Sunday Funnies - Unusual Signs We Saw on Our Trip

Pin It!
We recently returned home from a trip to France, England, Wales, Scotland, & Ireland. Even though most of these countries are English speaking, sometimes things are said in a way that we're not accustomed to in America. I tried to take pictures of the signs we found to be humorous so that I could share them with you . . .

Whatever these are, we didn't order any!



Or as we say in America, "Yield"

Wee, wee, wee - all the way home!



An aptly named treat . . . 




We loved this sweet speed limit sign in Scotland . . .



Can't believe we passed this up! . . . 

Just to clear up any confusion . . . 



I wouldn't mind having this one in my neighborhood!

Sorry, but I thought of The Black Eyed Peas every time I saw this one. He he.

Want to see more?

  1. Just so you know what a faggot is --

    Faggots are an old-fashioned British food, and one that has sadly fallen out of favor in recent years. Traditionally Faggots are made from offal, usually pork, and from the bits of the animal that are generally discarded; the heart, the liver etc making Faggots a cheap and nutritious dish.

    Faggots are traditionally eaten with mushy peas, mashed potatoes and onion gravy.

    1. Thank you, Linda, for filling us in! How interesting. I really appreciate you comment. {And I hope you don't mind me saying that I'm STILL glad I didn't order it.}

      Warmly, Michelle

  2. Our son spent two years in England as a missionary and we had a good laugh at the words you can and CAN'T say while there!

    1. So true, Ruthie! For instance "fanny" - a very innocuous word in the US has an ENTIRELY different meaning in the UK & it a "dirty-birdy". Ha ha. Thanks for stopping by!

      Warmly, Michelle

  3. Funny signs! The best one I saw was the elderly crossing sign with an old man and woman bent over with a cane.
