These Hilarious Signs Prove Common Sense Isn't That Common | 22 Words

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...

Cookie Monster

via: Reddit

I need to know more about these "recent events." Did the dunking get out of control? Were they being shot out of a cannon?

Holy Warning

via: Dump a Day

Come on, now. Is nothing sacred anymore?

Please Be Safe

via: Imgur

Makes sense. This is a win all around.

Please Don't Flush

via: Twitter

Not to get too graphic here, but what's left? Oh yes, things normal people normally flush down the crapper.

Hi Norman!

via: Imgur

Norman didn't heed the warning. Don't be like Norman.

Fowl Play

via: Imgur

I think the visual really hammers this one home. Alfred Hitchcock would approve.

Use Your Noodle

via: Imgur

First Oreos and now spaghetti? What are you supposed to do in a library?

Later Gator

via: The Vine

Plus, 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.

Deep Breath

via: Funny Signs

One would think this goes without saying, but yet, there is a sign. I say let natural selection take over.

Lincoln Lane

via: Smosh

I think this kind of sends a mixed message. Bike at your own risk, I guess.

Doggone It

via: Imgur

He's not mean, but he'll leap from the top of the roof and scare the crap out of you.

Watch Your Step

via: Imgur

A twist on a classic. Albeit with a slightly sinister spin.

Zip It Up

via: Imgur

Do people not wear underwear? I think that would help with this problem.

Hot Dog

via: Imgur

As if you need another reason to avoid tube meat, here you go. Chew on that one, people.

Urine Danger

via: Imgur

This does seem like something you would need to know. Stay alert, stay dry.

A Slipper Slope

via: Imgur

Not true. Sometimes they do if you hit them hard enough.

Don't Litter (box)

via: Aww Sauce

Just think... Enough people actually went to the bathroom outside to force these people to put up a sign.


via: Twitter

But once you get out, feel free to tweet to your heart's content. Heck, maybe even upload a selfie or two.

Something's Fishy

via: Imgur

Apparently it impairs the judgment of both humans and marine life, so please drink responsibly.

Dead End

via: Imgur

Nothing is worth it. Nothing at all.

A Mouthful

via: Imgur

Pretty passive-aggressive, minus the "passive" part. But be careful, as they have good aim.

Slide On Over

via: Dr. Heckle

Rattlesnakes and poison plants? Great place for a playground!

Big Scary Laser

via: Imgur

Looks like it's a little too late for this particular one-eyed victim. Learn from their mistakes.

Taking Aim

via: Imgur

A pretty pointed warning. You bleed on it, you buy it.


via: Imgur

Well, they seem to have covered all the bases. Maybe just avoid that area in general.

High Times

via: Imgur

That's why it's called a "balcony," I think. Because, you know, it's not on ground level.

Iron It Out

via: Imgur

Seriously. Take the five seconds to take off the shirt first.

That's Crappy

via: Karma Decay

I think your best bet is to just avoid that situation all together. Better safe than sorry...and crappy.

On the Pole

via: Twitter

Aww, come on! Just think about how much more exciting that commute would be!

What the Duck?

via: Imgur

You know, those sneaky ducks that can read signs. You have to watch out for them.


via: Imgur

No sledding but an apology, eh? Must be in Canada.

Hot Stuff

via: Imgur

Also, water is wet. And grass is usually green.

Mug Shot

via: Viral Nova

I 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.

Water World

via: Someecards

So this was a problem? I say proceed at your own risk. Let nature weed out the weak...

Head's Up

via: Someecards

Subtle, but effective. In other words, watch your head.


via: Reddit

Just to clarify, if you're thinking of going down a really steep slope in your wheelchair, watch out for hungry alligators.

The Wire

via: Aww Sauce

But hey! What do you care about the fine? Remember, you're dead.

No Swimming

via: Acid Cow

Maybe something was lost in translation. Regardless, it's pretty solid advice.

A Hang Up

via: Reddit

The picture really drives this one home, but again, how many times has this happened? NO WIRE HANGERS!

A Double Whammy

via: Imgur

In other words, you will not go quietly into the night. Best to just heed the warning.

Death Becomes You

via: Imgur

You think he's fooling around? He doesn't just wander around there for fun. I suggest that you just avoid diving.

Safety First

via: Imgur

In other words, it's not the good "tingly." Prepare to meet your maker.

Not a Wise Choice

via: Imgur

Beware the owls! They have a taste for blood...or hair. Not quite sure what they're going for there.

Color Code

via: Imgur

Here that, Snookie? Bust out some SPF 50.

Play It Safe

via: Imgur

Remember, something necessitated this warning. Or rather, someone.
