SomeecardsSo this was a problem? I say proceed at your own risk. Let nature weed out the weak...
via: SomeecardsSubtle, but effective. In other words, watch your head.
via: RedditJust to clarify, if you're thinking of going down a really steep slope in your wheelchair, watch out for hungry alligators.
via: Aww SauceBut hey! What do you care about the fine? Remember, you're dead.
via: Acid CowMaybe something was lost in translation. Regardless, it's pretty solid advice.
A Hang Up
via: RedditThe picture really drives this one home, but again, how many times has this happened? NO WIRE HANGERS!
A Double Whammy
via: ImgurIn other words, you will not go quietly into the night. Best to just heed the warning.
Death Becomes You
via: ImgurYou think he's fooling around? He doesn't just wander around there for fun. I suggest that you just avoid diving.
via: ImgurIn other words, it's not the good "tingly." Prepare to meet your maker.
Not a Wise Choice
via: ImgurBeware the owls! They have a taste for blood...or hair. Not quite sure what they're going for there.
via: ImgurHere that, Snookie? Bust out some SPF 50.
Play It Safe
via: ImgurRemember, something necessitated this warning. Or rather, someone.
