If it makes you feel any better, I read the bottom couple of lines of the sign first and was thinking "Uhhh... what?". Then it clicked that I should probably read the rest of the sign and that's when the joke stood out. The worst thing? I knew the joke... I've heard it being told several times before and should have recognised it solely from the punchline.

^^ I saw this orthodontists' office that was apparently run by a Dr. Skidmore. My mom joked that it would be a better name if he was a proctologist.

There's this lumber yard one that cracks me up. It says something like 'be nice to strangers. Visit your in-laws.' Cracks me up every time.

I posted this before in "signs of the times" What was really funny is someone sent a letter to the editor asking what the cost was to lease historic downtown Ventura [IMG][/IMG]

Hey, I had to stand on the curb of a busy highway off ramp to get that photo.

My dentist is Dr. Cutts....


While driving through Fresno, CA with a van of students last week, we passed a rather large nursery. A large sign out front proclaimed 'Official Pot Farm.' I assume they're referring to their selection of ceramic and terra cotta containers....

One of the Churches in Falkland in Fife used to be ministered to by the Rev I. M. Wright.

With the medicinal marijuana laws and lax enforcement in California, you might be mistaken; it could be a marijuana farm.

Have I shared this one before? Years ago, a new chiropractor in the neighborhood where I went to school hung up a temporary banner advertising his practice. It read "Dr. Will Tickle"

Across the river (in Kentucky) there are lots of liquor stores right off the exits and bridges. One of my favorites is Package Liquors. There's also Big Daddy Liquors, but that one isn't nearly as funny to me. With "liquors" in your store name, much unintentional hilarity can ensue!

That wasn't the daycare at the pentecostal church up the road from the Vons on Telephone was it? Because those jokes would just write themselves!

Seaboe and I both used to go to a dentist (now retired), Dr. Cleaver.

When I was a kid, and KFC was still referred to as Kentucky Fried Chicken, and apparently before they used their outdoor message board thing to advertise whatever deal was currently running, they used the message board to spell out "Kentucky Fried Chicken."

A vicious storm whipped through, blowing off some of the letters. Afterward, the sign (quite interestingly) read:

KENTUCKY
FRIED
CHICKEN

It's been over 20 years ago, and we still laugh about that.

When they were building the new humanities building on my college campus, work was being done by Butt Construction Company. It encouraged enough childish giggling in me to walk past one of their huge trailers with the name emblazoned on the side.

But the one that finally prompted a photo was the trailer proudly proclaiming "Butt Construction Company" with a smaller hand spraypainted sign on a piece of particle board leaning against the trailer that read "Do Not Enter".

I really need to find that pic and scan it in.

On the subject of dentists, my sisters used to go to an orthodontist from Hong Kong whose name was Dr Won Ki Fang.

Admittedly, the "Ki" was actually pronounced "Chi," but it's still quite good I reckon. My Dad took a picture of the nameplate outside his practice, and sent it into That's Life, but Doc Cox wasn't interested.

Baseball players over the years have had some kind of unfortunate names. Two that come to mind are pitchers Bob Walk and Eric Plunk. Nick Swisher's name is kind of appropriate, considering how much he strikes out.

Not to mention Beaver Creek's finest purveyor of alcoholic beverages, Beaver Liquors.

My husband's dentist when he was growing up was Dr. Payne.
